Survey of Poetry Reading Strategy as the Modern Tool to Identify Poetry Reading Strategies
Ebrahimi, Shirin Shafiei; Zainal, Zaidah
Journal of Education and Practice, v7 n19 p95-106 2016
This study examines common strategies that English as a Foreign language (EFL) students employ when reading English poetry. To identify the strategies, a survey was designed for data collection from TESL students. The result shows that students significantly tend to use the strategies that require their creativity to construct new ideas in the meaning making of poetry. Therefore, global strategies are the strategy that they use more than problem solving followed by support strategies. This study is an important issue to consider since reading strategies assist readers to recognize that the reading strategies help them understand poetry more effectively. As a result, it is meaningful to explore reading strategies that are used in reading poetry.
