A couple things we all want you to remember:
- Your question doesn't have to be pefectly formulated by the end of the SI - just enough to help you get your research prospectus written.
- Your question doesn't have to be fancy - just something you're wondering about in your classroom - as reflective teachers, you'll naturally be wondering something that other people would be interested in, too.
- You're not writing a PhD dissertation. We're not even asking you to have any research done by the end of the SI. It's simply a proposal for how you'll try to answer your question in your class(es) in the coming year. And, you include a brief bibliography of a few articles or books that have been written by others who are exploring this question. (My prospectus was 1.5 pages, single-spaced, with some bullets interspersed. No huge deal!)
Good luck - remember to ask us, especially Craig and Cindy, if you need help with teacher research.
