論文英文摘要:It is generally believed that effective learning requires suitable approaches, one of them being the use of graphic organizers, a way of visual representation to connect concepts that are associated with each other. This study is an action research project on implementing graphic organizers to enhance Taiwanese EFL (i.e., English as a foreign language) learners’ English reading comprehension proficiency. A total of 56 seventh graders, with 29 of them assigned to the experimental group (i.e., EG) and 27 of them forming the control group (i.e., CG), participated in this study; both groups of students came respectively from two intact classes which were taught by the teacher-researcher.
First of all, a questionnaire survey about the EG’s pre-intervention English learning experience was carried out. Next, two pre-tests were given to both the EG and the CG to discern their English academic performance before the intervention program. Then, the EG was given six periods of instruction on graphic organizer designs and relevant knowledge, as well as related practices through systematic guidance from the teacher-researcher. Afterwards, a post-intervention survey was conducted to find out the efficacy of the graphic organizer instruction. The subsequent phase of the project was a post-test using the final exam, which was given to both groups of students. Following the post-test was the interview designed for eight carefully selected EG participants.
Data collected from the pre-test and the post-test results of both groups, the responses to the closed-response items in the two questionnaire surveys, and the graphic organizer worksheets were analyzed statistically by the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS). Quantitative analysis results were further compared and scrutinized to find out congruency and discrepancy. Additionally, qualitative analysis was conducted using the results from the answers to the open-response items in the two questionnaire surveys, the eight representative interviewees’ replies, and the teacher-researcher’s teaching journals that recorded the graphic organizer intervention procedures. Both types of analysis were used to complement each other in expectation of scientific objectivity.
Results of the study showed that the EG participants performed better in ready-made or partial graphic organizer practices than in self-constructed ones, which were nevertheless the most preferred by most of the EG students. Besides, there was a significant difference between the EG’s and the CG’s post-test scores and the second pre-test results, but not between the EG’s and the CG’s post-test results, or between the EG’s and the CG’s post-test scores and the pre-determined value of 75. Moreover, enthusiasm for the graphic organizer instruction was identified, and tendencies towards the future application of the spatial display discovered. Further, serious obstacles to the development of expertise in English reading existed in parallel with the EG’s interest in the intervention program.
Notwithstanding the disruptive situations, it is apparent that this practical research study has assisted most of the EG participants with their adoption of better reading strategies and has raised their awareness of cultivating good English learning habits. Last of all, it is expected that this research plan should enlighten those who are enthusiastic about a whole new pedagogical practice.
