First Things First: Writing the Research Proposal.
White, Martin; White, Diane
This guide outlines the process for writing a research proposal for classroom research on second language teaching, and suggests that this process is an important step in the process of planning and implementing the study itself. The format of such a proposal is first outlined, and each element (title, introduction, methodology, analysis, statement of significance) and sub-element (context, literature review, research questions/hypotheses, subjects, research design, data collection, data organization, statistical procedures) is defined and discussed, offering practical suggestions for conceptualization and organization. A sample research proposal for a study of teachers' question-asking behavior is appended. Contains four references. (MSE)
