FERREIRA, Sandra Patrícia Ataíde and DIAS, Maria da Graça Bompastor Borges. The school and the reading learning process. Psicol. estud. [online]. 2002, vol.7, n.1, pp.39-49. ISSN 1413-7372. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-73722002000100007.
The access to the reading process comes as one of the various challenges to school and, perhaps, as the highly regarded and most claimed one by society. In the present article, what is firstly discussed is the need to propose students reading activities in which they can realise the idea that the meaning of the text to be built depends on the objectives and on the reader's questions, as well as on the nature of the text and its macro and super structure. Besides, as insisted by Solé, it is important and essential those children learn how to use the reading strategies used by the experienced reader, so that they also become efficient and independent readers. Then, carrying on with some empirical evidences, comprehension strategies are dealt with as well as the place they occupy in the reading learning process.
