The Development of Reading Comprehension in First Grade Children.
Crowell, Doris C.; Au, Kathryn
Written responses to comprehension exercises related to basal reading materials were collected from 23 first graders and rated on a scale extending from no comprehension to application or extension of information beyond the story. Results indicated that most first graders in the group were able to answer detail questions but were unable to integrate and extend ideas from a story. Even the best students in the class only occasionally answered correctly at the more difficult levels. Results are interpreted as indicating that the development of reading comprehension cannot be separated from the development of more general thinking and problem-solving skills. (Author/AA)
