Data for: Longitudinal effects of teaching strategies on reading outcomes and reading interest in primary school
The study investigated teachers’ teaching strategies longitudinal impact on their students´ reading outcomes and reading interest in primary grades. In the study, 220 Estonian primary school students and their 12 native language teachers from 12 schools participated. The results revealed that students’ 1st-grade reading outcomes had a positive effect on their 3rd-grade vocabulary and text comprehension results. A structural equation model showed that frequent use of teaching strategies had no longitudinal effect on students’ text comprehension but did have a negative effect on their reading interest.
