Summary
  • "This study is aimed at identifying the strategies employed by five teachers in a Victorian primary school for teaching reading comprehension to students with English as a second or other language. This study was initially undertaken as a means of contributing towards the knowledge base of teachers in Maldivian schools about the effective strategies for creating an effective pedagogical transaction when teaching reading comprehension to students in the schools of the Maldives. Hence, the teachers selected for the study were from a Victorian primary school setting, with a large number of students from language backgrounds other than English. There is a large body of research regarding the teaching of English reading comprehension, yet limited body of research reagarding teaching English reading comprehension to students with English as a second or other language. Therefore, the central question of this study is: What strategies do the teachers employ in order to create an effective pedagogical transaction when teaching English reading comprehension to students with English as a second or other language?
  • "This study used a qualitative ethnographic case study method approach, with data collection through a semi-structured interview and observation of teachers' reading classes. The data were analysed using a content analysis framework and presented as descriptive results in a thematic structure relating to the actual research questions, purpose of the study and review of the literature. The findings indicated that a variety of strategies were used by the teachers in teaching reading comprehension such as: modelling reading, reading aloud, vocabulary teaching, and careful introduction of new texts. The teacher conducted the lessons in a student-centred manner in order to motivate the students and maxmise student success. The teachers also noted that lack of prior knowledge about English language and texts as well as cultural factors were a barrier to teaching reading comprehension, while the keenness and interest of the students was a support. The whole school approach to pedagogy and use of the Early Years Literacy Program was also considered to be a support for teaching reading comprehension." -- Abstract.
