Inspiration for Advanced Learners InVigorate Education
My Master’s research topic was a very personal one for me because it relates to my own children. My kids have been classified as “GATE” by their schools. This was exciting news and I was expecting that this would open up unique learning opportunities for my kids. Unfortunately, my wife and I soon found out that there was very little follow through with a GATE program at their school. In addition, most of the opportunities that were provided took place after the school day, which would be considered “extra work” by my kids. I started thinking that it would be great for a teacher to have a GATE curriculum that they could weave into the school day with their entire class. Enter Touro University and the topic of action research. It was easy to select my action research (the implementation of an in-class ELA GATE curriculum) because it is appealing and resonates with me personally.
