Sample Action Research Proposal

IMPROVING READING COMPREHENSION
THROUGH THE USE OF HIGHER ORDER THINKING ACTIVITIES

I - Proponent:
                         Noel R. Dauran
                         Master Teacher - I
                         Baya Elementary School
                         Ragay, Camarines Sur

II - Background of the Study:
               The area of focus for my project is improving Reading Comprehension Through the Use of Higher Order Thinking Skill Activities. Without the solid foundation of reading skill the researcher feels the children will be struggle hard throughout their schooling and adult life. By learning the best comprehension strategies and how to best teach  these strategies to the pupils, the researcher hopes to provide the solid foundation needed to succeed . Although the school's NAT result has meet or exceed its expectation, still the researcher has a thought of a way to improve it. In reading class, the grade three pupils scored84%, but the scores dropped in the 4th grade. So the researcher concludes that the pupils score decreases because of the pupils have very poor higher - order thinking skills to increase reading test scores and develop meaningful reading experience to the pupils.

III - Statement of the Problem:
               As the researcher of this research, I have found out that many of my pupils in grade III are able to read fluently, but still have difficulty in answering the "how" and "why" questions. I am hoping that by incorporating higher order thinking skills my pupils would be able to transfer and make connections to reading. This is important in order for a child to be successful. I feel that incorporating reading strategies and showing students how to reflect about what they have read, would improve their reading comprehension and to become life-long learners. I am looking forward to working on this area of concern, and sharing my findings with my co-teachers.

IV- Significance of the Study:
       The study will be deemed important for the proper recognition of the improving Reading Comprehension Through the use of higher - order thinking activities on the academic Performance of the grade III pupils, Likewise, the findings of this research may prove useful to the following, to wit;

This may lead to better enthusiasm and develop good study habit.

                   once, subsequent to a treatment is the instruction of reading strategies . It is important to teach 
                   the strategies  by naming the strategy and how it should be used, modelling trough  think aloud
                   process, group practice, partner practice and independent  use of the strategy.
                                  The second tool used was the Phil-Iri test administered to the pupils in the grade III
                   pupils in the first week of July, 2011. This tool used to determine student growth in reading 
                   comprehension.
                                   The teacher observation checklist was used by the researcher to gather data 
                   throughout the intervention. This tool provides information of changes on how well his pupils
                   understand and use reading comprehension strategies over time.

                   pupils who were selected were enrolled in the third grade class for the school year 2011-2012.

C. Description of Instrument Data and Gathering Form.
                   The Metacomprehension Strategy Index had a total of 25 questions divided into three parts that asked about the strategies pupils used to help them better understand the story. Part I of MSI is consist of statement about the strategies used prior to reading a story, Part II of the MSI consist of statement about the strategies used while reading a story, and the part III of the MSI consist of statement about the strategies used after reading the story.
