    I am a student, I am working towards my PGCE. I'm a little stuck at the moment, my topic is Dyslexia. However I am unsure how to start this, would anyone mind sharing their Action Research with me. I would appreciate any help I can get at the moment.

    Thank you x

    Typically speaking Action Research will focus on a specific intervention/activity for a specific outcome, which you will do twice with a reflective period in between the two to make any modifications to your research design.

    Do you have any specific ideas you want to focus on?

    I'm so sorry I did not pick this up earlier, i've been run down with a cold.
    My action research is centred around ' identifying which resources and support can aid students in secondary education'.

    I hope this makes sense,

    No worries :) I think you need to unpack that further, aid students in what way? What particular area of a student's secondary education do you want to examine?

    Hi Flanks,

    Okay unpack... that makes sense too broad I suppose, aiding students due to take their GCSE's. Should I refine my title ... looking at English literature. How students tackle exam questions as these assessments are summative assessments, and no assistance can be given unlike formative assessment. How should I redefine my title ? I am worried, I wanted to cover this topic as I am dyslexic myself and I know I struggled whilst I was at school. Unfortunately it was not until I was doing my BA at 37 years old my professor picked up on it and I was assessed. Pretty much left school with nothing, hence the profession I have chosen. Thank for all your help, I'm going to attach my email address just in case you want to communicate on this topic further. vaskoolum18@hotmail.co.uk
