Rafferty, Ellen; Collins, James T.; Barnard, Erlin Susanti; Hiple, David
The selection of reading texts for second language learners of Indonesian for this volume were based on the desire to provide level-appropriate material, to reflect the diversity of contemporary Indonesian society, and to pique the interest of university students. Included materials are from government publications, Jakarta newspapers, provincial newspapers, news magazines, sensational magazines, women's magazines, popular and serious literature as well as personal letters, postcards, memos, and invitations. Although students will learn about Indonesian culture from these readings, the primary objective of this volume is to improve the students' reading proficiency by teaching strategies for reading in a second language. Thus the goal of this volume is to develop independent readers of Indonesian. Student-centered activities are broken up by periodic classroom checks to ensure that all groups are understanding the exercises. The lessons are designed to be completed in class; only the homework exercises are to be completed outside the classroom. The lessons are presented in order of increasing difficulty. The lessons are based on schema Theory which teaches top-down reading strategies, demanding spontaneous interaction between the reader and the text. A more indepth discussion of this theory is provided. The reading packet contains photocopies of several types of authentic written or printed materials the learner of Indonesian might encounter in everyday life in Indonesia, such as handwritten letters, advertisements, press articles, maps, and official notices.
