The Analysis of the Level of Students' Perception of the Messages in Fictive Texts in Fictional Context
Batur, Zekerya
Reading Improvement, v55 n2 p69-78 Sum 2018
The aim of this study is to investigate the perception levels of the messages of didactic fiction texts in fictive context and the student's perception levels of these messages. 80 students attending the grades of 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th--20 from each grade--are randomly selected as participants. Under the supervision of specialists, six fictive texts all including messages in their last paragraph were determined and delivered to all participants. They were also given 20 minutes to read and make sense of the all six texts and jot down the meanings they attribute to the texts. In order to see if the messages perceived by the students overlap with those included in the texts, the answers of students were evaluated by five specialists in terms of creative writing. The similarities and differences between the messages perceived by the students and the original messages were determined by considering the average points given by five evaluators. It was observed that 4th and 5th grade students are not able to perceive the messages in fictive texts. 6th and 7th grade students, on the other hand, are able to perceive the messages in fictive texts and this contributes to their creative writing skills.
