How would I go about determining the specific heat of a metal (like Sodium) that reacts with water?

Use a liquid that does not react with that metal in your caliormeter. For sodium, you could use mineral oil or xylene. Of course, you would need to look up the specific heat of these liquids in order to perform the necessary calculations.
