What Do Upper-Elementary and Middle School Teachers Know About the Processes of Text Comprehension?
Reading and Writing
Research on teachers’ knowledge of reading comprehension suggests that teachers have and need knowledge that is distinct from what non-teachers know about reading (Phelps, 2009). Building on this idea, we designed the present study from the assumption that to teach reading comprehension in the upper-elementary and middle grades, teachers draw on specialized knowledge of comprehension processes–that is, their knowledge of how readers engage their linguistic, cognitive, and social resources to construct understanding with text.
