Teaching Metacognitive Strategies to help Second Language Readers in English May 10, 2008
"Metacognition Matters" is a seminal essay authored by a linguist and university professor specialized in English Language Learners (ELL)instruction and methodology. The book provides the reader with new perspectives and fresh, research-based insights into the relationship between metacognition theory and Second Language Reading for English Language Learners.
The study, firmly rooted in measured outcomes of explicit, direct classroom instruction in metacognitive strategies (such as previewing / purpose setting, predicting, drawing from background knowledge, self-questioning, summarizing and applying fix-up strategies) concluded that metacognitive awareness improves English learners' reading comprehension.
A detailed, up-to-date review of second language learning theories, and an analysis of issues related to second language reading and metacognition aspects accompanies the research and constitutes a forte for readers and educators less familiar with the concepts and principles underlying metacognitive training to language readers who may, nevertheless, feel the need to use such instruction to facilitate reading comprehension and advance fluent reading across the board.
In my opinion, the source of information provided by the present volume is indispensable to all those dedicated to improving L 2 teaching and narrowing the gap between non-English speakers and their counterparts: ELL teachers, administrators, tutors, volunteers, etc. who are committed to making data-driven, research-informed decisions about instructional design and implementation in public schools.
