Research Seminar

Introduction

Let's Be Social!

Getting Started | Background Information | Reference Material

Reference Material in the form of subject dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks typically provide background essays, definitions, broad overviews of various topics, or other pertinent facts. A collection of searchable eReference titles like Sage eReference.

Topics:

Does a lack of cultural contexts in the elementary curricula affect a students’ success in mathematics? 

Do gender biases in textbooks and curricula affect students’ decisions on which career paths to follow? 

One topic I am particularly interested in is meal assistance programs in public schools, and how they impact the economic and social status of the school and its students.

The second topic I am interested in researching is forms of disciplinary actions taken in school, how those vary across districts or states, and if certain minority populations are more heavily impacted by these programs.

How does access to wireless internet and technology affect student achievement? 

How does Zoom based learning affect student’s ability to understand/apply information learned within the classroom.

A few topics I would like to know more about pertain to FCS (Family and Consumer Science) education. Is FCS education a needed field? Why is there a shortage of educators in FCS education? 

Does teaching students in their learning styles improve or harm a student’s success in the classroom setting?

Do public schools help prepare students for adult life(ex college, trade school) better than homeschooling does?

Do some approaches to teaching these art mediums resonate more than others with middle school students and how do I help the middle school student make art that is relevant to them?
