Case Study – Jen Fowler – NQT Humanities Teacher
Action Research Project – Using repetition and reflection to improve the behavior and performance of Year 10 boys.
How did you come up with your Action research Project?
“I wanted to see if quick feedback helps boys focus on the learning questions”
What do you personally want to get from carrying out the research?
“I want to see if setting individual targets and areas to focus on improves behavior and engagement in lessons….I am hoping that showing them that I know them well enough to give individual targets will encourage their engagement – improving behavior and performance in return.”
How have you found Action Research?
“…having completed a large research project for my PGCE I was initially a little nervous as the memories of traipsing through articles and studies is still very vivid! …..so far it has been interesting to see how the students are responding to what I have put in place. I’m looking forward to watching other members of the group”
