INDONESIAN EDUCATION, PISA SCORES AND 3 READING STRATEGIES THAT WORK

BERYL EXLEY

Abstract


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.
