Abstract

A reading comprehension study using Discis Books and below grade level sixth graae readers at Harmony Middle School Farmington, Iowa, testing positive as kinesthetic learners, was carried out in a nine week time period. The study's participants completed a learning styles inventory and a comprehension reading inventory. Students were then randomly divided into experimental and control groups. The control group participated in classroom instruction and independent silent reading. The experimental group participated in classroom instruction and computer­ assisted instruction. A post comprehension inventory was administered.

Data were collected to determine if kinesthetic learners improved reading comprehension through the use of computer-assisted instruction in addition to regular guided reading instruction. The results indicated that kinesthetic learners using Disc1s Books did improve reading comprehension.
