While research requires gathering new information about a topic or problem to enhance one’s knowledge, we all do research on some level within our day-to-day lives. One of the most recent scenarios outside of school that I did research on was the area of Applied Behavior Analysis, or ABA Therapy. For my job, I must work with and implement educational and behavioral programs for children with various disabilities and behavioral issues. When first applying for the job, I had a strong knowledge in the area of working with significantly disabled children, but needed to enhance my knowledge in the area of behavior for students with traumatic brain injury or Autism that may require ABA therapy. While I myself would not be performing such therapy with the children, I felt it necessary to at least know what it was, and learn some strategies in implementing principles for learning and behavior.

I started off with the basic question, what is ABA therapy. I was able to conduct research through my peers, .edu websites, the Autism Society of America, and even attended a few seminars through my district’s website and at my workplace. I was able to determine that ABA therapy is a standard of care and principles for learning and behavior for those with Autism, and some with traumatic brain injury, or behavioral issues that are not age appropriate. I learned strategies on how to implement tools in de-escalating certain situations, as well as various ways to teach academics depending on the child, their learning style, and their disability.

While I had some prior knowledge of working with children on individual education plans, I was able to gain knowledge about a whole other area I had no idea about through a little research.

Something that I have to do a little research on outside of school was what is the best all-wheel drive SUV for the state of Colorado? Research can be fun when it comes to stuff like this. “But such definitions (about research) do not convey the excitement and challenge of exploring a question that might not have been addressed before” (Justham, 2006, para 9). When I first started looking in to this my goal was to find out that a Subaru Crosstrek was on the list. The reason I wanted this to happen was I was trying to prove to my dad that this would be the best car for me at the time. I did many different searches on site like Autotrader and journals. Also looked at Kelly Blue Books website wanting to make sure that the value of the car wasn’t going to lose value and about all its features. Just trying to prove that it would be a great buy and that they are great cars to have and they tend to not lose their value. My goals was to prove to my dad they were not just one of the safest cars but also one that had the best value. After all the research I was able to prove to my dad that this was the best car for me, and now I am a happy owner of my dream car that I love.

Hello Charla,

In our day to day lives, we find ourselves faced with the need to learn more about certain topics and acquire information that interests us of benefits us in one way or another. For instance, you conducted some research to familiarise yourself with ABA therapy, even though you will not be conducting such therapy. By carrying out research on the matter, you were able to understand what it is, what it entails, and acquired information on how to improve teaching for children with disabilities and behavioral issues. By conducting your own research on a topic of interest, you were able to acquire information on a whole new field of child care. Research helps us acquire new insights into topics that interest us.

 

Hello Heather,

I find myself conducting research about automobiles almost every month. In your case, you carried out research to identify which Sports Utility Vehicle was the best in Colorado. However, you already had certain assumptions before conducting your research and you were aiming at proving that your assumptions were right. You seem to have conducted wide research, using several information sources. Even though you were able to prove your point to your dad, I would like to understand whether you found your dream car to be the best SUV from the research you carried out or you simply manipulated the research to show that it was the best SUV. Did you conduct the research fairly without letting your own convictions and the functions of feeling and wanting to cloud your thinking?
