What is Reading? William Grabe and others characterize how reading is interaction with a writer (mirrors writing as interaction with a reader) Cognitive loads on both, but L1 readers and writers have native language advantage Reading heuristics might need emphasis with L2 readers who … “ may not have automated one or more of the component processes of reading in the second language, such as word decoding and recognition, resulting in working-memory overload and diversion of attention away from the construction of a text model.” “ Or at a higher processing level, readers may not be familiar with semantic or discourse schemata specific to the culture of the second language, so that they have no pre-activated scaffolding to help them summarize and organize the details of the incoming text, and quickly face overload. “ From Cobb and Stevens, 1996; reference next slide

William Grabe and others characterize how reading is interaction with a writer (mirrors writing as interaction with a reader)

Cognitive loads on both, but L1 readers and writers have native language advantage

Reading heuristics might need emphasis with L2 readers who …

“ may not have automated one or more of the component processes of reading in the second language, such as word decoding and recognition, resulting in working-memory overload and diversion of attention away from the construction of a text model.”

“ Or at a higher processing level, readers may not be familiar with semantic or discourse schemata specific to the culture of the second language, so that they have no pre-activated scaffolding to help them summarize and organize the details of the incoming text, and quickly face overload. “

Text Manipulation In … Cobb, T. and V. Stevens. 1996. A Principled Consideration of Computers and Reading in a Second Language . Pennington, M.C. (Ed.). The Power of CALL . Houston: Athelstan. pp.115-136. Online version: http://www.vancestevens.com/papers/1996/cobb_stevens.htm We argue that “TM (text manipulation) templates can engage students at higher cognitive levels while presenting them with virtually limitless amounts of comprehensible input in the form of authentic texts”; e.g. “on-line cloze exercises may promote awareness of contextual help in restoring degraded messages “ the distinctive feature of TM program design is that the program is able to deal with any text whatever”

We argue that “TM (text manipulation) templates can engage students at higher cognitive levels while presenting them with virtually limitless amounts of comprehensible input in the form of authentic texts”;

e.g. “on-line cloze exercises may promote awareness of contextual help in restoring degraded messages

“ the distinctive feature of TM program design is that the program is able to deal with any text whatever”

Concordance and Vocabulary “ One option made possible by the potentially large amount of text available is to provide help in the form of a concordance on the word the learner is trying to discover,” E.g “with that word masked in the concordance output, giving learners richer context, but not the answer” Tom Cobb’s Compleat Lexical Tutor provides corpus-based help with vocabulary: http://www.lextutor.ca See also: http://www.vancestevens.com/textanal.htm

Relation to reading

Best introduction to blogging is to get students READING good blogs and engage in conversations with others in reflection on their practice
