Application Assignment: Understanding Research
Note: Your Application Assignment this week has two parts.
Part 1: Charting Your Growing Knowledge
As you know, Part 1 of the Application Assignment, the construction of the “Understanding Research” chart, provides opportunities for you to develop a deeper understanding of the weekly resources, especially the theoretical concepts of research. Every week you define terms, summarize key features of the readings, and reflect on the content.
This week, your focus is on research ethics. Take this opportunity to learn more about terms with which you are unfamiliar and to broaden your knowledge of the research process. The topic of ethics in research may have provoked more questions about the treatment of children and families as research participants. Feel free to articulate any questions you may have in this context, and add them to your chart in the reflection section so that it becomes even more personalized and meaningful to you.
