This session will summarize research on improving reading comprehension. I'll start by reviewing what psychologists know about the processes behind reading comprehension, and I'll then consider the evidence for teaching students reading comprehension strategies and how they might work, given what we know about comprehension. I'll conclude that these strategies are effective, but are often overemphasized, and I will suggest alternatives to improving comprehension.
