Essential Considerations for Developing Basic Reading Reading Comprehension Skills
Robert J. Tierney
ABSTRACT: This article addresses the issues involved in helping students learn from text for themselves.The crucial question examined is: can students be taught or made aware of knowledge, skills and strategies which will transfer to their reading of passages not used in school lessons? The author suggests that at the heart of the enterprise is the development of self-monitoring abilities. He proceeds to define what and how self-regulatory abilities might be developed.Based upon a number of recent training studies, he offers five principles; explicitness,relevance, student as informant, self-regulation, and application.
