TCH 539 Week 1 Choosing a Research Topic

Research fuels innovation and efforts to increase outcome in multiple professional fields. Every professional field thrives on research and innovation. In order to establish a solid understanding of a field of study, professionals benefit from understanding the foundations of research and how research applies to practical applications in that field.

During this course, you will conduct an action research study. According to the text, successful action research follows a standard four stage process:

  • Clarifying vision and targets
  • Articulating theory
  • Collecting data and implementing action and
  • Reflecting on data and planning informed action (Sagor, 2017).

This assignment will provide a foundation for understanding the research process used throughout the course.

For this assignment, select two areas of research and identify a specific topic or focus for each area to investigate in your current or future professional practice.

Complete a 150-250 word rationale for each area of research and include the following:

  • Why you selected the area of research and topics to investigate.
  • The research approach you believe has the greatest potential for achieving your goals.
  • How your research will contribute to student success and educator.

In addition, write a 150-250 word summary of the four stages of the action research process, including a definition of the theory of action.

Support your summary with the textbook and 3-5 scholarly resources.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

TCH 539 Week 2 Research Proposal and Annotated Bibliography

To begin the action research process, a researcher selects a focus and clarifies the vision and targets of the research. A close review of current scholarly sources about a research topic helps to clarify vision and targets of the research and builds support for a research investigation.

In Topic 1 you selected two areas of research for your action research study. From these two areas, select one area to further develop as an action research project throughout this course. Based on the area of research selected, identify a specific topic or focus to apply the action research process.

For this assignment, develop an action research proposal, create an annotated bibliography of current research (within the last five years), and develop research questions.

Write a 50-100 word research proposal explaining the vision and target of the action research, including your theory of action.

Examine five recent, peer-reviewed research studies related to the topic selected and write a 100-150 word annotation for each study.

Each annotation must include the following:

  • Assumption of the limits of the research
  • Type of research (qualitative or quantitative).
  • Methodology – participants, instrumentation, design, and procedure
  • Results (1-2 sentence summary)
  • Gaps in the research

Based on the research reviewed, develop 3-5 research questions based on the identified gaps in the research.

Support your work with 5-7 scholarly resources.

TCH 539 Week 3 Data Collection Summary

Once a research focus is selected, the vision and target have been clarified, and research questions have been developed, a researcher begins to plan data collection based upon the research questions. Data collection takes on different formats, such as observation, surveys, samples, documents, multimedia materials, assessments, and interviews. This is the fourth step of the action research process. Data provides the researcher with the ability to investigate authentic behaviors, responses, and work samples in an attempt to respond to the research questions.

Write a 500-750 word essay to include the following:

  • Explain the data collection process and the research considerations for your action research study.
  • Describe the data collection plan and the rationale for your selected data collection method.

Support your data collection plan with 3-5 scholarly resources.

In addition, use a graphic organizer to display the data collected that aligns to the research questions created in Topic 2.

TCH 539 Week 4 Analyzing Data

In order to plan for change, data collection and analysis need to take place in the research cycle. The analysis process helps a researcher plan for improvements by answering the vital question, “What does the data reveal?” Educators may gain a deeper understanding of teaching and learning when data is analyzed and combined with research investigations.

Expand the graphic organizer you created in Topic 3 to analyze your collected data and report on the findings of your data collection.

Include the following in the expanded graphic organizer:

  • Themes or patterns found in the collected data
  • How the information is relevant to the research questions
  • Unexpected information revealed by the data, or additional research questions raised by the data
  • Actionable steps which may be implied or informed by the data

Support your work with 3-5 scholarly resources.

While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

TCH 539 Week 5 Action Plan

Action research is intended to result in increased knowledge and insights that lead to actionable steps that improve the professional environment. The final stage of action research involves reflecting on data and planning informed action.

For this assignment, create an informed action plan based on findings from the data collection and analysis process throughout this course.

Create a 750-1,000 word proposal describing your action plan, including the following:

  • Review of your research proposal and theory of action, including any necessary revisions based on the research
  • Stakeholder specific tasks – what will be done and by whom
  • Timetable for completing each task and the plan
  • Resource allocation – what specific resources are necessary to implement the action
  • Outcomes or improvements you anticipate based on your action plan being implemented
  • Measures of success for your action plan
  • Rationale and data that support your proposed action plan

Support your proposal with 3-5 scholarly resources.

TCH 539 Week 6 Sharing the Action Research Project

Action research is only valuable in its implementation. Using action research as a springboard for collaboration in an organization, you can initiate positive organizational change that will benefit all stakeholders. Communicating your results effectively is a vital part of any successful research plan.

For this assignment, use the action plan proposal from Topic 5 as the basis for a 5-7 minute video presentation to share with colleagues, administrators, and other stakeholders in the organization.

You may use any video platform you choose, (i.e., GoAnimate, Powtoon, Adobe Spark). The video must be engaging, visually appealing, and designed to encourage collaboration in your action plan.

Include the following in your presentation:

  • Brief description of the action plan you propose
  • Overview of the data used to create the action plan
  • Role each stakeholder will play in the action plan and timetable for implementation
  • Expected outcomes and benefits to the organization and the stakeholders

In addition, write a 250-500 word reflection discussing how the action research process may apply to your future professional practice.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
