What Expectations Do Sixth-Form Students Have of Their Learning and Their Teachers and What Expectations Do Teachers Have of Their Students? Stage One of the Action Research Cycle
Deuker, Charmaine
Psychology Teaching Review, v20 n2 p64-78 Win 2014
Action research is an invaluable resource, which can be utilised by those involved in teaching and learning as a reflective tool enabling a person to make informed decisions about their working practices. Developing and improving teaching skills is an essential part of the teacher's role so this method was used to explore concerns that were evident around two main issues. The first issue centred around how best to explore difficulties that may be experienced by sixth-form students in their learning, especially when making the transition between GCSEs and A-levels, and secondly what teachers and learners expected of each other in their respective roles. Insights gained from these issues could then be used to inform and address intervention strategies to deal with the concerns highlighted. This study is, therefore, a first stage of the action research cycle and it is hoped that the findings and conclusions that emerge from this study will inform future research to address these matters.
