|Outline of Annual Research Achievements
For this research, I was able to conduct surveys and experimental teaching methods in a high school. For this research, I first contacted a high school in order to conduct the research. Then, with the permission of the teacher, the students, and the high school, I conducted the research over a month's time. The students were very cooperative and the teachers who took part in the research were very helpful. I next analyzed the data using SPSS to calculate the differences between the treatments.
Since this was my last year with the research, I am mostly concerned with analyzing the results. One part of this was to analyze the results from the high school. Next, I will take the data from the university, according to the research plan, to compare that university data with the data from the high school.
In order to accomplish this, I have been putting the data into statistical analyses for the final report. For this report, I will first compare the data between the different treatments in the high school and then I will compare that data with the data garnered form the university in Hyogo. From this, I can understand the makeup of the students better and prepare better lessons for the students using the TBLT framework for teaching spoken English. For this final report, I have also been collecting various articles for the final paper concerned with my research plan. This new information will be included in the final report.
The help I have gotten for this research has been very effective. I hope to continue such research in the future.
