What are you interested in, lulu? The best advice I was given was to choose something I really cared about and wanted to know more about. Doing a dissertation can be hard work, and unless you're motivated to find the answer to your research question it can be difficult to keep on track.

 

I had a clear idea what I wanted to do, but if I was doing one now I think I'd make a shortlist, and then do a quick literature search to see what existing research is out there because if there is little or no literature for you to review it will be more difficult.

 

What are the hot topics at the moment? What issues do you face in your work that might form the basis of a really useful dissertation?

 

If it helps to know what other subjects people chose, I've done two:-

  • to what extend does children's gender stereotyping of the colours pink and blue affect their participation in creative (craft) activities and
  • are worksheets a suitable teaching resource for pre-school children?

Good luck - I loved doing research and I hope you will too! :1b

I haven't done my BA research modules (yet!!!) but did do a research project for my foundation .

 

I am very interested in parent partnership and people's ideas and attitudes about it so I based my work on a question which escapes me now but was to do with how attitudes differed between parents, FS staff and KS1 staff.

It was very interesting but in fact i collected TOO much data for the size of the project!!!

 

HappyMaz is right you need to think about what you would like to know more about!

 

Good luck x

Hi Dawnevs

 

As a newbie to the forum you may not have spotted our articles (on the home page see 'Articles' listed in the blue navigation bar on the left hand side) so I picked out a few that might give food for thought. They often have a bibliography at the bottom so that can give a good source for future reading.

 

Anyway here goes and hope they help;

 

Nature Deficit Disorder

 

Taking a Risk? The value of risk and challenge in the early years

 

The Multi-sensory Approach

 

Which Came First, the Forest or the School?
