A Think-Aloud Protocol from a Critical Reader Reading a Study from "The Journal of Reading."
Crismore, Avon
Using the format of a think-aloud protocol, this paper critically reviews a study from "The Journal of Reading" from the perspective of a not-so-typical high school reading teacher. In this situation the hypothetical secondary school reading teacher came from an English major background, had 15 years experience teaching reading and English, subscribed to several professional journals, attended research sessions at regional conferences, and had had a few graduate courses in statistics. "The Journal of Reading" was chosen in order to gain insight into the nature of a research article in a nonresearch oriented journal. Another reason for the choice was its focus on secondary reading. The high school reading teacher perspective was chosen because reading educators and psychologists who write and submit research articles to the journal, as well as the editors and reviewers for the journal, need to know how a classroom teacher might react to these articles. Finally, the think-aloud technique was chosen because it related to the specific journal article being reviewed. (HOD)
