    Activism - You CAN Make a Difference - Joyce E. Barrie

    in Lifestyle

    Did you know that most activism is brought about by ordinary people?  Rosa Parks, at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement, was an ordinary person. Edmund Burke said it best - "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing".  I would include good women as well.  Burke also said that "no one could make a greater mistake than he (I add she) could make a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little."  


    Now, more than ever, the world needs good people to rise together to protest the injustices of gender discrimination, racial discrimination, discrimination against gays and lesbians, and other forms of discrimination.  


    If you have something you believe in strongly, if you have some cause that you want to support, become an activist and lend your voice to changing the world, one person and one positive action at a time.

    EDU671: My Mock Action Research Proposal Presentation

    in Education

    Action research is inquiry or research 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 just want to give special thanks to Instructor Anthony Valley.  Instructor Valley, having you as an instructor has been a real blessing.  Thank you!
