Application of Meta-Cognitive Strategy Instruction in Listening Comprehension to the Level III Student Teachers
Whitehead, Evangelin
Excellence in Education Journal, v9 n1 p104-119 Win 2020
This study investigated the impact of meta-cognitive strategy instruction on the listening comprehension of level III student-teachers. Sixty-eight student participants were selected whose listening proficiency was at the average to below average level. The selected students were randomly assigned to experimental and control groups. The experimental group (n=34) received the meta-cognitive strategy instruction but the control group (n=34) received no meta-cognitive instruction. Listening comprehension modules of their course books were utilized to test the listening skills of the participants in both groups before and after the treatment. The results of tests revealed that the experimental group significantly outperformed the control group on the post-test. The pedagogical implications of the study are discussed as well.
