Action Research

In doing so, the Fellows and their Allies develop a theory of change plan that they want to make in their school and use data to implement a systematic plan that leads to measurable results. This plan is grounded in the action-inquiry cycle that supports continual learning, growth and development. Fellows and their Allies learn that schools are dynamic systems and complex webs of interactions and use the action-research cycle to analyze their own educational systems, learning about the structure, expectations and timeline for creating a plan. During this process Fellows and their Allies examine exemplary projects from Cahn Alumni, learn how to frame a challenge question, gather evidence to support their project and, develop teams within their schools that will engage in the year long work. This work culminates in the final learning activity, a project that is presented to the larger educational community.
