Annotated Research: Reading Strategies

Question: What is the effect of training in reading strategies when children have difficulty in reading something?

Answer: “Found that comprehension performance of fourth and fifth graders was improved” [by training in how to use reading strategies]. NM Delaney. 1984. P. 207.

Comment: Where do you find the strategies? Teachers should analyze what they do when they encounter difficulty in reading and share their strategies with the students. Various reading strategies appear often in the journals of the NCTE and IRA. RayS.
