Research Paper: Reading Comprehension


Insert a couple of paragraphs or so of introductory material: what rc is, how it is defined, the problem of reading comprehension. Cite textbook-level material.

This paper will address three aspects of reading comprehension: Basic Skills instruction; Text Enhancements; and Self-Questioning (these become your subheadings)

Basic Skills

Discuss 2 or 3 articles in this area (vocabulary, DI, etc.). Could be flush side headings, e.g.:


Vocabulary Instruction

Text Enhancements

Discuss articles in this area (pictures, charts, diagrams, mnemonic pictures)


Self-questioning, self-monitoring strategy instruction here.


Restate findings and provide overall conclusions and discussion.

Alternately, you could do all strategy training in rc, and divide these into sections as appropriate.
