Who's Got Your Back? Research Supporting Reading Comprehension and Instruction (November, 2015)
WSRA Middle Level Literacy & High School Literacy Committee conducted a survey of reading comprehension instruction and practice from August to October 2014. This reading comprehension survey addressed issues in both literacy and content classes. It was sent to teachers and administrators throughout Wisconsin’s 12 CESA regions; 400 teachers, reading specialist and administrators responded to 17 questions. The purpose of the survey was to gather information to identify perceptions and practices relating to reading comprehension and instruction in all disciplines, grades 612. Feedback from Wisconsin stakeholders identified trends in comprehension instruction and revealed professional development needs.
Using key information from the survey the two committees located research, presented at WSRA 2015 convention session, as well as compiled this annotated works cited document. The committees continue to study the survey results and develop further professional development opportunities for Wisconsin educators. Click here to read more.
