The study examined the effects of two interventions on improving student reading comprehension. The first intervention was strategy instruction. In this condition, students were taught how to strategically use their knowledge of text structure including making predictions, identification of main characters, identifying the central problem of a story, and identifying the resolution to a problem. Students were taught to note key words and were asked to make story maps for each passage that they read.
