Reading with Understanding: A Global Expectation
Shea, Mary; Ceprano, Maria
Journal of Inquiry and Action in Education, v9 n1 p48-68 2017
This article outlines the complexity of reading with understanding, what is required for full and deep comprehension, the state of affairs with regard to reading comprehension in developed countries, possible etiologies for low performances, and suggestions for instruction in specific skills and strategies to improve students' demonstrated achievement in daily lessons as well as on global assessments. Recognizing the commonality of this concern among nations, a need to examine universally accepted tenets for successful reading comprehension as well as local etiologies that impede it becomes increasingly important. Such tenets are skills and strategies that address all of Irwin's micro and macro aspects of reading for understanding as well as Bloom's revised taxonomy for higher-level thinking.
