They analyzed data obtained from Phil-IRI in the past three years and focused on how teachers implemented reading instruction in multigrade settings. The researchers investigated the interventions they employed. Results revealed that parental involvement played a critical role in reading instruction. Teachers espoused varied reading strategies and focused on material selection, integration, and contextualization. Formative strategies, home visitations, and interventions that involved parents were implemented.
