Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates.

Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Action Research Selection
Your written response to this discussion prompt assesses your ability to both describe the action research proposal process and formulate evidence-based recommendation for selecting an appropriate action research topic. This discussion also supports your achievement of Course Learning Outcome 5.
According to the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory (NCREL), “Action research is inquiry or research in the context of focused efforts to improve the quality of an organization and its performance. It typically is designed and conducted by practitioners who analyze the data to improve their own practice,” (as cited in Action Research, n.d., para. 1), As you read this week in the Instructor Guidance and Chapter 3 of the your text, keep in mind the NCREL definition of action research as you select your study to peer review for the Week 6 assignment.
Initial Post: Post an initial response that addresses the following areas:
· First, select one action research study from your list of peer-reviewed sources from the Week 1 assignment.
Bringing evidence-based Child Mental Health Services to the Schools
· Next, post the full 6th edition APA reference entry for this selected source. SEE ATTACH Bringing evidence-based Child Mental Health Services to the Schools
· Finally, in two to three paragraphs, discuss why you chose this topic and in particular this action research proposal. How does this topic support your current professional role or future professional goals?
Guided Response: Review the posts of your classmates and the responses of the instructor. Substantively reply to at least two peers with your reaction to the initial posts. Discuss how their justifications may be similar to or different than your own. Also, skim the action research proposal they have provided, discuss interesting items you found in the proposal and how it is similar to or different than the one you posted.
Though two replies are the basic expectation, for deeper engagement and application of the material, you are encouraged to provide responses to any comments or questions others have given to you (including your instructor) before Day 7. This ongoing engagement in the discussion will deepen the conversation while providing opportunities to demonstrate your content expertise, critical thinking, and real-world experiences with this topic.
