Advanced Placement A research project journal by Ms. Basgall

Tuesday, May 23, 2017: During my research I have concluded that advanced placement classes would be highly beneficial for Inland Lakes Schools. I believe that by implementing these at Inland Lakes, it would support the academic rigor and overall success of college bound students. I hope that the advanced placement conference during the summer will provide me with more information on how to start this process.

Thursday, April 20, 2017: We started brainstorming topics of change for Indian River and Inland Lakes Schools. Everyone seemed to have really thought out problems they wanted solutions for or had solutions instead. I waited to see a topic pop up that I could actually have power to change as an educator to benefit my students. The topic of advanced placement came up, and this is something that I am actively pursuing to change within the English department. I've decided on researching the advanced placement topic for my project.

Friday, April 21, 2017: I focused my research topic of advanced placement courses into a research proposal. I found that I needed to include primary and secondary source research. I struggled with what primary sources I could gather data from but eventually came up with the idea of conducting an interview with a teacher who already teaches AP English and a survey of students who would actually be interested in taking this course. I wonder if students even know what advanced placement courses are all about?

Monday, May 22, 2017: The survey that I designed was really informative. My peers seemed interested in my topic of advance placement courses. Something that I am still wondering about would be, how many students would actually take this class seriously? I've heard them struggle through harder courses, I'm unsure of how different this one might be.
