Reading Comprehension in Latin America: Difficulties and Possible Interventions
Lions, Séverin; Peña, Marcela
New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, n152 p71-84 Sum 2016
Reading comprehension (RC) is below the international standard in many countries of Latin America (LA). Here we review factors that might be associated with failure in RC of the first language in LA. Then we present interventions reporting beneficial impact on RC in typically developing students from English-speaking countries and discuss their possible applicability in LA. We conclude that research-based pedagogical interventions are currently available to promote RC at school and may be suitable to implement in LA in order to improve RC.
