Overview of research process
In order to answer my Driving Question I had to figure out what was my end goal for my research. This answer became my starting point. I knew that I would need to research different strategies that would engage my students, while still giving them the educational reading boost I wanted them to gain. In my research I was able to find some answers to my Driving Question. I found that a small group intervention, Reading log, in class reading time, and online Learning programs were strategies that fit my end goal for my students. I believe that once my students have time to proceed through these different strategies, they would be ready to take the district used assessment ,the SRI and the SPI.
Small groups is an essential strategy when working with English Language Learners.
The use of technology, is recommended to help English Language Learners learn from a different learning tool.
The Scholastic Reading Inventory, and the Scholastic Phonics Inventory, are used district wide as standardized tests. Both tests offer important information about the overall comprehension, fluency and phonics of every student.
