Effective modeling and teaching of reading strategies to secondary content area teachers
This Capstone examines research on how to train secondary teachers to use reading comprehension strategies in their content area classrooms, with the goal being to increase students' reading comprehension. It uses the four-step process of explicit instruction to train teachers in the use of before reading, during reading and after reading strategies. The teachers in turn used the same process to teach their students how to use the strategies with their textbooks. The appendix includes master copies of five before reading strategies, nine during reading strategies, and three after reading strategies for classroom use. It also includes some helpful tools for teacher training.
