Abstract: This study employs Knowledge Building pedagogy and Knowledge Forum technol- ogy to advance reading literacies in a third-grade elementary reading class in Taiwan. We hy- pothesized that sustained engagement in idea-centered discussions surrounding reading materi- als would lead to higher levels of reading comprehension (i.e., interpretation, and integration). Using a quasi-experiment design, we collected: (a) students' online Knowledge Building be- haviors, (b) group reading discussions, and (c) students' reading comprehension assessment. Our findings reveal that the experimental group (Knowledge Building) outperformed the con- trol group (direct instruction) on the comprehension assessment. Additionally, we found that the Knowledge Building intervention supported the development of students' higher-level read- ing comprehension.
