CRT 598/599 Seminar and Project in Action Research

After completing 24 credits, the candidate may register for CRT 598  /CRT 599  Action Research I & II. During these two courses, each candidate develops an appropriate field research project following a seminar directing the design and assessment procedures for action research. The direction of the action research will be focused on the inclusive classroom and the strategies for its success. The field work for this course requires a minimum of 60 hours in an educational setting determined by the candidate’s selected specialization and/or certification. This research typically requires more than one semester, so the student must register for both courses in fall and spring of one academic year.

It is expected that the candidates will achieve each of the following objectives at the conclusion of this field experience:

  • Design an action research project to use the skills and knowledge for inclusionary education.
  • Describe a hypothesis for the instruction of a student in an inclusionary setting and design the instructional strategies according to the hypothesis.
  • Assess the results attained through the use of the strategies selected and implemented.
  • Engage in instructional design with accommodations for the student in an inclusionary setting.
  • Participate in daily instruction for students with special needs at a variety of levels.
