This guide presents a classroom problem solving model designed to help teachers conduct their own classroom research. It suggests developing a procedure for identifying the instructional problems influencing reading achievement. The model is presented in steps that can be used independently or in concert with other steps. Practice activities are presented to reinforce elements of each step. The steps in the model are: (1) identifying the instructional problem, including formulating and evaluating the questions to be answered; (2) determining the hypothesis to be tested; (3) carefully defining and recording relevant characteristics of students or subjects; (4) listing types of sampling procedures; (5) selecting a study design; (6) outlining and listing all procedures to be employed in the study; (7) collecting, processing and interpreting the data; and (8) determining whether the hypothesis was supported or not and planning for the next course of action. Extensive tables, statistical equations, sample studies, and a glossary are appended. (MKM)
