Co-Shaping Metacognitive Awareness and Developing Listening Comprehension through Process-Based Instruction
Mahdavi, Neda; Miri, Mowla
International Journal of Listening, v33 n1 p53-70 2019
This study examined the effect of metacognitive process-based and product-based instruction on enhancing listening comprehension and metacognitive awareness. Two classes of high-beginner English as a foreign language learners were randomly assigned to two groups: product-based (n = 30) process-based (n = 30). Both before and after eight instructional sessions, listening comprehension and metacognitive awareness were measured. Process-based group, then, followed a pedagogical sequence in each session (Vandergrift, 2004), providing opportunities for dialogue about the listening process and the strategies involved, whereas the product-based group was not engaged in dialogue nor did the group reflect upon listening strategies. Results indicated that the process-based group significantly outperformed the product-based one in terms of gains in listening comprehension and metacognitive awareness. Moreover, the microgenetic analysis of the dialogic interactions of the process-based group presented some evidence showing how the students co-shaped metacognitive awareness. This article concludes with discussing the findings, presenting some pedagogical implications, and sketching out areas for further research.
