For my master's, I have to do an action research project instead of writing a dissertation.....yay! I'd much rather do a research project instead of writing a really long and boring paper!
My action research will be on how implementing Writing Workshop into the classroom affects students. I am hoping to see students become more encouraged to write and take pride in their writing. I chose this project because writing will be a HUGE component of the new common core standards that will be implemented in all Maryland public schools by 2014.
