1 Using Student Research in Your Classroom Judy Day, Pamela Lovin, & DeeDee Whitaker
2 What do you think when you hear Student Research? Original vs. Parent Originated Observations & Investigations Research Plan Application of scientific methods to seek an answer to the question Student Competitions
3 Why should my students do independent research? A research project: teaches a student how scientists approach a problem and seek answers teaches lifelong learning skills, organization, and time management allows personal development as students become experts in their field of investigation encourages students to pursue their natural curiosity and questions that they are interested in answering! helps you to comply with the NC Standard Course of Study and graduation requirements
4 Why should my students do independent research? Allows students to integrate science across curricula and provides skills to students Elementary & Middle Schools Reading & writing in content areas Math analysis of data, graphing, charts Computer skills in presentation, graphs, text High Schools All of the above Meet requirements for Science Honors Curricula Meaningful projects for the new Graduation Project requirement Increase science literacy, student interest in science, and motivation to pursue scientific careers
5 Why should my students do independent research? For High School Honors classes - Students will be expected to complete more independent in-depth scientific investigations and to report on them using a more formal scientific laboratory report format. Students should be involved in exploratory, experimental, and open-ended learning experiences. Students must be allowed the opportunity to design experiments but the designs must be carefully checked for safety issues before allowing students to proceed.
6 Why should my students do independent research? Qualify for the Graduation Project requirements Graduation project components will be developed, monitored, and scored locally using state adopted rubrics. Requirements of the graduation project will include: A research paper written on an approved topic of student choice; A product related to the paper that requires significant hours of work; A portfolio that reflects the graduation project process; And a presentation to a panel of community and faculty members. Should show student engagement in the graduation project process and the completion of the graduation project demonstrate the integration of knowledge, skills, and performance.

8 The Process at a Glance Teachers Form review committees Get parental support Culturally responsive Plan for differentiation Collect and copy forms Science and Engineering Fair set-up scoring Students Topic selection Background research Develop questions Develop a research plan Experiment Write Display Compete
9 Getting Parental Support Educate parents concerning student s projects (not parent s projects!) Provide information as to scientific investigation (not cookbook lab) Stress support roles of parents Request volunteers for mentoring and science competitions
10 Where can a research project be done? 1. Home 2. School 3. University 4. Laboratory 5. Industrial Setting 6. Medical Center 7. Field
11 How is Research Done? The Inquiry Cycle #3 Experimental Design #4 Test & Discover #2 Develop Testable Question #5 Student Analysis & Dissemination #1 Student Curiosity & Interest
12 or Engineering Design Cycle
13 Comparison of the Scientific Method and the Engineering Design Process The Scientific Method State your question Do background research Formulate your hypothesis, identify variables Design experiment, establish procedure Test your hypothesis by doing an experiment Analyze your results & draw conclusions Present results The Engineering Process Define a need Do background research Establish design criteria Prepare preliminary designs Build and test a prototype Test & redesign as necessary Present results
14 Developing the Project Questions first!! (4-corners activity)
15 Make a Time Table Topic should not only interest student - but be do-able in the time that you have Develop time line for developing experiment and methods, experimentation, and analysis. Reserve time for putting together paper or project board Time table may be directed by teacher/mentor
16 Pick Your Topic Most difficult part Should come from something of great interest - hobby or topic know something about Should not be too broad that it can not be answered through the investigation Begin keeping your journal/research log! (gallery walk)
17 Research Your Topic Use internet - but look at sites, should look for.edu or.gov. NOT ALL INFORMATION IS CORRECT ON WEB! (Try using Googlescholar.com for journals) Use libraries local resources and at universities (as well as community and other colleges) Talk to experts in the field - local and distant (wildlife, government, Science Buddies, etc.) Create a bibliography of your sources Look for questions that you would like to answer.
18 Organize Look at what you have learned Think of questions that weren t answered. Narrow your focus for your topic to a particular idea. Develop that testable question!
19 Develop Research Plan Question being addressed Hypothesis/Problem Description in detail of method/procedures How will you analyze the data that you collect Bibliography - at least 5 sources! (Your turn)
20 Planning the Experiment! Make an experimental design BEFORE collecting data! Explain what you are going to do, what will be involved, and what you are trying to find out. (remember that testable question!) Need to have controls and document factors that influence experiment. Need to have limited variables so that you know what is changing and why.
21 Planning the Experiment! Design the process of your experiment Experiment should have large enough numbers to be valid. List materials needed List any safety issues and precautions Review types of data expected and how it will be analyzed
22 Before Experimenting! Have research plan reviewed by teacher (mentor) and get any approvals needed by ISEF rules (SRC and/or IRB) or other groups regulations before beginning project!
23 Begin the experiment Keep detailed notes of every step and experiment in your journal/research log. Use data tables or charts as you proceed to help you see trends in data. Have quantitative data, but also record observational data.
24 Analyze Results After experiments, examine and organize findings Use graphs to show data Identify patterns in data Look for experimental error and where they could occur. Look at statistical relationships in data.
25 Draw Conclusions Did the variables that you tested show or cause a change? Were you able to see relationships? Did you collect enough data? Was your hypothesis supported? How did your data fit previous information that you found in your background research? What are practical applications or inferences that you can make? How would you change the experiment or future research area?
26 Present Findings Write an abstract of your project. Prepare a scientific paper, PowerPoint, or poster to present your findings. Present your project to class, school, or organization.
27 Project Display Review rules for display and safety Provide data notebook and research paper Board should have: Title - Experiment Problem - Results Background - Conclusion Hypothesis - Abstract (can be on table) Experiment Use more photographs instead of stuff!
28 ppm ppm The Effect of Suburban Retention Ponds on the Concentration of Polluted Runoff Question Are suburban retention ponds effective at reducing the amount of pollutants entering streams as they are designed to do? Before rain 1 After rain Base line - 1 After 2rain before rain Flow #1 into pond Flow #2 into pond Flow #1 exiting pond Flow #2 exiting pond Stream #1 out of pond Stream #2 out of pond ph Sample collection Testing Flow #1 into pond Flow #2 into pond Flow #1 exiting pond Flow #2 exiting pond Stream #1 out of pond Stream #2 out of pond Alkalinity Procedures Collect water samples approximately an hour and a half into a rainfall to identify the spate. Collect two samples from each of three locations by submerging the top of a nalgene bottle. Test the samples for nitrites and nitrates, ions contributing to hardness, alkalinity, and ph will also be tested.

The greatest concentration of pollution was at sites 1 and 2, where runoff water entered the pond, the least was where the water exited the pond, effluent sites 1 and 2, even though the differences were not significant. Site 1, where the runoff water entered the pond, had about ten times more nitrites and nitrates than any other sample. It also had greater hardness and alkalinity. The first stream site had a dramatic rise of hardness, alkalinity, and ph on January 5, The stream had the highest concentration of suspended solids, followed by Sites E1 and E2. More precipitation samples are needed.
