  • Abstract

    The aim of the study was to investigate, over a time period of one and a half years, how the teaching methods and consequent student achievement could be sustainably facilitated by a reading support program (which aims to teach reading strategies) and various trainings for the teachers. Group network meetings were held to support teachers further (instead of just providing them with the program). The group network meetings aimed to encourage collegial reflection and/or the identification with the principles of reading facilitation. For this study, 75 German teachers and their 2117 students from 5th to 7th grade were assigned to one of three treatment groups; within each of these groups the reading support program “Wir werden Textdetektive” (“We will be textdetectives”) was conducted over a period of eight months. In one group condition, three additional afternoon sessions were offered to the teachers to deepen their knowledge in the theoretical foundation of reading facilitation (=reflection), and to allow for an exchange in regards to the application of the program. The other teachers instead participated in six afternoon sessions, where they developed further material (= identification). The effects of the three group conditions were evaluated by student achievement tests, by observing teaching methods and through teacher questionnaires. Measurements took place at four time points. Within all three conditions the strategy transmission during lessons as well as students’ reading achievement improved sustainably.
