I am writing to ask if you might be interested in participating in a local area (Mercer County) action research project involving reading comprehension skills instruction.
The research will focus on a graphic organizer technique that teachers can use to teach reading comprehension skills, study skills, and course content. It can be used in mainstream, special needs, and ESL classrooms, from elementary through adult levels. The technique is known as "Textmapping". We expect that teachers who use it will see measurable improvements in student performance on reading comprehension tests.
The purpose of the research is to learn more about what works and what doesn't, and to produce a record of clinical experience, teacher insights, and performance data that will help inform the design and implementation of studies by academic researchers.
The Textmapping Project is a non-profit organization that seeks to contribute to the improvement of reading comprehension skills instruction - to stimulate and encourage research, and to seed an online community where teachers, homeschoolers, and researchers can learn, network, and collaborate.
If you are interested in learning more about participating in this action research project, please:
Please share this information with your colleagues. This letter and attachments are available on the Web, and may be accessed through the following URL: http://www.textmapping.org/researchHub.html
I look forward to hearing from you.
