Combining Theories and Practice to Improve Reading Teaching Quality

In order to improve the quality of Taiwanese reading classes, NTNU held a Forum on Theories and Practice for Teaching Reading. 30 papers were published, including outcomes of researches conducted by university professors and teaching examples presented by elementary and middle school teachers. The forum had also chosen the winning work for this year’s Competition of Question Formulation for National Reading Evaluation. In the Progress in International Reading Literary Study (PIRLS), Taiwan ranked 22nd out of 45 countries. Professor Wang Kai-Fu remarked we needed to help students’ abilities to analyze, infer and integrate by diversifying reading tests.
