ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to examine whether or not generating questions strategy training had any effects on the generating question capability and reading comprehension with reading disabilities.The subjects in this study were children who were within their third and fourth years at two different elementary schools, being at risk of reading disability.The pretest-posttest control group design was employed, by organizing an experimental group and a control group with 12 children each who were respectively selected from the two schools.During a sixth-week period time, the experimental group participated in a 20-session generating question strategy training program that was based on Raphael's QAR(Question Answer Relationship) Program. Each session run 25 minutes, and the control group was just engaged in repeated reading without being exposed to any particular training.After the experimental was completed, the two groups took tests in generating question and reading comprehension.As for data handling, T-est was implemented by using SPSS for Windows 10.0 program.The findings of the study were as follows:1. Regarding the generating question capability of the children with reading disabilities, the experimental group that underwent training in generating question strategy made a statistically significant progress than the control group that didn't.2. Concerning the reading comprehension capability of the children with reading disabilities, the experimental group that were trained in generating question strategy made statistically significant strides than the control group that didn't.The findings of the study suggested that the generating question strategy was one of the effective teaching methods to enhance the generating question skills and reading comprehension of the children with reading disabilities, and that reading comprehension strategy could also be applicable to those types of children.
