Curriculum Studies Plan B Projects - 2009

Permanent URI for this collection

These Plan B Projects were selected from a number of Plan B's submitted in the past few years. These Plan B projects include a variety of topic areas, subject matter and approaches to conducting research and curriculum development. Many of them were recommended by their advisors as exemplary papers. The Plan B’s include examples of classroom action research, qualitative research, and curriculum development projects. It should be noted that not every example is considered exemplary in all areas, e.g. organization, quality of the writing (punctuation, spelling, grammar, APA) or research methodology. However, each one can provide helpful ideas regarding topic selection, format, organization, how to write a literature review, or design a research project.
