    EDU671: My Mock Action Research Proposal Presentation

    in Education

    Action research is inquiry or reseaarch in the context of focused efforts to improve the quality of an organization and its performance. It typically is designed and conducted by practitioners who analyze the data to improve their own practice. Action research can be done by individuals or by teams of colleagues.


    An action research proposal is the first part of the action research paper.  The main difference is that you put the methodology section into the future tense and include a detailed research timeline.


    I'd like to give special thanks to Instructor Anthony Valley.  Instructor Valley, having you as an instructor has been a real blessing.

    Extended Research Argument

    in Education

    The ultimate goal for a student argument writer is a self-driven exploration of an issue that is important to them. This exploration is one where they inquire into a conversation, find their place in it, and contribute their voice.


    As part of NWP's College-Ready Writers Program (CRWP) we have developed a set of resources that are focused on supporting teachers in teaching the Extended Research Argument. Join us for our conversation with three CRWP teacher-leaders as we discuss the Extended Research Argument and its role in empowering students to be positive, active, solution-oriented citizens.

We'll hear about the history and current work of ARNA, about their upcoming conference and their association with The Highlander Center, and about why NWP teachers and researchers might be interested in connecting with ARNA.

Since its founding in 2012, ARNA has held annual conferences in California, Pennsylvania, and Ontario with the 2016 conference to be held in Knoxville, Tennessee and 2017 in Cartagena, Colombia.


    The ARNA mission unites college and university students and faculty conducting practitioner inquiry into teaching and learning with fellow action researchers in public schools, private schools, community settings and workplaces throughout the Americas. ARNA members are committed to taking action locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally to promote action research that is conducted with a commitment to honesty, integrity, inclusiveness, multi-vocality, engagement, and achievement within sustainable democratic societies. ARNA encourages NWP members to join us in Knoxville to share the important literacy research they're conducting in schools across America with an international audience.

    Research Methods in Criminal Justice – Nonreactive Research

    in Training

    Brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) www.tapsti.org, this 2 hour session will review the work of Dr. Peter Kraska and Dr. W. Lawrence Neuman and their excellent textbook entitled “Criminal Justice and Criminology Research Methods” (2012, 2nd ed.).  The subject matter for this seminar is Nonreactive Research and this type of research is widely used in crime and justice studies. The main way we do this research is by taking advantage of the huge amounts of data, in many forms, we continue accumulating. The authors of our reference text speak of federal crime statistics (UCR, NCVS), the, "General Social Survey, police and prison records, video-surveillance data, existing self-report data, incarceration trends, drug use statistics, documents concerning prisoners released from death row, and court proceedings documents" as well as, "media articles, Web sites, television shows, roadside memorials, hospital records, census reports, and economic data " (Kraska & Neuman, 2012, p. 206). This seminar explains how to use all the data which your department already has collected for you.
