Can Reading Strategies be Successfully Taught?
Carrell, Patricia L.
Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, v21 n1 p1-20 1998
Discusses how reading strategies can be successfully taught in second or foreign-language reading instruction, examining research that has been done on reading-strategy training and confronting the issue of how to make reading-strategy instruction appropriately text and context sensitive. Research that emphasizes the five metacognitive elements suggests that such teaching definitely makes a difference in the short term. (SM)
