Leslia Gould Mercural

Ms. Mercural and her partners form a study group to learn about the most current and effective ways to teach reading comprehension. Teachers meet with each other to develop reading comprehension strategies and lesson plans for struggling readers in their classrooms, and administer the Basic Reading Inventory to students to assess comprehension. Participants then share their findings with other teachers through the North Middle School computer network and compile a bibliography of literature on reading strategies as a teaching resource.
