Participants will learn the basics of conducting self-study, action research, and program evaluation to promote quality immersion education at the classroom, school, and district levels. Topics discussed will include defining research or evaluation questions; types of data that can be collected on student outcomes, teaching practices, community involvement and program implementation; and working together with external partners to conduct research and evaluation. The use of the Guiding Principles for Dual Language Education as a tool for self-evaluation will be demonstrated.
