The relationship between reading comprehension skills and self-concept during preadolescence
MetadataShow full item record
This paper is about the relationship between reading comprehension skills and levels of self concept during preadolescence. I refer to Vgotsky's sociocultural theory to establish a preliminary connection and delve further into defining the differences between self-concept, self esteem and self-efficacy. I talk about students' views of their own cognitive abilities, contributing factors to positive self-concept and how some struggling students cope in the classroom. Next is provided a short descriptive list of skills all students should utilize in their academic learning. Finally, I add suggested ideas from author Cris Tovani to provide students with the necessary skills needed for reading comprehension success identified earlier in the paper.
