Bennett, Mari Beth
Voices from the Middle, v11 n1 p31-34 Sep 2003
Describes an informal investigation of students' familiarity with and knowledge of active reading strategies by administering the Metacognitive Awareness of Reading Strategies Inventory. Contends that student responses solidified the importance of helping students become aware of reading strategies. Concludes that the best way to encourage content area instructors to learn reading strategies is to point out the discrepancy between what they teach and what they do. (PM)
