Using Questioning Techniques and the Cloze Procedure in a Second Grade Classroom To Increase Reading Comprehension.
Kelty, Carole L.
This practicum program was developed and implemented to increase the reading comprehension of second grade students. The objectives of the program were for students to improve the ability to use context clues by 20%, improve reading comprehension by 15%, identify the 4 types of QAR (Question Answer Relationship) questions by 80%, and write questions scoring at least a 4 on a grading rubric. To improve reading comprehension, students were taught skills using the modified cloze procedure, question answer relationship and self-questioning. To evaluate success, students were given pre/post tests assessing overall reading comprehension, their ability to apply context clues, and their ability to identify question types and a question writing assessment. Three out of four objectives were met with the fourth contributing to the overall success of the program. (Contains 18 references. Appendixes include evaluation instruments, pre- and post-test scores, and modified cloze activities.) (RS)
