St. Christopher’s faculty are undertaking Action Research projects to further the understanding of best practices for boys. The boys themselves play a vital role in the process by providing feedback on their experiences.
Year Two Theme
Action research is research driven by one teacher in his classroom investigating a component of his practice he wants to grow. The essential skill of collaboration is incorporated into all parts of of the curriculum; however, research indicates that boys often do not work particularly well in groups and may lack the necessary skills to do so. This study will test methods of teaching boys to recognize, respect, and maximize the different personalities and approaches to learning within a group in order to create engaging and innovative learning experiences. The goal is to find solidarity in Collaboration and the Power of Successful Learning Groups.
