I'm taking a class, and I need to choose a topic for a research paper. I need to choose a problem or issue we have as teachers. Here are some ideas... No Child Left Behind (I just went to a hearing for the renewal of NCLB and that was interesting) Homework in primary grades (I'm pondering this for next year) Gifted Clustering (our school is starting this next year) Phonics vs. Whole Language, balanced literacy I also have another class... Educational Research... I also need to choose a topic that I can collect data on... full fledged research proposal style. I'm thinking... Comprehension strategies Phonics vs. Whole language (again) (I'm not sure how we are expected to collect data in the summer, I need to ask) Maybe readers workshop vs. basal Decoding strategies Any ideas you could add, or topics you think might be better to look into? Thanks!
