In this presentation, the qualitative study proposed is to learn the impact of educator perception on the impact of professional learning communities on student performance will be outlined. This will be followed with a discussion concerning the limitations of this study as well as precautions taken to protect those involved with the study.

Donald Bear, Marcia Invernizzi, Shane Templeton, and Francine Johnston (2008) explain that there are two purposes for word studies.

These steps are very similar to what scholars and professional writers do to write a research paper. Every writer must start by familiarizing themselves with the topic by researching from reliable sources. Professional writers must use reliable sources because it is very important to provide the reader with accurate information.
