Culminating Experience Action Research Projects, Volume 15, Part 2, Fall 2009
McAllister, Deborah A., Ed.
Online Submission
As a part of the teacher licensure program at the graduate level at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC), the M.Ed. Licensure candidate is required to complete an action research project during a 3-semester-hour course that coincides with the 9-semester-hour student teaching experience or with school employment. This course, Education 590 Culminating Experience, requires the student to implement an action research plan designed through (a) the Education 500 Introduction to Inquiry course, (b) one of the two learning assessments required during student teaching, or (c) a newly-designed project not used as one of the learning assessments. With funding through a UTC Teaching, Learning, and Technology Faculty Fellows award, the Education 590 course is conducted through the use of an online, course management system (Blackboard), allowing for asynchronous discussion and use of the digital drop box feature for submitting required papers. The action research projects from fall semester 2009 (part 2), are presented in this document: (1) The Impact of Hands-On Activities and Labs in a Secondary Science Class (Melissa Greever); (2) Action Research Study of Group Work vs. Individual Work in High School Students (Emily Mitchell); (3) Parental Involvement (James Pierce); and (4) Numeracy Across the Middle School Curriculum (LaShelle M. Smith). (Individual papers contain references, figures, and appendices.) [For "Culminating Experience Action Research Projects, Volume 15, Part 1, Fall 2009," see ED518899.
