Dates: 7/12/2022 to 8/9/2022

As Joe Feldman points out, "Grades are the main criteria in nearly every decision that schools make about students," from placement in advanced courses to eligibility for extracurriculars. Beyond k-12 education, students' grades can impact their college acceptance and access to scholarships. In short: Grades are important. But how do we ensure that the grades we assign truly and equitably reflect our students' learning?

This book study will take a critical look at traditional grading practices that have led to disproportionately negative outcomes for some student groups, as well as at new practices that promote equity for all learners. Participants will finish up the study with an actionable plan for grading in the 2022-2023 school year.

14. CRTC - Action Research

Program: Catskill Regional Teacher Center

Audience: Active Classrom Teachers

Dates: On-Going (Ends Sep 27, 2022)

What is Action Research?

Action Research projects originate in the classroom and are based on real and relevant classroom concerns. It is a systematic inquiry including gathering information related to an identified classroom problem to gain insight, developing practices to deal with the problem and effecting a change to produce positive results.

Action Research engages teachers in a four-step process, namely to:
Identify an area of focus
Collect data
Analyze and interpret data
Develop a plan of action

Why do it?

A review of recent literature about action research provides the following rationale for action research:
Everybody needs professional growth opportunities
Action research encourages teachers to be continuous learners
Provides teachers with an opportunity to assume responsibility for their own professional growth
People need and want information related to successful teaching and their own performance
Collaboration enriches professional development
There is a gap that continues to exist between research and practice in the field of education. Action research informs teaching and is persuasive because teachers are invested in the legitimacy of the process and the possible impact of interventions derived from action research on student outcomes. In doing action research, teachers have developed solutions to their problems emphasizing their expertise in the classroom. They become more reflective about their instruction and assume responsibility for developing their own knowledge and understanding rather than relying on an expert of authority figure.

Who Does Action Research?
The Action Research Project brings together a person knowledgeable about research and classroom teachers in the application of research to issues, problems, and questions in a classroom.
