Prompt 1

Researchers need to be sensitive to labels. Suppose you are studying children with learning disabilities, such as fourth-grade students in Wakefield Elementary School. Write a sentence that captures how you would refer to these children in a way that is sensitive to labels. Complete this sentence. “Participants in this study are . . . .” Then consider what you would do from a Christian perspective if your own special needs child was selected to be part of this study.

Prompt 2

A group of university researchers are conducting a study about the effectiveness of lunchroom vegetables for addressing childhood obesity. The vegetables are grown at the school and prepared by the school chefs for the lunches. Fourth graders are involved in this experiment, and the two classes of fourth graders are assigned to one of two groups. The control group receives a standard portion of vegetables every day for school lunches. The experimental group receives a double portion of vegetables at the lunches. At the beginning of the study and at the end, the children are weighed. A parent of a child in the control group calls, complaining about the small amount of vegetables her child has received for lunch at school. Hearing about the study at the parent-teacher meeting, this parent wants you to explain why her child was not assigned to the group to get more vegetables each day. How would you justify random assignment? What suggestions would you make to this parent about how you plan to give the student more vegetables?
