Research Assistant Needed for Research Study:  Child-Centered Pedagogy: Learning Through Play - An Action Research Project
 
The aim of this action research study is for preschool teachers and directors to incorporate early childhood theory with a guided play-based learning (GPBL) approach to classroom practices.  The research assistant will assist me in collecting and analyzing qualitative data which will consist of:
 
a. Semi-structured focus group interviews  
b. Reflective journals completed by the participants
c. Documentations (collection of lesson plans, and children’s work samples)
 
In helping with this action research project, you will gain research experience and your name will be included as one of the authors for publication.  This action research project has a potential to receive funding, resulting in a paid research assistant position.  For more information:
