Authors: Shegar, Chitra

Series/Report no.: Research Brief;09-004
Abstract: In 2006 and 2007, a School-based Reading Innovation Project was carried out in a neighbourhood primary school with the aim of mapping out the reading instruction programme
in the school, comparing it against international standards, and introducing innovations that would enhance it. The
findings of the project revealed that reading instruction in the selected school lacked some fundamental components of a
goodw reading programme. Implementation of innovation procedures over the 2 years showed that there was an improvement not only in teacher development but also in the
students’ reading and comprehension abilities. The research experience gained at this school can also be utilized in other
Singapore schools seeking to enhance reading instruction.
