    your thoughts? I should probably also include a review of literature at the beginning of my paper when I start it. I have gathered eight articles and I have read two books on coaching that I could probably use. Any other suggestions?

    Update: March 10, 2010
    I have updated my Action Research power point to reflect the new data I received from the February 22nd survey. Now I need some help! What is the next step?

What are your thoughts?

    Category: Literacy Coaching
    Description: Currently I am a member of a Chicago Foundation for Education Study Group focusing on Action Research. My research question (as it currently stands) is "what happens to writing workshop instruction in first grade classrooms when I apply the principles of gradual release of responsibility to my coaching." I am currently at a beginning stage where I am research about my topic, after which I will probably refine my research question. For more information, contact Jennifer Dixon.

    Update: February 20, 2010
    My research question has been changed to: What are the effects of literacy coaching on teacher implementation and confidence with new instructional strategies? I am attaching the power point I created to share my research. I have to give the primary teachers I am working with one more survey and then I will complete the power point.
