Turn your curiosity about Montessori into a research study. In this workshop, you will learn how to elevate your classroom wonderings by learning 3 three key factors for determining an appropriate research design, how to differentiate among the various styles of qualitative and quantitative research, and how to evaluate the choices you make during the design process. Bring your research ideas or proposals in progress for feedback and revision. Following the workshop, you will be invited to an online workspace for ongoing support.
