I hope to be available on Monday in order to make you all miserable again and apologize for my absence last Thursday...
And now a few words from Addi:
After viewing your exceptional studies on colour!!!
I think you need to do a bit more research....
In order to plan and carry out research, it is necessary for you to
know what we mean by research-in general, as well as in the
specialized fields of language teaching and language acquisition.
Research is an ORGANIZED and SYSTEMATIC way of FINDING ANSWERS to
- SYSTEMATIC because there is a definite set of procedures and stepswhich you will follow. There are certain things in the research process which are always done in order to get the most accurate results.
- ORGANIZED in that there is a structure or method in going about doing research. It is a planned procedure, not a spontaneous one. It is focused and limited to a specific scope.
- FINDING ANSWERS is the end of all research. Whether it is the answer to a hypothesis or even a simple question, research is successful when we find answers. Sometimes the answer is no, but it is still an answer.
- QUESTIONS are central to research. If there is no question, then the answer is of no use. Research is focused on relevant, useful, and important questions. Without a question, research has no focus, drive, or purpose.
Now to your poster studies homework:
You were given information on the procedures of how to plan and create a poster, so on monday we would like you to present us with 3 A4 poster sketches based on your colour research and 2 A3 sheets with your research material: photos, notes, colour ideas, paint
techniques, materials, ideas etc so that we can see your ideas that have led you to your poster sketches.
On next Thursday we would like you to bring the finished research poster so come prepared on monday with all your material.
Have fun and enjoy your colourful weekend.
