I am going insane trying to think of a topic to research for my masters thesis. Please help me narrow one of these topics. Here are my ideas: 1.) Writing Workshop: I teach first grade and do a writer's workshop program with my kids where they go through the writing process and ultimately create their own little books. I thought maybe I could research into mini lessons or writing workshop conferences????? I have no clue how to go about testing this in my classroom. 2.) I do individualized spelling with my kids where they each have their own list of words that are taken from their reading skills (as assessed through running records). I thought maybe I could research into the best way to teach spelling? How would I test this in my class to get data???? PLEASE HELP! I will feel so much better once I have a topic nailed down and can start researching in more depth. Any other ideas/opinions would be great!
