Course Objectives The Research activity course should allow each student to broaden his/her knowledge about a particular, self-selected topic related to a community or global issue. The research topic should be one that is broad enough to allow the student access to enough information, yet narrow enough to make the research scope reasonable. The research topic should be also one that is academically and creatively challenging to the student. During the preparation phase the student formulates a research goal and question (based on literature review), writes a research proposal, implements small scale study and presents a progress report and final report.
Textbook Materials provided in class
