In this article, the writer identifies the problem of reading comprehension at the third grade level for this action research study. The particular issue of vocabulary has been selected to further focus this study. The writer discusses that students at the third grade level appear to lag in their acquisition of vocabulary, which affects their reading comprehension at this level. The writer makes use of the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT) scores for 2004-2005 and 2005-2006 as historical proof used to identify this problem.
From the Paper:"The State of Georgia requires all third grade students to take the ITBS at the end of the school year. The ITBS is also required at the end of the fifth and eighth grade school years (Denton, 1999, p. 5). In Spring 2005, 92% of all third grade students met or exceeded the standards set by the state of Georgia for reading. This result was an increase of two percentage points over the previous year. However, in Spring 2006, only 82% of all third grade students in Georgia met or exceeded the state standard for reading."
