» Miscue Analysis in Reading a Second Language
By tolistefl | Published 09/26/2007 | Miscellaneous | Recommendation:
Reading is an activity that everybody, even with little schooling, has been taught, either formally at school or informally at home by a more knowledgeable relative. It is a window to a new world because it allows the person access to the vast world of stored (written or electronically-saved) knowledge. Besides its obvious usefulness as a social skill, reading is also an indispensable educational tool; most of studying is conducted through reading and quite a lot of classtime is invested in the students (and the teacher, but to a lesser extent) reading aloud. Therefore, such an important activity needs to be studied, the reader's faults be identified and, hopefully, rectified. In this paper, the first part will deal with the theoretical foundations of teaching, investigating the models and modes of reading, dwelving briefly into the differences between reading in the native language and reading in a foreign language, examining reading aloud and concluding with the method of miscue analysis. The second part will deal with a research project on miscue analysis; its purpose being to examine the validity of a certain model of miscue analysis as applied on Greek learners of English and to propose certain improvements. Finally, the Conclusions and Implications unit interprets the results of the research and points the teacher (and the researcher) some further steps onwards.
