  • How well support you this Summer

    observations and feedback from peer

    mentors

    Observations focus on 3 categories:

    Providing support for students

    Encouraging students independence

    Developing interpersonal/community

  • How well support you this Summer

    observations and feedback from peer

    mentors

    We believe youll find these observations

    and feedback extremely valuable. We

    recognize some of you may not want to

    be observed and so you have the option

    to opt out of the program.

    Watch for an email and

    then respond ASAP

  • You are excellent researchers

    Teaching-as-research lets you apply your

    research skills in a new context. Instead of

    the lab, archives, community, or coffee shop,

    the research occurs in the classroom.

  • Goal: By midnight on June 19,

    youll submit a proposal giving

    title of your project

    research question (what do you want to learn?)

    experimental design and methods (how do you

    want to do it?)

    expected significance (why do you want to do

    it?)

    present state of knowledge (at least one

    reference to whats been done already)

    resources required, if any

    (Submit your proposal using a Google form linked to the SGTS blog.)

  • Goals for today

    1. Tell the people about your project.

    2. Give and get feedback, especially about

    ethical / privacy / harm concerns:

    your project cannot harm students success

    there can be no repercussions for a student who

    does not participate in voluntary tasks

    Is the research question narrow enough that

    you can accomplish something?
