Adolescent Readers' Perceptions of Remedial Reading Classes: A Case Study
Donalson, Kathleen; Halsey, Pamela
Reading Improvement, v44 n4 p221-232 Win 2007
This research explores struggling adolescent readers' perceptions about reading. The eight students featured in this study were enrolled in a mandatory Title I remedial reading class. The purpose of the Title I intervention class was to prepare these middle school eighth graders to successfully pass the state's criterion referenced test. The researchers in this study did not evaluate the intervention strategies used in the class. Rather, the purpose was to conduct case studies to further investigate these adolescent readers. The case studies were used to provide a deeper understanding of the affects of remedial reading programs on adolescent readers. The study was guided by the following questions: How do adolescents in a remedial reading program perceive their reading abilities? How do adolescents perceive remedial reading programs?
