T480 and T481 – Integrative Seminar: Directed Action Research in Diverse Early Education Settings I and II

2 Credit Hours

Educational programs serving diverse young children
demand practitioners who are capable of reflecting about
the application of theory to practice, and engage in the critical
examination of a variety of issues pertaining to working
with these students and their families. Participants in this
two semester course generate questions about their practice
that lead to an action research intrinsically connected to
issues of quality in teaching and learning within diverse
early childhood and primary settings. The course supports
students as they generate questions about their practice,
gather data in response to the question, and utilize this
data to support in-depth individual and collective reflection
about their professional work.
