Though my start was a little rocky, I feel like I've finally got a handle on the direction of my research topic. I completed data collection on how TMS reading scores compare to other schools though posted WyCas results, as well as how well we have done over the past three years on the district's Terra Nova test.

I used these findings as part of the teacher survey I conducted before Christmas break. I asked several questions about teacher feeling on reading at our school, then asked them to review the data, and answer questions on their feelings after seeing the data. I am at the point now of reviewing the questionnaires.

From a quick look, teachers feel they need more training in reading in the content area. They also feel that more reading support, perhaps a class or pull out situation, is needed for low readers. An additional class or pull out program cause problems with scheduling and finding a research supported program that will work for our students. Funding may be available so this is definitely worth looking into.

If this overlaps with your research project, I'd love to find some sources of information on reading programs for middle school students that work.
