CURR 535:
Action Research in Reading/Literacy

    This course is designed to help students synthesize information learned from other reading/literacy course work, generalize about issues in reading, critically analyze information heard and read, make judgments about the efficacy of policies and procedures in reading, and initiate change in reading instruction. The course is centered on the implementation and reporting of a significant action research capstone project. The capstone project is a three-credit hour collaborative effort among the candidate, the college faculty, and one or more local schools. Although different methods for designing research and collecting data will be discussed, this course focuses on Action Research.
