I am currently not teaching. I have subbed for four long years and had two very difficult long term positions. I am now taking a year off and working full time in an animal shelter. I am taking courses toward my masters while I work. The class I am taking now is a research class and I need to do actual research in a classroom. I am planning on working with one student on developing a stronger ability to read. I will do this project from now until May. I am hoping to work with a kindergarten student for this project. I have spoken with the teacher, but still need to speak with the principal. My question is what kinds of methods would you use with a 5-6 year old student who is struggling with reading? I need to choose a method and see if the child's reading improves or not throughout the process. I will also be using his or her DIEBELS scores as a baseline and a way to assess whether my method worked or not. Thanks for any help!!
