Abstract

GOMES, Maria Aparecida Mezzalira  and  BORUCHOVITCH, Evely. Self-regulated learning in reading: positive results of a psychopedagogical intervention. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2011, vol.27, n.3, pp. 291-299. ISSN 0102-3772.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-37722011000300004.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of a pedagogical intervention to improve the reading comprehension of fourth grade students of a public primary school. Two classes of 28 students were randomly assigned to an experimental or control group. The students were assessed during three different moments by means of an informative questionnaire, a Learning Strategies Scale and two cloze tests for reading comprehension. The intervention consisted of seven sessions which included learning strategies instruction, reading strategies instruction, meta-cognition activation, motivational support and study guidance. Results showed improvement in meta-cognition and in reading comprehension in both groups. However, gains were higher and more consistent in the experimental group.

Keywords : self-regulated learning; reading comprehension; learning strategies; reading; meta-cognition; pedagogical intervention.
