Weeks 10-12 (April 5-23)

April 6

In class:

  • Peer feedback on literature reviews
  • Talk about data collection
  • Get started on Paper Start 1 (use our articles in Perusall: how do they start their research papers? Here’s the most recent thing I had published too)

    • Start with some history of the issue
    • Narrate a opening scene of a classroom
    • Explain how you became interested (is there a story to tell about how you were interested? An event you can narrate?)

To Do before next class session:

  • Paper Start 1 
  • Data collection (interview (individual or group), artifact analysis, survey, field notes or observations, stats)
    • Primary source (your data) and maybe secondary sources (you find more research written by others)

Example interview protocol
