in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

However, the role of the federal government is much more limited and constrained in its ability to mandate the use of specific vaccines by individuals, this responsibility rests primarily with state and local officials

"I don't know what the important parts are in the chapter" : demystifying a complex textbook through targeted instruction in reading comprehension by Matthew Barry( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Research Question: To what degree does focused instruction to improve reading comprehension and note taking strategies improve students' ability to understand an advanced placement textbook as measured by multiple choice test scores. Subquestions: (1) Will Think-Alouds, where the teacher pauses and differentiates pertinent from extraneous information and verbalizes effective reading strategies help students develop effective note taking skills? (2) Will students performing Think-Alouds lead to more effective note taking and improved test scores on unit tests? (3) Will reading comprehension strategies and note taking strategies make students feel more confident with learning information from the textbook? (4) How will students who attend the extra hour and a half weekly sessions compare in attitudinal surveys and formal assessments to AP students who choose not to attend? Research Activities: Context: This intervention was conducted with forty-six 11th grade AP (Advanced Placement) US History students. The intervention was held in my regular classroom but was completed after school in weekly sessions that lasted an hour and a half a piece. All forty-six students who participated attended these meetings for three consecutive weeks. The students were derived from three different sections of my Advanced Placement classes on a volunteer basis. Methods and Data: I quickly realized that while this group of students had decided to challenge themselves by taking an AP course not all of them were ready for the difficult nature of the textbook and high level of reading comprehension that was needed to succeed in the class and on the AP test. I decided to utilize the class's multiple choice tests as an indicator for success in the course and went about creating exercises that would help promote better study strategies and reading comprehension skills. During the hour and a half sessions, students conducted exercises where they analyzed their reading and study strategies and worked in groups to share and learn techniques from their peers. The first activity that students participated in was a study strategy sharing an activity conducted in groups of four where students created a study plan for the upcoming week and shared techniques they utilize with other students. The second and most crucial activity was a process called a think-aloud where students read sections from the textbook in groups of four. They paused every line or so and verbalized their thought process focusing on why information was important or not and connecting the information to other pertinent information. In the regular class session, students took multiple choice tests that were compared to students' past performance as well as the performance of the AP students who chose not to participate in the activity to see if the intervention had a positive effect on test scores. Results: Overall, the intervention proved to be successful on some level given both my main research question and my sub-questions. Overall test scores on the post intervention assessment went down compared to the students' first seven tests, but the scores decreased less than the scores of the students who did not participate in the intervention. The most pronounced success was indicated in the attitudinal survey which showed a widespread increase in confidence levels in tasks associated with reading comprehension, note taking and study skills. Grade Level: 11th grade. Data Collection Methods: Multiple choice tests, observation notes, attitudinal surveys, student work. Curriculum Areas: Advanced Placement United States History. Instructional Approaches: reading comprehension building activities, Peer sharing exercises, goal setting, study strategies
