Reading Strategy Use of Low- and High-Proficiency Learners and the Effect of Reading Instruction

Prichard, Caleb 岡山大学言語教育センター
抄録
Research suggests that reading strategy usage is influential on L2 reading proficiency. Considering this, the LEC English Department decided to examine students’ reading strategies as a part of its much larger curricular review. The results support existing research showing that more-proficient readers use somewhat more varied strategy usage. Posttest results reveal that a course on reading skills led to some minimal improvements in top-down reading strategies. Implications are discussed.
