A prática de leitura em língua inglesa nas escolas de ensino fundamental e médio não se constitui ainda em uma atividade prazerosa e participativa por parte dos alunos. Uma das possibilidades de se manter tal fenômeno é devido às concepções leitoras dos professores que atuam na educação básica, que estão embasadas em paradigmas leitores já ultrapassados que visam ora a habilidade em responder perguntas objetivas de interpretação textual, ora habilidade em pronunciar e ler bem em voz alta, entre outras. Diante dessa problemática, este estudo objetiva investigar quais são as concepções de leitura em Língua Estrangeira de graduandos de Letras e mostrar uma prática leitora alternativa em uma perspectiva discursiva do ato de ler. A relevância de tal pesquisa se justifica pelo fato de que é possível refletir sobre outros paradigmas leitores durante a formação do futuro professor. Para atingir os objetivos propostos recorremos ao referencial teórico da Análise do Discurso da escola francesa, discutindo mais especificamente os conceitos de interdiscurso, formação discursiva e formação imaginária. Foi necessário, também, refletir sobre as concepções de leitura que se encontravam explicitadas ou implicitadas nas metodologias de ensino de Língua Estrangeira. A pesquisa de campo foi realizada com terceiranistas de um curso de Letras em uma universidade particular situada no Vale do Paraíba paulistano. Traçamos o perfil desses sujeitos através de um questionário que visava coletar dados pessoais...

A compreensão da leitura de textos fixos em escolares é um tema amplamente conhecido; no entanto, na revisão de literatura não foi localizado um perfil da leitura de textos móveis nessa população, fato que demonstra a relevância deste estudo. O objetivo desta pesquisa foi avaliar a compreensão da leitura de legendas de filmes em escolares de Ensino Fundamental (EF). Participaram deste estudo 60 escolares, sendo 30 de 2ª série e 30 de 4ª série, pareados quanto ao gênero e idade e constituindo o Grupo-Pesquisa (GP); e mais 20 escolares, sendo 10 de 2ª série e 10 de 4ª série, pareados quanto ao gênero e idade e constituindo o Grupo-Controle (GC). Esta pesquisa foi dividida em dois estudos. No Estudo I, buscou-se traçar um perfil da compreensão da leitura de legenda de filmes dos escolares de 2ª e 4ª séries do GP, por meio da análise do nível e habilidades de Leitura de Legenda de Filmes na recontagem de um trecho de filme visto, de forma individual, sem som e com legenda; e também se analisou a recontagem do mesmo trecho de filme visto, de forma individual, sem som e sem legenda pelo GC com o intuito de averiguar a influência do conhecimento prévio do filme na compreensão da leitura. Os resultados indicaram correlação positiva entre o desempenho em compreensão da leitura e o grau de escolaridade no GP...

Esta pesquisa tem o objetivo de investigar o percurso de construção de competências relativas à leitura de um grupo de estudantes de primeiro ano do ensino fundamental, em uma escola pública do município de São Paulo. O conceito em que se baseia não considera a leitura como uma aprendizagem linear, que vai da decodificação da escrita (estabelecimento da relação letra-som) para a compreensão, mas sugere que as duas aprendizagens ocorrem simultaneamente, a depender das experiências de leitura de cada sujeito, mediadas pela ação de leitores mais experientes. A compreensão leitora, num contexto que considera a linguagem como um processo de interação entre sujeitos, é entendida como o diálogo estabelecido pelo leitor, em diferentes níveis e dimensões, refletindo acerca do texto e de suas relações com outros textos e com suas experiências. Desta forma, a leitura é instrumento de formação num sentido amplo, não apenas nas capacidades de decodificação de palavras ou frases, e nem de aquisição de conhecimentos escolares. A leitura crítica implica num diálogo que busca atingir o discurso que se veicula pelo texto. Para tanto, estabeleceu-se como metodologia a pesquisa-ação, na qual foram realizadas Rodas de leitura buscando proporcionar às crianças momentos de efetivo ler...

Thesis (Ed. D.)--University of Rochester. Margaret Warner Graduate School of Education and Human Development, 2012.; Children with dyslexia and/or central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) respond positively to neurofeedback computer-based training (NFB-CBT) that is designed to stimulate brain plasticity. The deficits which occur in children due to CAPD and dyslexia are similar to the deficits that occur in children who are lead poisoned. However, no studies have been done on the efficacy of NFB-CBT on children with reading difficulty and a history of elevated blood-lead levels. This study analyzes the effect of a NFB-CBT program on the reading growth, as measured by New York State English/Language Arts assessment (NYS-ELA). I utilized a retrospective cohort design and joined databases from an urban school district (Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) and English Language Arts (ELA) reading test scores) and a county health department (blood-lead levels). I selected children who had blood-lead levels above 10 µg/dL at ages 1-3 years. The children were dichotomized into two groups on whether they received Fast ForWord, a NFB-CBT intervention. Children were matched on grade, age, blood-lead levels, and baseline DRA score. Key covariates were introduced into ANCOVA to determine the independent association between Fast ForWord dispensation and ELA score. I found that the Fast ForWord children had lower or comparable levels of reading growth than the comparison group as measured by New York State ELA examinations. The findings of this research are inconclusive and indicate that it may be either a true null or a false null study. These findings may indicate a true null study in that it is possible that the NFB-CBT intervention was administered at an age past some therapeutic window for a lead damaged brain...

This study investigates instructors’ perceptions of reading instruction and difficulties among Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) Level 1-3 learners. Statistics Canada reports that 60% of immigrants possess inadequate literacy skills. Newcomers are placed in classes using the Canadian Language Benchmarks but large, mixed-level classes create little opportunity for individualized instruction, leading some clients to demonstrate little change in their reading benchmarks. Data were collected (via demographic questionnaires, semi-structured interviews, teaching plans, and field study notes) to create a case study of five LINC instructors’ perceptions of why some clients do not progress through the LINC reading levels as expected and how their previous experiences relate to those within the LINC program. Qualitative analyses of the data revealed three primary themes: client/instructor background and classroom needs, reading, strategies, methods and challenges, and assessment expectations and progress, each containing a number of subthemes. A comparison between the themes and literature demonstrated six areas for discussion: (a) some clients, specifically refugees, require more time to progress to higher benchmarks; (b) clients’ level of prior education can be indicative of their literacy skills; (c) clients with literacy needs should be separated and placed into literacy-specific classes; (d) evidence-based approaches to reading instruction were not always evident in participants’ responses...

This study sought to determine if participation in a home education learning program would impact the perceived levels of parental self-efficacy of parents/caregivers who participate in the completion of home-learning assignments and increase their levels of home-learning involvement practices. Also, the study examined the relationship between the parental involvement practice of completing interactive home-learning assignments and the reading comprehension achievement of first grade students. ^ A total of 146 students and their parents/caregivers representing a convenience sample of eight first grade classes participated in the study. Four classes (n=74) were selected as the experimental group and four classes (n=72) served as the control group. There were 72 girls in the sample and 74 boys and the median age was 6 years 6 months. ^ The study employed a quasi-experimental research design utilizing eight existing first grade classes. It examined the effects of a home-learning support intervention program on the perceived efficacy levels of the participating parents/caregivers, as measured by the Parent Perceptions of Parent Efficacy Scale (Hoover-Dempsey, Bassler, & Brissie, 1992) administered on a pre/post basis. The amount and type of parent involvement in the completion of home assignments was determined by means of a locally developed instrument...

Students with emotional and/or behavioral disorders (EBD)present considerable academic challenges along with emotional and/or behavioral problems. In terms of reading, these students typically perform one-to-two years below grade level (Kauffman, 2001). Given the strong correlation between reading failure and school failure and overall success (Scott & Shearer-Lingo, 2002), finding effective approaches to reading instruction is imperative for these students (Staubitz, Cartledge, Yurick, & Lo, 2005). ^ This study used an alternating treatments design to comparethe effects of three conditions on the reading fluency, errors, and comprehension of four, sixth-grade students with EBD who were struggling readers. Specifically, the following were compared: (a) Repeated readings in which participants repeatedly read a passage of about 100-150 words, three times, (b) Non-repeated readings in which participants sequentially read an original passage of about 100-150 words once, and (c) Equivalent non-repeated readings in which participants sequentially read a passage of about 300-450 words, equivalent to the number of words in the repeated readings condition. Also examined were the effects of the three repeated readings practice trials per sessions on reading fluency and errors. The reading passage difficulty and length established prior to commencing were used for all participants throughout the standard phase. During the enhanced phase...

We have constructed reading frames for the HIV-1 YU-2 minor proteins Vpr, Vpu, Vif and Nef that are codon-optimized for high-level expression in mammalian cells. We show that, in the absence of the Rev/Rev-response element system, these codon-optimized reading frames result in greatly increased levels of expression of the corresponding proteins in cell culture systems when compared with the native reading frame. Northern blot analysis shows that the increase in expression found with the codon-optimized reading frames is largely owing to increased steady-state mRNA levels.; D. S. Anson and K. R.

This research investigates whether there is any significant difference between the predictive power of vocabulary breadth and the reading subtests of IELTS and TOEFL. Iranian EFL participants (223) answered Vocabulary Levels Test (VLT), sample IELTS and TOEFL reading subtests. Linear regression analysis results show that VLT provides a significant amount of prediction on IELTS and TOEFL reading subtest, R2 = 0.274, 0.298, respectively. The results for the participants with different levels of vocabulary knowledge, based on VLT percentile scores, show that, for low group, VLT provides 0.123% prediction for IELTS reading subtest and nothing for TOEFL reading subtest. For middle group, VLT provides no prediction on IELTS and TOEFL reading subtest. For high group, the amount of prediction provided on IELTS reading subtest is 0.130 and that on TOEFL is 0.209. Also, analysis was conducted to determine the most related variable to VLT. The results show that TOEFL reading subtest is more associated with vocabulary breadth than IELTS. The study discusses a few implications.

The purpose of this study was to aid in understanding the relationship between current Reading report card grading practices and standards-based state standardized testing results in Reading and factors associated with the alignment of this relationship. Report card and Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FLAT) data for 2004 were collected for 1064 third grade students in nine schools of one feeder pattern in Florida's Miami-Dade County Public Schools. A Third Grade Teacher Questionnaire was administered to 48 Reading teachers. The questionnaire contained items relating to teachers' education, teaching experience, grading practices, and beliefs about the FCAT, instructional Reading activities, methods, and materials. ^ Findings of this study support a strong relationship between report card grades and FCAT Reading achievement levels. However, individual school correlational analysis showed significant differences among schools' alignment measures. Higher teacher alignment between grades and FCAT levels was associated with teachers spending more time on individualized methods of Reading instruction and to teachers feeling there was not enough time to teach and help individual students. Lower teacher alignment of grades and achievement levels was associated with teachers taking homework into account in the final Reading grade. Teacher alignment of grades and achievement levels was not associated with teacher beliefs concerning the FCAT...

Based on analysis of reading performance data from 475 third-graders in Peru, this study makes recommendations on improving reading tests, choice of reading standards, and how to present the results at the school and individual levels. The paper reviews the literature on using reading skills measurement in the early grades to guide policymaking, strengthen accountability, and improve education quality. It uses data generated from the same students using two common approaches to measuring reading skills: an individually-administered oral fluency test, and a group-administered written comprehension test designed by the Ministry of Education for the 2006 universal standard test of second grade reading comprehension. These two approaches have sometimes been presented as competing alternatives, but the paper shows that it is better if they are used together, as complements. Based on psychometric analysis, the paper shows that both the oral and written tests adequately measured students' reading abilities. The results show that reading fluency and comprehension are correlated: fluent readers are more likely to understand what they read than non-fluent readers. The strength of the fluency-comprehension relationship depends on the level of fluency...

In most major international assessments (e.g., Programme for International Student Assessment-Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development [PISAOECD], and Progress in International Reading Literacy Study -International Evaluation of Educational Achievement [PIRLS-IEA]) children's reading skills are not assessed before fourth grade. For students who are poor readers, it is often too late to carry out efficient and effective remedial instruction. Indeed, to be efficient, remedial instruction should be conducted as early as possible. In addition, most major assessments are only composed of reading comprehension tasks, and do not take into account the level of word reading fluency (including accuracy and speed) and listening comprehension. However, research suggests that reading comprehension is associated with capacity in these complementary tasks. A large-scale reading assessment was conducted in Gambia with 1,200 first, second, and third graders (randomly selected from 40 schools) who were learning to read in English. Three analyses were carried out. The first involved a comparison within the group...

A class of twenty-two grade one children was tested to determine their reading levels using the Stanford Diagnostic Reading Achievement Test. Based on these results and teacher input the students were paired according to reading ability. The students ages ranged from six years four months to seven years four months at the commencement of the study. Eleven children were assigned to the language experience group and their partners became the text group. Each member of the language experience group generated a list of eight to be learned words. The treatment consisted of exposing the student to a given word three times per session for ten sessions, over a period of five days. The dependent variables consisted of word identification speed, word identification accuracy, and word recognition accuracy. Each member of the text group followed the same procedure using his/her partner's list of words. Upon completion of this training, the entire process was repeated with members of the text group from the first part becoming members of the language experience group and vice versa. The results suggest that generally speaking language experience words are identified faster than text words but that there is no difference in the rate at which these words are learned. Language experience words may be identified faster because the auditory-semantic information is more readily available in them than in text words. The rate of learning in both types of words...

Compared to research on English as a First Language (EL1) reading comprehension, there is a dearth of studies investigating English as a Second Language (ESL) reading comprehension. This dissertation reports findings from two studies which examined the cognitive processes underlying English reading comprehension in Chinese ESL students. Two-hundred and forty six Grade 8 students in an English immersion program in a junior middle school in China were administered a battery of reading-related and reading comprehension tests. The first study investigated the cognitive predictors of English reading comprehension in these students. It tested whether the Simple View of Reading model (Gough & Tunmer, 1986) applied to Chinese ESL students and whether the effects of breadth and depth of vocabulary contributed to different levels of reading comprehension. The results showed that the Simple View of Reading model did not predict Chinese English-immersion students’ reading comprehension well. Vocabulary as well as inference and strategy added further variance to the general understanding of text. Vocabulary breadth and depth explained unique variance in reading comprehension, with vocabulary breadth contributing more to general understanding of text and vocabulary depth to deep processing of text. The second study explored characteristics of reading comprehension difficulties among Chinese English-immersion students. Three groups of comprehenders matched on age...

Until recently, the majority of research in the area of English phonological awareness has centered on segmental phonology as predictors of reading. Current research, however, has expanded the concept of phonological awareness to include prosodic sensitivity⎯the awareness of suprasegmental information. The present study explores the role of five segmental and suprasegmental levels of English phonological awareness as predictors of individual differences in word reading in Korean children learning English. 104 native Hangul speaking children in Grade 3 were assessed on English levels of stress, syllable, rime, simple phoneme, and consonant cluster awareness, as well as, English and Hangul word reading. Hierarchical regression models indicated that awareness of syllables, onset/rime units, and phonemes within consonant clusters were uniquely predictive of individual differences in L2 English word reading after accounting for cognitive ability, English background variables, and L1 word reading. Awareness of stress-timed patterns contributed to common variance in English and Hangul word reading, but was not uniquely predictive in final regression models. No level of phonological awareness was predictive of Hangul word reading. Results support the notion that segmental phonological elements not present in L1 may be predictive of individual differences in L2 word reading. Furthermore...

This study examined the relationship of deaf students' performance on standardized entrance exams and their academic successes at both the National Technical Institute for the Deaf and at Rochester Institute of Technology. For the purpose of this study, academic success was defined as completion of degree program. The results showed that higher reading levels at entry to college were associated with successful degree completion at the AAS and BS degree levels and students who graduated with these degrees had significantly higher reading levels compared to students who did not complete a degree. Eighty four percent of the students with a 12thgrade reading range earned a BS or a BFA degree. Seventy percent of the students who scored a 10thor 11th grade reading range earned a BS or a BFA degree. Forty-two percent of the students with a 7.5 grade reading range or below earned a BS or a BFA degree.
