Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Reading (Middle school); Reading--Remedial teaching;
This literature review focuses on several strategies good readers use to understand and interpret different types of text, such as fiction, non-fiction, and expository. These strategies are ones that struggling readers are not aware of, or these readers do not have the knowledge and experience to utilize the strategies. Teachers need to provide direct instruction of these strategies, generate models of what they look like, demonstrate what the thought process is behind the strategies, and offer students practice in using them with the idea that students will add them to their repertoire of strategies and use them throughout the learning experience. It is hoped the students then will begin to use these research-based strategies automatically when any text becomes difficult for them to read.
