Daniel Willingham presents: Improving Reading Comprehension
I’ll start by reviewing what researchers know about the mental processes that underlie reading comprehension, and I’ll use that analysis as a lens through which to consider methods of improving reading comprehension. I’ll conclude that (1) leisure reading is helpful, but may not be as helpful as we’d hope; (2) reading comprehension strategy instruction offers a huge advantage, but it’s a one-time boost; (3) background knowledge is likely the most significant aid to comprehension.
