Critical Friend check-in Today:
Prior to checking in with a Critical Friend to give feedback on your research so far, please read the following article to be aware of researcher bias:
9 Types of Research Bias and How to Avoid Them
After reading the article above, meet with a 'critical friend' to give and receive feedback on your research question, supporting questions and your collection of evidence thus far.
Consider the following questions during your Critical Friend meeting:
Class-time focus -- RESEARCH!!! (+ 1-on-1 check-ins)
I will continue meeting with students one-on-one for those that need the additional support. Word of caution: while support will be provided, this is your last opportunity for feedback (formative stage of research). As of next class block, you will be completely independent and in the SUMMATIVE phase of your research. Any additional guidance needed next class and beyond will be taken into consideration for your summative score when determining whether you have met or exceeded the standard in independent inquiry and independent collection and evaluation of data.
HW: Keep researching!
Some of you may have 6+ sources already... if so, you are on schedule to finish your research on time. Please find 3 more and keep researching, collecting evidence, taking QCI notes and evaluation sources.
Some of you may have fallen behind because of a variety of factors (indecisive on research topic, difficulty in developing research question, absent from class, procrastination, etc.) and may not yet have 6 sources... IF this is you, you will need to get caught up! Keep researching but be aware you will need to devote more time to getting caught up. Please find at least 3 more and keep researching, collecting evidence, taking QCI notes and evaluation sources. Try to push beyond 3, if possible so that you are able to wrap up your research on time and will have the minimum of 9 sources needed for "meeting expectations".
