Data collection and write up – conduct an interview with at least one school principal. There is no expectation of conducting more than 2-3 maximum. Indeed it is recommended project members do not conduct more than this number. Select the principal(s) according to the sampling guidance provided here – and use the agreed interview protocol (available at same link).
Write up a report of the interview, with the work setting out the data against each of the four headings. This does not need to be long, but should be a minimum of 1000 words (500 words per question). However, you may want to write considerably more to do your interview justice. Place this report in the Dropbox.
Note 1 – if you have presented this material in a conference, using the format of the 4 questions, then your conference paper can be used for this activity – but please make sure the format is clearly linked to the 4 questions.
Note 2 – this is one report per ‘group’, ie if you work in a group of 2-3 then only one report is required.
Note 3 – please feel free to write more than the minimum – and if you have an interview transcript please feel free to add this to the Dropbox (clearly labelled).
