Journal on English Language Teaching, v4 n2 p8-17 Apr-Jun 2014
This paper seeks to identify the online reading strategies employed by students in a Philippine Public High School. In particular, the study attempts to answer the following questions: (1) What are the online reading strategies used by the respondents (i.e., global, problem-solving, and support)?; (2) What is the frequency of use of the online reading strategies of the respondents?; and (3) What are the implications of the study's findings for English language teaching and learning? By means of the adapted Survey of Reading Strategies (SORS) by Sheorey and Mokhtari (2001), data were obtained from 100 readers of a public high school in Quezon City, the Philippines. The analysis of the results revealed that problemsolving strategies were the most frequently used online reading strategies, followed by global reading strategies and support reading strategies. Finally, the results furnish a pedagogical perspective on how online reading strategies can impact second-language or L2 teaching and learning.
