Two alternative replacement machines are being consided to replace a current one. Machine A has a first cost of $75,200 and its salvage value at the end of six years of estimated service life is $21,000. The operating costs of this machine are estimated to be $6,800 per year. Machine B has a first cost of $44,000, and its salvage value at the end of six years’ service is estimated to be negligible. The annual operating costs will be $11,500.

  1. Why Educators Should Do Research

    Educators need to conduct research in order to make effective decisions about student learning and student achievement. In addition, teachers must be reflective about their practice in order to make appropriate changes and accommodations, especially for diverse student populations. Complete both parts of this assignment:

    Part A:
    Read the following articles about being a reflective practitioner:

    1. “The Articulated Learning: An Approach to Guided Reflection and Assessment”
    2. “The Role of Reflection in the Differentiated Instructional Process”

Using information you gathered from the articles, provide an analysis of the following questions: What does it mean to be a reflective practitioner? Why should teachers be reflective? How would you describe yourself in regard to being a reflective practitioner?

Part B:
Provide an evaluation of this question from Barth (as cited in the Phelps, 2008): “How much are you prepared to risk of what is familiar, comfortable, safe, and perhaps working well for you, in the name of better education for others?” Reflect on current practices and how you can be a reflective change agent. Think about the following questions: How will you use research to improve your practice in order to facilitate student achievement? What two areas of practice in your educational environment do you think need researching and why?

You must include one scholarly resource in addition to the required articles. The paper must be cited in proper APA formatting and must be three to four pages in length, in addition to the title and reference pages.

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.

EDU695: MAED Capstone week 2 assignment

To complete the following assignment, go to this week’s Assignment link in the left navigation.

  1. Instructional Problem/Research Question

    The most difficult part of a research project is generating the research question. Think about your vision statement as well as your capacity and potential as a teacher-leader/teacher-researcher. Use these current understandings about yourself to think about how you want to improve your teaching, classroom, and/or school/work setting.

    According to Moss and Noden (1994), classroom teachers who decide to investigate questions that they have generated about teaching and learning engage in action research when they raise questions about their practices, test out assumptions, and evaluate the results. Action research gives educators an opportunity to reflect, make connections, and better understand what they are doing.

    For this assignment, you will develop your own research question for a topic in your MAED specialization. (This will be a part of your Final Project.) You will decide on what you would like to focus on to change instruction and/or improve learning in your classroom. Your research must address diverse learning environments.

    The following activities will support you in generating a research question:

    1. Complete the following tutorial: The relationship between the research questions, hypotheses, specific aims, and long-term goals of the project.
    2. Watch Creating a Research Question
    3. Read the article, “Inquiring Illinois Teachers Want to Know: Action Research Questions From the Field.”

In your written assignment:

    1. Identify a general topic in your MAED specialization.
    2. Describe a problem that you are having or foresee having in regard to your identified topic. (Describe the context of your educational setting and/or classroom including student demographics, grade, subject, etc.) 
    3. Explain how you know this is a problem (e.g., describe student evidence). 
    4. Describe why you want to study this problem. 
    5. List three potential research questions addressing your problem. (In thinking about the research question, you want to think about ways you can improve or change your practice.)

You can use this assignment to help write the statement of the problem section for your Final Project. The paper should be a minimum of two to three pages in length and include at least three resources, which must be cited in proper APA format.
