Formal Schema Theory and Teaching EFL Reading
Young, Barbara N; Man, Zhou
Online Submission, Tennessee Educational Leadership v32 n3 p14-16 Fall 2005
Inquirers designed and conducted a study investigating whether or not results derived from previous research focusing on teaching and learning English as a native or foreign language would be replicated in a learning environment in which English is taught as a foreign language as in China. Because activation of formal schemata plays an important role in the reading activity of language learning, inquirers are also investigating if activating formal schemata stored in students' minds will facilitate students' reading comprehension.
