Online Reading Strategy Guidance in a Foreign Language: Five Case Studies in French
Bouvet, Eric; Close, Elizabeth
Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, v29 n1 p7.1-7.19 Jul 2006
This paper reports on an online guided reading program designed and developed by the authors, and implemented in class conditions. The program allows students to read a short story from a computer screen and obtain immediate support, in the form of suggested problem-solving strategies designed to help them overcome the lexical and grammatical difficulties commonly encountered by intermediate language students, at local text level, during the reading process. Based on the analysis of case studies of readers, the chief objective of this study is to gauge the pedagogical relevance of the guided reading program and suggest that it facilitates intermediate language students' first encounters with literary texts.
