10. About Reading

  • Bottom-up v.s. Top-down

A combination of top-down and bottom-up processing, or what has come to be called interactive reading, is almost always a primary ingredient in successful teaching methodology because both processes are important. (Brown,Teaching by Principles ) In practice, a reader continually shifts from one focus to another, now adopting a top-down approach to predict probable meaning, then moving to the bottom-up approach to check whether that is really what the writer says. (Nuttall, 1996, p.17) 11. Pre-readingActivities

  • Activatebackgroundknowledge/ schema/ prior knowledge

A reader will rely on knowledge about a known topic to sort out word meaning; conversely, a reader who has a mastery of the texts vocabulary but is unfamiliar with the topic will rely on word knowledge in order to comprehend a text. (Mikulecky,What is Reading?) 12. Brainstorming- Webbing 13. While-reading activities- semantic map/graphic organizer

  • Readers can easily be overwhelmed by a long string of ideas of events. The strategy of semantic mapping, or grouping ideas into meaningful clusters, helps the reader to provide some order to the chaos. ( Brown, Teaching by Principles )
