Action research plan

In an action plan you have yo follow the stages of this circle
You identify the problem
You devise a plan
You implement the plan
You observe if the plan is working or not
You reflect about the plan

Problem: students don't hand in their homework on time. To see the causes of it I will ask the students to fill in a questionaire. For the moment just the English teacher is going to take part in thie action research plan.
Plan: a system of points and reward. The students will be asked randomly their homeowork and, if they have it, they will receive some points. If the students, by the end of the month, have a certain number of points, they will win a reward (it will be agreed upon between the teacher and the students)

There are different methods to become a teacher. One is the craft model or imitation model where you learn by imitating others. Another model is the science method. In this model you have to learn a metodology, talk with other other teachers about that specific methodology and finally, create a lesson plan together.
