Week 1

 

 

Greetings online students!  

 

Welcome to Research in Music Education I 

 

Please follow the link to review the Syllabus which contains grading and policy information.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Unless they refer to personal matters or grading issues, a good place to ask questions is the "Ask Dr. J" section in the Discussion forum in Blackboard. 

 

Please read these instructions about the Discussions

 

On this Course Outline page, you will find links to the lectures for each week, as well as any general announcements to the class.   The animated bullets to the right will designate "action" items, so be sure you accomplish these each week.  There is an overview calendar at the top of this page for quick reference. 

 

Be aware that this is an organic document.  It WILL change.  You are responsible for what is on this page, not a hard copy that you printed off in the first week of the course.

 

 

 

If you come across mistakes in the web pages in this course or dead links, I would appreciate it if you would let me know!

 

 

 

 

Now, click in to the first lecture, and let's get started!

 

Lecture:  Introduction to Music Research

 
 

 

If you have any questions, remember to use the 'Ask Dr. J' forum under 'Discussions.'  Others probably have the same questions you do.  However, if you don't receive a response within 24 hours, or if you need a quicker answer, feel free to email me directly at vjohnson@tarleton.edu

 

 

Blackboard/Computer configuration

 

In order to bring a little bit of "face-to-face" into our class experience, attach a photo of yourself inside Blackboard:

  • Click on your name on the top right of the page

  • Click Settings, Personal Information, Personalize My Settings, Use custom avatar image

  • Browse your computer to choose a photo and attach the file.  (Although it may express your personality to choose a cartoon character or a picture of your dog, please choose a photo of yourself.  OK, the dog can be in the photo, too.)

Disregard these instructions if you are in the Witness Protection Program.

Reading

Bellman, Chapter 6, “Research in Music,” pp. 92-115.

 

See the Syllabus for information about the textbook and other required materials.

 

Assignment 1: 

Complete the Assignment 1 Worksheet after you have completed the assigned reading.

 

Be sure to answer the questions in detail using complete sentences and other correct writing practices.

 

Submit your paper in Word document form as an attachment in the Assignment tab in Blackboard.  Name the file Assignment1_YourName (substituting your name, of course ;-) and submit by the deadline on Sunday at midnight.

 

 

Discussion 1: 

 

After reading Lecture 1, relate an example for each of Roger Bacon's "4 Chief Obstacles to the Truth."  I have provided one example for each in the lecture notes.  Try to be as specific as possible, with a personal example or one you have observed.  (Note:  don't use the examples I have given you in the lecture; use your own.  Also, try to use a different example than those that have already been posted). Your original discussion post should completely answer the question; provide 4 examples.  For your responses, analyze your peers' examples for accurate categorization and offer additional comments.

 

See the rubric in the Discussion section for point values.  The sooner you post your original answer, the more points you get.  The deadline for all responses is Sunday at midnight.

 

Please review all instructions about the Discussions before posting.

 

Week 2 

 

 

 

Keep in mind these memorable quotes from your reading:

  • "One of the most basic rules of writing is that an author never make statements he or she is not prepared to defend." (p. 4)

  • "Readers have a right to believe that what they are reading is based on more than the author's opinion, even when it is clearly an opinion piece." (p. 17)

  • "Those authors "who merely vent unfounded opinions and gut feelings (in essence, running off at the pen) are wasting the reader's time." (p. 17)

  • "never make the reader doubt your ability." (p. 18)

  • "Make it concise, make it elegant, make it compelling." (p. 20)

  • "The primary requirements for writing about music are clear listening and thinking, knowledge of one's audience, and an awareness of one's own limitations." (p. 39)

After reading your assigned material for this week, please go back to Lecture 1 and review the introductory material on Research.  Has your perception  of research changed since you read it the first time?

 

 

Lecture:  Writing
 

 

 

Heads up!:
Begin compiling a Glossary of Research Terminology - this will be an ongoing project throughout the course to be turned in as Assignment 7 at the end of Week 7.  You will be graded on the thoroughness and usability of your document.  Format it for ease and usability.  These should be the terms that you encounter that are less familiar.  With a handy glossary, you can easily review and learn the terms that you need to understand and write effective research.

 

 

Reading

·       

  1. Bellman, Chapter 1, “Writing about Music,” pp. 1-20.

  2. Bellman, Chapter 2, “Writing about Music by, and for, Those Who Cannot (Necessarily) Read It,” pp. 21-39.

  3. Bellman, Chapter 4, “Three Kinds of Practical Writing,” pp. 56-71.

·     

 

Assignment 2: 

 

A.  Scholarly writing:  Choose any topic related to music education and write one page (seriously, ONLY one page) in what you consider to be a scholarly writing style.  You will have to be direct and concise in order to address your topic in one page.  Identify your topic immediately and don't waste space using long phrases and flowery language. Sometimes it is difficult to be concise.  You must leave out all unnecessary words and filler phrases.

 

Woodrow Wilson was once asked how long it took him to prepare his speeches.  He said: "It depends. If I am to speak ten minutes, I need a week for preparation; if fifteen minutes, three days; if half an hour, two days; if an hour, I am ready now."

 

 Use one inch margins, 12-point Times New Roman font, and double spaced.  Other than that, I will not be particularly picky about formatting.

That begins next week!!

B.  Note the "Heads up" to your left.  Start that assignment now to turn in later.

 

Discussion 2: 

 

You are all music teachers or plan to be music teachers.  How can learning to read research and learning to do research be of benefit to you in your music education career?  I encourage you to go beyond your "off the cuff" answers by doing some research!  See what's out there on this topic and synthesize that with your own experiences and expertise to answer the question.  Give some examples of research you have read and/or used.  Support your answers and conclusions to receive maximum points.

 

See the rubric in the Discussion section for point values.  The sooner you post your original answer, the more points you get.  The deadline for all responses is Sunday at midnight.

 

Week 3

 

 Lecture:  APA Style and Formatting

 

 


Assignment Grading and Feedback

 

 

Note:  When you view your papers that I have graded, make sure that you can see my comments written in the margins of your papers in Blackboard. 

 

 

Lecture:  How to Find Stuff

 

Music Research Journals

 

For next week, be thinking about choosing a research topic.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How do I write everything I need to say in such a short paper??

  1. Write as if there is no limit.  Don't try so hard to limit at first.  When you have all of your content included,
  2. Take out filler phrases and unnecessary words. For example, "As was previously discussed, . . . " is not necessary in a short paper.
  3. Reword sentences to be more direct.  For example, instead of "It was decided that . . ." use "Smith decided . . ."
     
  

Reading

Bellman, Chapter 8, “Style,” pp. 135-160
APA Manual, pp. 87-114

 

Assignment 3

 

A.  From the course readings below (at the bottom of this page), choose 2 articles that interest you.  Read them carefully and write one page on each one that addresses these questions:

 

1.  What were the basic findings?

2.  Why is this type of research of interest?

3.  How can the findings of the study benefit music education?

 

Use this Assignment Template to get you started.  This is formatted in APA style, but without an abstract or other sections that will not be necessary until later. Give your paper a title like "A Review of Two Articles" so that your running head can be the same throughout.

 

I challenge you in this assignment NOT to use the words 'I' or 'my' in your writing.  Try to be as objective as possible in your assessment of each article.

 

In addition to the APA lecture this week, review the Writing lecture from last week for guidelines on academic writing.

 

Submit your paper in Word document form.  Name the file Assignment3_YourName and submit by the deadline on Sunday at midnight.  Do not submit as two separate documents, but as one Word document.  It is not necessary to have two separate cover sheets, etc. Including your cover sheet, you should have only 3 pages total.

 

B.  After reading the APA lecture, play the following games:

error detection exercise about APA formatting.

APA Psych Out (play at least 4 times)

APA Citation Game (all of the APA links in the Citation Game Index, but not the MLA ones)

This part of the assignment will not be graded, but you are responsible for the information learned in the exercises.

Discussion 3: 

 

Everyone is pretty tech-savvy these days.  I'm sure you have bookmarked some great resources on the internet that would be of interest to your fellow classmates.  List 5 web pages or sites that could be useful in a research endeavor.  They might include sources of data, instructions or how-tos regarding research, link lists, information on music education topics, or any page that would be a worthy bookmark for this course.   For each link, give the URL, a brief description of the site/page, and why it would be useful in carrying on music education research.

 

Post your list in the Discussion tab.  This discussion will be graded for completion only.  Responses are not required, but are encouraged.

 

Week 4

 

 

 

From this point forward, be sure to format everything in APA Style. 

 

Refer to your APA Style manual for all of those devilish details!

 

Note:  If you have trouble finding any of the course readings, post your question in the Ask Dr. J forum.  For these questions, I'm going to ask your classmates to give you some assistance, so if you can offer some help, please do so.  Don't post a direct URL link to help others, but offer directions on how to find the source (or where you found it) if others need assistance.

 

 

 

Lecture:  Research Topic

 

.

For examples on focused topics, go to the TSU Library page:  www.tarleton.edu/library

In the Discovery @ Tarleton blank, type in a search word that is of interest to you.

Look through the list of articles that have been written about that topic. 

 

Notice how specific the titles are!

 

 

Lecture:  Types of research

 

Which type of research would your project be?

 

 

 

 

 

Reading:

From the list under Course Reading, choose 5 articles, use the library databases to locate them, and read them.

 

 

Assignment 4:

 

A.  From this week's reading assignment above, identify the type of research employed in each of the 5 articles.  Write a paragraph on each article explaining your choice.  Refer to your Phillips text for detailed discussions and information on each of the research types.  Use the Assignment Template for your paper.

 

Submit your paper in Word document form.  Name the file Assignment4_YourName and submit by the deadline on Sunday at midnight.
 

Discussion 4: 

 

After reading the lecture for this week, come up with two research topics that you are interested in exploring. For each research topic, devise a research question and explain your rationale. Follow the guidelines included in this week's lecture.  Post this information in the discussion forum. You should respond to your classmates by helping them refine their research questions and to choose which one would work best in a research project. 

 

Remember that your topic should be very specific, so narrow your focus.  Your research question should also be one that can be measured and/or tested.  Go back and re-read the lecture on Research Topic to test your ideas before submitting them.

 

Note:  Now is the time to begin searching for sources on your research topics (research that has already been done on the subject).  Review How to Find Stuff for assistance.  This is the best way to be informed and to be able to focus your research question.  Also, your assignment next week will be a literature review, so be sure to begin an Annotated Bibliography for your own use.

 

See the rubric in the Discussion section for point values.  The sooner you post your original answer, the more points you get.  The deadline for all responses is Sunday at midnight.

Week 5


 

Reread "The Author's Opinion:  Clarity and Restraint" beginning on p. 17 of your text

 

 

Lecture:  Parts of a Research Paper

Reading:

APA Manual: Chapter 6 (p. 169-189)

Phillips:  Chapter 3 "Reading Research" (pp. 30-45)

 

Assignment 5

 

Write and submit a literature review of at least 6 articles based on your research topic. (2000 words)  Do not use the articles from last week unless they are integral to your topic.  Six is the minimum, but you should use all that inform your topic.  Use the "Discovery @ Tarleton" search box from the Tarleton library page (www.tarleton.edu/library), using key words for a good place to begin.  Refer to the "Literature Review" section of this weeks' lecture for additional information on how to write a literature review.

 

Use this Research Proposal Template.  This is the template for you to use for your final research proposal, but for this assignment, you can just delete any unnecessary portions.  However, don't use "Literature Review" as your running head or title.  Use the title of your paper. 

 

Before submitting this assignment, I will also be asking you to submit your papers through Turnitin.  Although I believe all of you to be persons of integrity, checking your writing this way helps you to know what text you may be using that should be cited. 

 

Turnitin Instructions

 

After reviewing the Turnitin report, submit your paper in Word document form.  Name the file Assignment5_YourName and submit by the deadline on Sunday at midnight.

 

Discussion 5: 

 

Choose one of your two research topics from last week.  Give your research project a title.  Post your refined research question and rationale (hopefully, you received some feedback from last week's discussion).  Tell which type of research your topic would require and why.  Explain briefly your method of data collection.  In responding to others' posts, critique by using your knowledge of different research types and what is required of each type to answer the research question.  Read this information about Critiques before posting.  Remember that only useful responses will receive credit.  "That's a great topic . . . " posts, although encouraging, will not be counted towards your grade.

 

See the rubric in the Discussion section for point values.  The sooner you post your original answer, the more points you get.  The deadline for all responses is Sunday at midnight.

 

Week 6


 

No lecture this week.

 

Depending upon your specific research type,

refer to your Phillips text for guidelines in constructing your research proposal.

 

As you read, continue constructing your Glossary of Research Terminology,

which you will turn in next week as Assignment 7

Reading:

Phillips, Chapter 2, “The Research Study,” (pp. 16-29)

 

Assignment 6

 

Research proposal first draft (3000 words)

Use this Research Proposal Template.

Note:  'First draft' does not imply that it should be incomplete or lack proper formatting.  It just means that you will have one more opportunity to revise before receiving a final grade. 

 

Before submitting this assignment, please submit your papers through Turnitin once more. 

 

Turnitin Instructions

 

After reviewing the Turnitin report, submit your paper by the deadline on Sunday at midnight.  I will read through your papers and give some general feedback.  However, I will not give you a grade on your proposal until you submit the revised version at the end of Week 8.

 

Discussion 6: 

 

Post your literature review in the discussion forum.  Your grade this week will be based upon your Critiques of your classmates' lit reviews.  Choose at least three (this is the minimum for your grade, but more feedback is welcome and appreciated) to critique.  The best suggestions  are those that actually cause your classmates to change something!

 

See the rubric in the Discussion section for point values.  The sooner you post your original answer, the more points you get.  The deadline for all responses is Sunday at midnight.

 

Week 7
