Dr. Wendy Miner, Faculty Mentor

This research investigated the impact a specific reading strategy, the SQ4R, had on the level of student comprehension after reading an assigned expository text. The instruction of the strategy took place during fourth-grade science classes. The SQ4R was chosen as the retelling strategy. The students practiced as a whole class, and then they used the strategy in pairs and individually. A rubric was created for the SQ4R strategy, and student work was evaluated. Short term comprehension was examined by looking at SQ4R scores and the unit tests of each student. Long term comprehension was examined by looking at SQ4R scores and individual DRA scores.
