Open Access Graduate Research Paper

Abstract

There is a general concern about the reading and thinking abilities of today's youth. Of special concern are students' abilities to make inferences about what they read. Recent data show that students' basic reading skills have generally improved or have remained stable during the 1970s, but the inferential comprehension of 13- and 17-year-olds has dropped. This, study focuses on nonliteral comprehension. Specifically, this study describes how researchers have defined nonliteral comprehension and ways the nonliteral comprehension of children might be improved.
