Indonesian education, PISA scores and 3 reading strategies that work
Exley, Beryl E. (2016) Indonesian education, PISA scores and 3 reading strategies that work. In Sriwijaya University Learning and Education International Conference, 7-9 October 2016, Aryaduta Hotel Palembang, South Sumatra-Indonesia. (In Press)
This presentation introduces me and my engagement with Indonesian contexts of teaching and learning. I then introduce the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) “Programme for International Student Assessment” (PISA), noting the challenges facing Indonesia in this period of reform. Publically acknowledging the challenges is an important step in narrowing the agenda and effecting positive future changes. Based on this information from the PISA data, I introduce three effective reading strategies that can be used in all years of schooling: (i) summarising non-literary texts to get the main detail; (ii) reading figurative language in literary texts; and (iii) actively reading to make meaning from the unwritten ellipses.
