Research Methodology Introduction This segment of the proposed action research will cover the approaches that will be used while conducting the research. Also the effectiveness of the said methodology in relation to answering research questions and addressing the aims of the action research will be highlighted. Revisiting my proposed topic this action research basically seeks to understand what problems are associated with Developmentally Appropriate Practice and how they might affect Childhood Education at different stages of children’s development. The research methodology that fits is qualitative methodology as this action research aims at exploring the concept of Developmentally Appropriate Practice-particularly those problems that are associated with the practice as well as their effect on childhood education at different developmental stages. This methodological approach will help in answering the set research questions through appropriate data collection analysis and interpretation. The data collected will majorly be qualitative data rather than quantitative which challenges of handling very big data. Conclusion Research methodology outlines everything that will be done to conduct the proposed research. This section identified various data collection techniques that will be used to collect both secondary and primary qualitative data. Data analysis will be done so as to help answer research questions and accomplish the pre-identified research aims. Non-probability and purposive sampling designs will be employed.
