Nhận thức và thực tiễn của giáo viên về chiến lược dạy đọc hiểu theo nhận thức Bùi Thị Vân Anh Trường Đại học Ngoại ngữ Luận văn ThS ngành: Lý luận và PP giảng dạy tiếng Anh; Mã số: 60 14 10 Người hướng dẫn: M.A. Nguyễn Bàng Năm bảo vệ: 2012 Abstract: The study was conducted to investigate high school teacher‟s attitudes towards and practices in instructing cognitive reading strategies for mainstream students. It specifically explored teachers‟ beliefs about the importance of cognitive reading strategies and the correspondence between such beliefs and their self-reported instruction. Furthermore, the self-reported instruction was compared with actual classroom practice based on which causative factors were aimed to draw out. All the ten teachers of English faculty were called for participation in answering questionnaires, being observed in three lessons for each and three of whom clarifying their instructions in semi-structured interviews. The results revealed that all teachers in the target school found themselves familiar with cognitive reading strategies although the benefit in students‟ autonomy development was not fully recognized. Certain cognitive strategies were evaluated to be more important to teach than others including activating prior knowledge in pre-reading, skimming and scanning in while-reading and summarizing in post-reading. Strategies in pre-reading phase, as a whole, were considered more important than those in the other phases. There was a positive correlation between teachers' beliefs and their self-reported classroom instructions of cognitive reading strategies. The self-reported instruction was also consistent with actual one in the way that those reported to be more frequently instructed still called more teacher‟s attention than the others at classrooms. However, a slight discrepancy arose when the actual frequencies of instructing individual cognitive reading strategies were not as high as their self-reported. With regard to factors influencing instruction, teachers‟ age, qualification and years of experience did not exert significant effects. Some other factors were teacher‟s insufficient beliefs, the constraints of reading texts, and students‟ motivation. The preparation for exams, the time limit and the different requirements from classes of different proficiency levels also acted as other barriers to teachers‟ instruction. Implications were made and some teaching ideas were proposed to enhance the instruction of absent cognitive reading strategies.

Rationale The innovative change in language approaches inclusively affects the teaching and learning of reading comprehension. In reading lessons, rather than traditionally focus on the decoding of words and sentences, teachers are strongly recommended to foster both students‟ interpretive and productive skills, as well as to provide them with instruction on reading strategies. It is proved by over 500 studies in the last twenty five years that reading strategy instruction greatly improves students‟ reading comprehension (Wellingham, 2007, p. 39). In a lesson of reading strategy instruction, teachers guide the use of reading strategies, showing students how to utilize them in order to cope with texts in an unfamiliar language (Eskey, 1988). Helping students develop good reading strategies in particular and language learning strategies in general is considered to be the appreciated characteristics of a good language teacher (Lessard, 1997, p. 3). Research in second language reading instruction in the last decades of the 1990‟s tended to focus on general explanations and descriptions of reading strategies employed by competent and incompetent readers. Less attention was given to the actual implementation of reading strategies instruction from a teaching perspective as well as teachers‟ beliefs of the importance of these strategies (Hua & Kim, 2008). Furthermore, Borg (2003, 2006) explores that significant contributions to understanding the relationship between teachers‟ beliefs and their classroom practices of reading instruction have been primarily made in first language education contexts whereas there has been a little amount of research in the area of second and foreign language (cited in Kuzborska, 2011, p. 103). Chou (2008) also contends this gap results into an unclear picture of teachers‟ beliefs construct in teaching reading in EFL contexts (p. 192). Therefore, undeniably, it is essential to conduct more research on exploring teachers‟ beliefs and their actual instructional practices regarding reading strategies. With the aim to contribute some “meaningful pieces” to the unclear picture, this survey research was carried out on the topic given, namely teacher‟s attitudes towards and practices in cognitive reading strategies instruction. 2. Aims and Objectives of the study The main aim of this study was to explore teacher‟s attitudes towards and practices in instructing cognitive reading strategies for mainstream students at Luong Van Tuy Gifted High School. To be more specific, the primary objectives of the study were set as follows:  To find out beliefs teachers hold about cognitive reading strategies  To investigate to what extent teachers‟ beliefs correspond to their self-reported instructional practices 3.  To examine which cognitive reading strategies teachers actually instruct at classrooms  To reveal factors affecting the teachers‟ instruction of cognitive reading strategies Research questions Based on the theoretical framework proposed, the researcher put forward the following research questions: 1. What beliefs do teachers hold about cognitive reading strategies? 2. To what extent do teachers' beliefs correspond to their self-reported instructional practices? 3. Which cognitive reading strategies do teachers actually instruct at classrooms? 4. What factors affect teachers‟ instructional practice of cognitive reading strategies? 4. Method of the study Because the purpose of the study was to reveal teachers‟ beliefs and the correspondence with their classroom practice, the survey research was adopted in the study with data collection instruments of questionnaires, observations, and interviews. All ten English teachers of the targeted school were asked to express their opinions on the importance and practice of teaching cognitive reading strategies through questionnaires. Later, in order to obtain direct information on actual teaching practices, each teacher was observed in three 45-minute lessons followed by semi-structured interviews. 5. Scope of the study The study was conducted to explore teacher‟s attitudes towards and practices in instructing cognitive reading strategies for mainstream students at a high school named Luong Van Tuy Gifted High School in Ninh Binh Province. Therefore, no intention was made to generalize the findings. 6. Significance of the study The study is strongly hoped to provide teachers in the targeted school with useful insights into the situation of teaching cognitive reading strategies based on which some implications are made for more efficient reading comprehension lessons. Although no generalization is intended, the findings of the study could inform other teachers of the effectiveness of reading strategies instruction on students‟ reading comprehension. 7.

Summary CHAPTER TWO: THE STUDY 2.1.Context of the study The study was conducted at Luong Van Tuy high school, which is situated at the center of Ninh Binh city, Ninh Binh province. As the only specialized high school in the province, it attracts almost all advanced students from the city as well as different districts of Ninh Binh. For the 2010-2011 academic year, the school had over one thousand and two hundred students being grouped in 30 gifted classes, with an average of 30 students per class. There were 10 teachers of English and 100 others in teaching staff. The school has a quite big library with plentiful sources of reference books, magazines and newspapers convenient for all students to make references. Moreover, it has five well-equipped classrooms with projectors, screens, computers, etc. available. In fact, it is considered to be the best school in Ninh Binh in terms of teaching and learning facilities. As for the students of the school, most of them live in the city or near the city so they have favorable conditions for their learning both at school and at home. All the classes except 3 English gifted ones receive 3 English periods a week with the textbooks and workbooks prescribed for mainstream level by MOEET. 2.2.Participants The study involved English teachers who are teaching mainstream students at Luong Van Tuy gifted high school in Ninh Binh province. Due to the small number of English teachers in the targeted school, all the 10 teachers were called for participation in the study. The teachers ranged in age from their twenties to forties. All of the participants are female whose years of experience varied, ranging from less than 5 years (40%), 5 to 9 years (40%), 10 to 20 years (10%), and more than 20 years (10%). Only one among 10 teachers holds MA degree on English teaching education. 2.3.Research design Since the study disclosed the pedagogical beliefs among teachers in teaching reading strategies and the correlation between pedagogical beliefs among teachers and their practice at classrooms, the methodology adopted by the researcher is the survey research methodology. The teachers‟ beliefs in this study were measured by a designed questionnaire in which they expressed their opinions about the importance of cognitive reading strategies instruction. Additionally, in questionnaires, teachers also self-reported their practice of each reading strategy based on Likert scales 1 to 5 ranging from hardly ever to almost always. Furthermore, classroom observations and semi-structured interviews were also adopted to reveal teachers‟ actual practice of instructing reading strategies and factors affecting their instructions. 2.4.Data collection instruments The methods utilized in the study were:  questionnaires  lesson observations  semi-structured interviews Questionnaires The questionnaire consists of four sections. In the first section, the demographic information of the participants was aimed to be collected so as to find some certain factors affecting teacher‟s choice of instructing reading strategies. Similar to Section I in the way of being adopted from Yurdaisik‟s questionnaire, Section II revealed teachers‟ attitudes towards cognitive reading strategies in terms of their familiarity with cognitive reading strategies and reasons for teaching these strategies in class. Section III explored teachers‟ beliefs of instructing reading strategies in which they were asked to express their agreement on the importance of each strategy. Section IV investigated the teacher‟s self-reported instruction of reading strategies at reading classes. These two sections included 15 identical elements that were considered important cognitive strategies in reading comprehension. Items 1-4 referred to pre-reading strategies, items 5-11 were related to while-reading strategies and the others concerned post-reading ones. The Likert Scale 1 to 5 was adopted in both Section III and IV. In the former, 1 indicates the least important or the least agreement on a certain statement, while 5 refers to the most important or strongest agreement of the item. Whereas, in the latter, the frequency of teaching increases in accordance with the higher number from “hardly ever” (1) to almost “always” (5). In order to minimize the possibility of omitting any other important cognitive reading strategies employed by teachers, two open-ended questions were added in Section III and IV for respondents to freely express their ideas without the constraints of fixed options. In this way, the questionnaire might be able to “provide a far greater „richness‟ than fully quantitative data” (Dörnyei 2003, p.47). Lesson Observation Gebhard (1999) defines classroom observation as “non-judgmental description of classroom events that can be analyzed and given interpretation” (p. 35). The purpose of observation in the context of the present study was not to evaluate the teaching. Rather, observing the teachers in action allowed a means of assessing the extent to which the teachers‟ self-reported practices corresponded to what actually happened in the classroom. It was also a form of data triangulation, particularly because key observations made were discussed with the teachers in follow up discussions as a further attempt at validating the observations. Three 45-minute lessons per teacher were observed. The lessons were audio and video recorded and later analyzed for teacher‟s actual practice of reading strategies instruction. The items in the observation checklist were similar to the items in the questionnaire, which was used to figure out the correspondence between teacher‟s self-reported practice and actual one. A schedule recording the questions generated by the observation data was also produced after each lesson and used for interviews with the teachers. Semi-structured interviews The in-depth interview was conducted to probe more deeply into the teacher' perceptions regarding their attitudes and practice of instructing reading strategies. Specifically, it helped to reveal detailed information about the teachers‟ concerns on reading strategies, how teachers decided which strategies to teach as well as their explanation for their most frequent and least frequent instruction of certain reading strategies. The interview questions (Appendix C) were semi-structured so that the participants may not be restricted within the confines of the interview questions and could openly discuss the reading strategies they utilize. The recorded voices were transcribed and analyzed immediately after the sessions. It is noteworthy that taking part in the interview was voluntary. The interviews were conducted in Vietnamese, the teachers‟ mother tongue, in order to encourage the teachers to comment freely and to reduce any anxiety, which might occur when communicating in a non-native language. 2.5.Data collection and analysis procedure Before the final study was made, a pilot study was conducted to test the reliability of the questionnaire. The pilot study was conducted in one high school found in the zone with 5 teachers. So as to dispatch the questionnaire and conducting classroom observation, consent was obtained from principals, teachers and students through face to face discussion about the relevance of the study. For the final study, after announcing the objectives and data collection procedures of the study to the English faculty of Luong Van Tuy Gifted High School, the researcher distributed the Questionnaire on Reading Strategies to all teachers‟ in one faculty meeting. After the questionnaires were completed, teachers were called for participation in classroom observation. After consent was received, unannounced observations were conducted in order to observe the actual instruction of reading strategies by teachers at classrooms. All grade levels were represented and classes were visited at random. Immediately following each classroom visit, the data was recorded on the Observation Checklist of Reading Strategies. Each item on the checklist that was observed was designated with a check. If the strategy was not observed, the item was left unmarked. Data from three major data sources were used in this research. The sources included teachers‟ questionnaires, classroom observations and teachers‟ interviews. The procedures for analyzing the data included: (a) organizing the data; (b) generating categories, themes, and patterns; (c) and examining the data to answer the research questions identified in the introduction of this study. CHAPTER THREE: FINDINGS AND DISCUSSION 3.1. Teachers’ beliefs about cognitive reading strategies 3.2. Correspondence between teachers' beliefs and their self-reported instructional practices 3.3. Cognitive reading strategies teachers actually instruct at classrooms 3.4. Factors affecting teacher’s instructional practice of cognitive reading strategies 3.5. Summary PART III: CONCLUSION 1. Summary of the main findings Exploring teachers‟ attitudes towards and practice in cognitive reading strategies instruction, the study specifically focused on teachers‟ beliefs about cognitive reading strategies and the extent their beliefs correspond to their self-reported instructional practices. Furthermore, the cognitive reading strategies teachers actually instruct at classrooms together with factors affecting such instructional practice were also taken into consideration. All teachers in the target school found themselves familiar to the reading strategies. They were, to some extent, aware of what the reading strategies are and why they need to teach them. All of them highly appreciate the strong help of the reading strategy instruction in enhancing students‟ understanding of the text, sub-skills developments, enjoyment of the texts and test preparation. However, some teachers did not recognize its importance on students‟ autonomous learning. Considering the importance of each cognitive reading strategy, most were evaluated to be important to teach students except some strategies with considerable doubt (predicting in prereading, making inferences and mapping the text in while-reading, evaluating and drawing conclusions in post-reading). Among them, the most important strategies to be instructed were activating already-known knowledge in pre-reading, skimming and scanning in while-reading and summarizing in post-reading. The teachers attached the most importance to the pre-reading strategies, less important were the while-reading strategies and the post-reading strategies as the least important. With regard to the second research question, there was a positive correlation between teacher's belief about the importance of the reading strategies in teaching practices and their self-reported classroom practices of reading strategy instruction. However, generally the frequencies of strategies being instructed in the teaching practices were not as high as their evaluated importance. Concerning the third research question, the findings of the study showed that teacher‟s actual classroom instruction of reading strategies was observed not to be as frequent as their selfreported. In other words, there was a discrepancy between what teachers reported in the questionnaire and real practice. One possibility can explain this mismatch is that teachers tended to present themselves in a more favorable light in answering the questionnaire, as it is human nature to portray ourselves in the most positive manner (Mohammed, 2006). However, those reported to be more frequently instructed still called more teacher‟s attention than the others at classrooms. Specifically, teachers tended to instruct certain strategies more than the others in pre-, while-, and post- reading such as activating, previewing the text, identifying text structure (pre-reading strategies), skimming, scanning, guessing the meaning of the word from the context, questioning, note-taking (while-reading strategies), and summarizing (post-reading strategies). Effective reading strategies such as predicting, mapping, making inferences, evaluating and drawing conclusions were less frequently used. Among the pre-reading, the while-reading and the post-reading strategies, teachers made the most instruction of pre-reading strategies, followed by while-reading strategies and the least of post-reading ones. The possible explanation for this inequality might be that pre-reading strategies were more emphasized in the course books. During the interviews, it was seen that participants who perceived themselves „very‟ familiar with the concept of reading strategies made more use of the while reading strategies than the teacher who perceived herself „slightly‟ familiar with the concept of reading strategies. In addition, the least use of the post-reading strategies may be traced back to teachers‟ beliefs. As it was revealed in the questionnaire, teachers placed less value on these strategies in comparison with the other two categories. This may be further explained to be resulted from teacher‟s unfamiliarity with these strategies or contextual constraints. In terms of the fourth research question, teachers‟ age, qualifications and years of experience did not exert significant influence on their instruction of the reading strategies. Some other factors were the constraints of the reading texts in the course book that proposed teachers certain visuals, questions or strategies to guide. Although the participants did not strongly agree that the reading strategies presented in the course books were well-designed, almost all of the teachers reported making use of titles, pictures and comprehension questions in the course books and relied on the strategies suggested by the books. The preparation for exams also acted as another barrier that prevented teachers from enacting their beliefs. Written tests of comprehension questions at high school often necessitate teachers to instruct students “survival” strategies of skimming, scanning and guessing new words. Regarding the contextual factors, the limit of time and the different requirements from classes of different proficiency levels were mentioned. Students‟ motivation and the boredom of reading materials were also emphasized. Teachers‟ beliefs, which formed the basis of the way the teacher approached to reading instruction, was another important factor. Alternative models of teaching reading may have not yet fully absorbed by teachers in the constraints of existing traditional beliefs of language teaching. 2. Pedagogical Implications My first recommendation pertains to a needed improvement in teachers‟ and students‟ awareness of cognitive reading strategy instruction. Undoubtedly, the inadequate acknowledgement among teachers on the importance of teaching cognitive reading strategies may affect their practice of instruction at classroom to some extent. As for the teachers who are not very familiar with the concept of reading strategies, more explanations, explicit instructions or why to use certain strategies should be given in supplementary books or in teachers‟ books. If the teachers can pass on to their students why they should learn some strategies, it may be easier to get the students involved in the strategy training process. As the aim is to help students become autonomous learners, the students should have clear awareness of using cognitive reading strategies. This, in turns, promotes students‟ motivation to receive teacher‟s reading strategy instruction (Yigiter et al, 2005). Another implication concerns the contents of reading comprehension instruction for students of different levels. It is supposed that students should get acquainted with a broad repertoire of cognitive reading strategies. However, not every strategy appears to be equally useful or appropriate for every individual student. Rather than instructing in the same way for all classes, teachers are strongly recommended to analyze students‟ conditions to see what fits best into their skills and knowledge. Instruction should begin and end with students, which means that the teacher‟s understanding of students should form the basis of all instruction. Barnett (1988) suggests that teachers pinpoint valuable strategies and explain which strategies individuals most need to practice. The following implications for classroom action are put forward by Nunan (1999) for teachers to instruct cognitive reading strategies for students of different levels (p. 268).  With lower proficiency students  In pre-reading, teach the strategy of activation to help them apply what they already know to the task of reading  Teach learners strategies such as predicting, skimming, scanning, and give them opportunities to match the strategies to a variety of reading purposes  With higher proficiency students  More attention may be paid to help them identify and track logical referential relationships in texts  Mapping the text is crucial to get them recognize the connections among ideas in the text  Give students opportunities to go beyond the texts, evaluating and critiquing what they read More practical workshops might be organized for the teachers. Teachers are more likely to change when they are shown that a discrepancy exists between what they would ideally like to do and what they actually do. Hence, teachers should be trained to acknowledge how their beliefs and context-specific factors contribute to their practices. In fact, perhaps by making teachers aware of their skills and weaknesses, a step may be taken towards helping them to address how to improve their practices and become more effective teachers. Through workshops, teachers might be informed about the concept of reading strategies, different strategies and how to train students on those strategies. Of course, it should be mentioned here that these workshops might not result in developing more efficient teachers, but at least they may help reduce the discrepancy. In such cases teachers will gain more familiarity with reading strategy instruction and they will be able to share their views and experiences. Needless to say, if teachers are to move beyond traditional models of teaching and to reconceptualize their theories of language learning and teaching, they need not only to be made aware of alternative models and approaches, but they also need to be provided with opportunities to evaluate new theories and approaches in the light of their existing beliefs. As the teachers base their strategy instruction on the strategies suggested by the books, the books should be better-designed for strategy instruction. A variety of tasks involving the use of infrequent cognitive strategies, such as making inferences, mapping, evaluating and drawing conclusions could be added in the books. It is noteworthy that the addition of these suggested strategies is not necessarily applicable for all classes. It depends on the teacher‟s evaluation of students‟ levels and interests to decide which are the most suitable for each lesson. Additionally, the reading materials should also be interesting or at least related to the background knowledge of the students. On the basis of strategy instruction literature and her experience, Garner (1987, p. 132) proposes six guidelines for effective strategy instruction in classrooms: 1. Teachers must care about the processes involved in reading and studying, and must be willing to devote instructional time to them. 2. Teachers must do task analyses of strategies to be taught. 3. Teachers must present strategies as applicable to texts and tasks in more than one content domain. 4. Teachers must teach strategies over an entire year, not in just a single lesson or unit. 5. Teachers must provide students with opportunities to practice strategies they have been taught. 6. Teachers must be prepared to let students teach each other about reading and studying processes. Last but not least, some ideas for teaching strategies of predicting, making inferences, mapping the text, evaluating and drawing conclusions that were not fully exploited by teachers are aimed to demonstrate. These were adopted and designed by the researcher, which were then successfully experimented in her own classes. (see Appendix E) 3. Limitations of the Study The research study investigated the teachers‟ perceptions towards cognitive reading strategy instruction for mainstream students at Luong Van Tuy Gifted High school in the beginning of 2012-2013 academic year. Since the research was done with a limited number of participants, the results of the study can only be generalized to the teachers who share similar characteristics with these participants. Furthermore, the number of classroom observations and interviews also emerged as another limitation of the study. As a consequence, the drawn conclusion in the thesis might be tentative, rather than conclusive. It is, however, possible to draw lessons for teachers working in other contexts. 4. Suggestions for Further Study Although the findings of this study relate specifically to situation of instructing cognitive reading strategies among teachers in one specific high school in Ninh Binh province, many of the proposed recommendations may be relevant to other educational contexts and to professional development in general. Thus, a study like this one can further advance the understanding of how EFL teachers think and act as well as how the gap between practice and research can be better bridged. Because of the time and distance constraints, involving all the teachers working at high schools of different districts was not possible. The study could be replicated to include a greater number of teachers teaching at different high schools. This would allow for a greater exploration of teachers‟ views about and approaches to reading instruction in general and reading strategies in particular. Another possibility for future research would be to examine meta-cognitive reading strategies rather than only cognitive ones. Additionally, students could be included in a future study. Their perception of learning reading and reading strategies might also be investigated in order to allow for a comparison of teachers‟ and students‟ ideas. Alternatively, an experimental study may be conducted to see how students benefit from reading strategy training in their learning of reading comprehension.
