A. Pose Hypotheses
B. Take Action: Goals, Strategies, and Evaluation



  1. Formulate questions in response to data that has been collected. 
  2. Create a fishbone chart with potential cause/effect relationships.
  3. Create an action plan with specific strategies and evaluation criteria.


If we look again at the Continuous Improvement Model ( Lesson One, Getting Started ), we can see that Act is a crucial step in the process.  Teachers could diligently collect and analyze data, but if they don't act upon it, the time and effort has been wasted.

This lesson focuses on Action -- making hypotheses, setting strategies, and altering instructional methods.
