    Writing your research questions Writing your research questions Presentation Transcript

    • Writing Your Research Questions: A look into a possibly changing future
    • Research Questions
      • Guide now and will guide your inquiry
      • May change as your understanding of the topic changes
      • May change as you analyze your data
    • Focus your RQs on:
      • Exploring impact
      • Deep understanding
      • Gathering participants’ perceptions
      • Openness
      • Not proving
      • Not measuring
      • Not strong hypotheses
    • Examples of Problematic RQs:
      • What is the best way to teach ELLs oral skills?
      • (This question requires extensive research of studies already done. Population? Context?)
      • What can we do to teach English to students effectively?
      • (This question can be addressed in Implications for Instruction. Context? Population?)
    • Examples of Effective RQs
      • What are the characteristics of oral English language instruction provided to 10 th -grade ELLs at a public school?
      • (This question requires thick description and may provide a range of findings)
      • What is the impact of explicit writing-strategy instruction for a group of 5 th -grade public school ELLs ?
      • (This question implies that the project includes an instructional design, and that the researchers will examine the students’ response to the lessons)
      • What kind of knowledge and understanding does it take to design English instruction that targets public school 4 th -graders’ learning styles?
      • (This question inquires for a reflection from the researchers around their instructional design)
      • What characterizes the instructional contexts where students respond positively/negatively to the English instruction?
      • (This question requires description of contexts where instruction occurs and the attention to the students reactions to the instruction)
