Students going to college will quickly learn that certain classes require a thesis, research report, on a specific topic they’ll pick out early in the semester. Depending on your area of study, the topic could be picked from a variety of different areas, like, educational methods, content learned in schools and societal implications.
With education methods, this includes the theories and philosophies dealing with curriculum development and instructional practices. The research paper on education methods should include data on what’s being used in education, those methods used for a certain age group (early childhood or secondary education), education philosophy like Montessori, the effects of these practices or even the history of academic theories and how they’ve progressed.
For instance, Montessori method is the type of instruction that focuses on the research and practices of Dr. Maria Montessori. Your research paper should include a background, facts and the history of Dr. Montessori. Also, describe in detail the different types in this particular educational program.
The research paper allows you to focus on one subject or a general area that’s specific towards your area of study. If the topic is more general areas, this could include the curriculum in elementary, middle or secondary schools. It’s best to focus on one curriculum and discuss the different subjects like art, math, special education, etc. Also, consider choosing content creation, standardized testing in schools or the decisions and reasoning behind the curriculum.
Your research paper should talk about how culture plays a major rule in the educational system in the United States. Other similar categories can full under society and education since youâ€™ll talk about each thing. Try and include the affects a certain society can have on the educational system or how the system can affect society.
Talk about race of gender in high schools and standardized testing, education in urban communities and family influences on a student’s education or the government’s effect on the education system.
All information included in the research paper needs to have accurate facts coming from reputable sources. These sources would include your textbooks or any scholarly journals.
