Ghahari, Shima; Basanjideh, Mahin
Reading Psychology, v38 n2 p125-153 2017
With the advent of learner-centered approaches to language learning and life skills education paradigm in psychology, language classrooms are conceived a fitting educational setting for life skills intervention. This study investigated reading strategies awareness, as a legacy of humanistic psychology and learner-centered movement, of language learners in relation to autonomy, problem solving ability, and reading comprehension achievement. Learning Autonomy Questionnaire, Problem Solving Inventory, Survey of Reading Strategies, and a Reading Comprehension Test Battery were used. Multivariate regression and follow-up SEM analyses showed no significant relationship between SA and autonomy but substantiated its predictive power for problem solving and reading comprehension.
