Reading comprehension; Reading comprehension--Study and teaching
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of compare/contrast and cause/effect text structure instruction on fifth grade readersâ€™ comprehension of expository text. Three fifth grade students participated in this eight-week study. During the study, the participants met with the researcher thirty minutes a day, five times a week for eight weeks. The focus of the intervention was the compare and contrast and cause and effect text structures. The students learned about the specific text structures by reading leveled passages, identifying target words, and completing a graphic organizer. The results suggested that the participantsâ€™ demonstrated growth in expository reading comprehension and knowledge of compare and contrast and cause and effect text structures, but not statistically significantly.
