Insomnia Inspired Revelation #5,041-b
So if I wanted to create a qualitative research project on the basis that school is boring and implementing publication practices into out curriculum can help, how would I start?
I'd start, of course, by creating an outline of taking points to be addressed in such a research paper.
Let's go ahead and address the problem statement, because those little buggers are always so tricky. This should highlight the phenomena I've observed and also describe how researching it is a significant contribution to education community.
There is a stereotype amongst students that school is boring because it does not appear to be addressing issues relevant to their lives but instead restricts creativity and free-thought to scantrons. Incorporating publication practices into school curriculum would curb the epidemic of boredom and engage students in school work. Engaging students would also motivate them to finish secondary education; a significant contribution to our community.
Hmmm... immediately this seems too wordy and possibly too broad. Maybe I can tighten it after spilling the details of what needs to be surveyed through research.
Accordingly, I have a select number of proposals to share in regards to the effects of publication in the classroom, but first there needs to also be a clear definition of publishing as it is used for our purposes.
I. Define Publication
II. Proposals for the use of classroom publication
a. Publication directly influences a student’s motivation
b. Student work should be publicly displayed
c. Students should be publicly recognized for high academic achievement
d. Publication fosters critical thinking
e. The formal School model should be replaced with the social networking model
Maybe that's a better problem statement altogether?
Ugh... okay let's start over (again).
