dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to determine whether the use of a mnemonic map would positively affect the reading comprehension achievement of students in a selected eighth grade classroom. The Gates-MacGinitie Reading Test was the measurement used for this study. To examine the effectiveness of the mnemonic map on reading comprehension, this study utilized the pre-test/post-test quasi-experimental design. The treatment, use of the mnemonic map “SUPER-G,” took place for a one month period of time. No significant improvement was observed based on the pre- and post-test results; therefore, the hypothesis was rejected. Future research is recommended using a one-on-one instructional approach with a sample of students who are all at the same educational performance level.en_US
