Reading Matters: Framing and Metacognition with Thai Postgraduate Students
Bell, Joyce
Reading Matrix: An International Online Journal, v11 n2 p102-115 Apr 2011
Reading is a critical skill for postgraduate students--effective reading, reading comprehension, and awareness of varying interpretations contribute to students' greater progress in their academic fields (Anderson, 1999). Many students arrive at their Australian university with a mismatch of expectations and skills. This study examined reading practices as a holistic, multi-dimensional phenomenon, exploring students' reading practices between their first and third semesters at an Australian university. The overall aim of this part of the research was to develop a better understanding of and the changes in reading practices of Thai postgraduate students, in particular the intertextual and extratextual framing used, and the extent of their self-knowledge.
