Literature Review on Reading Strategy Research.
Zhang, Zhicheng
Reading strategies that have been identified and recommended by recent literature can be classified into four categories: cognitive strategies, compensation strategies, memory strategies, and test-taking strategies. Research indicated that the use of appropriate strategies may improve reading comprehension. Research has also suggested that readers could be trained to learn and use reading strategies, which raised the need to incorporate reading strategy instruction into the school curriculum. Reading strategy instruction is making its way into regular classrooms. The integration of reading strategy instruction with cooperative learning has changed the traditional pattern of reading as an individual activity. Group efforts, peer cooperation, and teacher-student interaction become an important part of the new reading strategy instruction approach. Considering the large number of students in a regular reading class, this seems to be a feasible solution. (Contains 32 references.) (RS)
