Research Project Proposal for Middle Childhood and Adolescent Development

Provide a 1-2 page summary of an idea or ideas you have for a final research project. This can be rather informal, but should include:

Specific research questions or ideas
Possible challenges you anticipate in being able to answer your research questions

If you are having difficulty coming up with a research topic or question, below are some questions which might help you to focus on an area to observe or discuss.

What motivates students? Are there particular activities/lesson formats that appear to engage more students? What lessons or activities seem to be the least engaging for students?
Are there particular aspects of teaching that you are concerned about? Classroom management? Assessment? Differentiating?
Are you interested in learning about best practices for including all students ranging from your students with challenges to your students who are working above grade level (and all those in between)?
