Meaning in Reading Instruction
Ediger, Marlow
Reading Improvement, v44 n4 p217-220 Win 2007
Students are challenged to pass mandated tests in grades three through eight and the exit test on the secondary school level in order to be promoted to the next higher grade level or to receive a high school diploma. Failure is certainly a negative experience. It behooves reading teachers to assist learners to attach meaning to what is being learned in each lesson and unit of study. Meaningful learnings provide building blocks for the ensuing achievable objectives of instruction. Understandings then need to be developed for the learner to benefit sequentially from ongoing experiences. What might the teacher do to facilitate meaning in the reading curriculum?
