  • Abstract

    The project investigated which conditions are important for anchoring and stabilizing effective and well-founded support instruments for reading promotion with a focus on self-regulated and strategy-oriented reading in secondary school. The central aim of the project was to examine and optimize the diagnostic, promotion and professionalization tools used by the participating BiSS-Verbünde (associations) from Schleswig-Holstein and Bavaria in a formative process with regard to their theoretical background, their effectiveness and their implementability. There was constant feedback on the project results to the associations so that they could continue to work with the results and adapt their strategies for the implementation and anchoring of reading promotion if necessary. Results of the project are on the one hand the documentation of such scientifically legitimated tools, an evaluation of the findings and on the other hand the formulation of successful conditions for the implementation of support concepts for reading in teaching and schools.
