Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Conducting a Survey (Owl Pellets Day 3) - Section 1: Introduction


I wanted to foster student independence and allow them to conduct the survey in any manor they choose.  It was part of my plan to bring the students together to talk about the pros and cons of their approaches.  

Looking back, I would have made the adjustment of asking all students to leave their original data collection handout on their desks while they circulated around the class to collect their own survey data.  I choose to have this process unstructured so students could conduct their surveys in their own way.  For some, this was a fine approach, they found interesting and unique methods for making sure they collected all of the data.  Some tried various approaches
