Louisiana Rural School Res 724 Phoenix Week 7 Cl
Interview two participants (in-person) that have an understanding of the content of your research topic/problem. Refer to the interview requirements below:
- Explain the purpose of the interview to the participants by using the appropriate introduction.
- Each interview must be audio recorded and timed.
Transcribe your interviews (word-for-word). Within the transcriptions, highlight any areas that you think might be thematic or represent emerging patterns.
Write a 350- to 500-word reflection about what you learned, what challenges you had, and how you felt about the data you were able to obtain.
This should be about closing the reading achievement gap of historically marginalized students.
Come up with a list of at least 10 questions to ask and then interview two people on this subject.
I will need the recording and the interview transcribed word for word. I am including potential research questions that can be used to determine the direction/development of interview questions for either an exploratory or descriptive study.
- What do teachers perceive are the school contributors to the achievement gap for minority students at “Louisiana Rural School District X”?
- What strategies being used at “Louisiana Rural School District X” are teachers reporting best benefit student achievement outcomes through student engagement and contribute to narrowing the achievement gap in ELA
- In educational spaces that successfully educate historically marginalized students, what practices are enacted by school staff and leadership that significantly influence student success?
- This question as well as the two sub-questions below will foster an in-depth investigation into the “how”, “what”, and “why” of the phenomenon of successfully educating historically marginalized students:
- What practices are common within learning spaces in which marginalized students are successful? How do these practices influence the culture of the school?
- How do the students’ understanding of their cultural history shape or incite their learning?
- What metrics are used to determine student success in these spaces?
- What decisions are leaders (principals, teacher leaders, and others with leadership influence) making in these spaces that contribute to student success?
- How does the relationship among school leaders and stakeholders (students, teachers, and community) influence school culture and student achievement?
