The purpose of the Action Research in the classroom, is to work towards improving the way, we as teachers, deliver content to students. The purpose of this research project is to identify reading strategies that would help students improve their reading comprehension skills in social studies. Reading strategies involve a mix of strategies that occur before, during and after reading. The first phase of the project involves identifying a research question and conducting an initial interview of students. Through this interview I will be able to identify the learning habits, strengths, and areas for growth for my students. Strategies will be implemented as a result of this initial interview. Ongoing data collection will be occur throughout the research project; I hope to determine the strategies that are best connected to improving students reading comprehension skills. This will inform future reading comprehension strategies implemented in social studies class.
