Hello! I recently began a practicum in a primary school for children ages 3-6. Most of these children have developmental delays in addition to speech/language goals. My graduate program requires us to complete a single-subject research design project and I need some help thinking of ideas! I would like to avoid doing a project on articulation if possible unless someone has a great idea, but does anyone have any good ideas on what I could research? I need to come up with a research question/statement by next week. Thanks!
greenman210 posted a topic in Coursework, Advising, and ExamsHi everyone I started my masters and my advisor is a young assistant professor. When I contacted her to before application, she said that she had a project while when I came here (another country), she said that we have to find a topic. The problem is she is new to the field and does not help me at all. She expects me to go and find a topic myself. I tried to have meetings at first regularly, but after a couple of meeting that I noticed she does not give a me helpful feedback I stopped. It has been a more than a month now that I havent talked to her. Today I prepared a table of previous studies and wanted her to take a look at it and then we can have a meeting next day, yet she refused to read it and told me to find a hypothesis and write about it and show her the results. Guys, I am not sure that if I am a lazy student, or she really does not do her job as an advisor... Please help me to figure this out.
So finally got what I hope will turn into something good. One of my undergrad professors who has been contacting me about a possible research project that involves restoration of meadowlands in CA was interested in me as I'm going into soil science. Unfortunately didn't get accepted into the first project he had going, which involved almond trees, but this one seems more promising since one of the students he hoped would join rejected it for another offer. However I was not near his second choice or directly competing with anyone else. In the meantime, he invited me to tour his lab, meet the lab members, and discuss the project with him later this week. He said it was meant to be a low stress thing and not involve a formal interview. Since this might be my only chance of going to grad school even at my safety school, I could use some advice since I want to make the best impression and show my enthusiasm for the project so that I can get my foot in the door.
I've been in a lab for 18 months. I have some findings, but really can't develop a story around it. I'm working on the function of a novel gene product - can't seem to find any "important" function yet. I have another project in the lab that I am working on with someone else. I have no publications. I have presented my work, however. I was thinking on waiting for another six months and see how it goes before talking to my advisor about whether to call it quits or not. Has anyone else faced a similar situation?
