By the end of the course, students should have achieved the following objectives:
1. To gain some basic understanding of the cognitive and sociolinguistic views on reading as set forth by L1
(English as a first language) and L2 (mainly EFL/ESL) theorists and researchers;
2. To understand the fundamental differences between L1 and L2 reading development;
3. To gain some basic familiarity with the theoretical orientations to reading instruction;
4. To critique L2 reading practice from an informed theoretical and research perspective;
5. To design syllabi for EFL/ ESL reading course;
6. To write a research proposal on L2 reading.
The purpose of this course is to explore the most significant issues of reading in a second language. Students will become familiar with the similarities and differences between first and second language theories and research on reading. Applications of research findings to pedagogy will also be emphasized.
