Table Talk (30 mins)
In your table group, review the data collected in an action research project. What can we learn from the data and its analysis?
Is the data collected relevant to the problem identified? What data is missing (if any)? What data would make this stronger (if any)?


Reflect on your progress so far.


Pair-Share (20 mins)
Choose a partner and take a few minutes to discuss each other's action research specifically the data you've collected and what it may reveal. Ask the same questions noted above:
Is the data collected relevant to the problem identified? What data is missing (if any)? What data would make this stronger (if any)?


Presenting Your Findings (20 mins)
Before creating a graphic or report, consider: What information have you gathered? What story are you telling i.e. your message? Who is your audience?
