Abstract

Dikdik Ahmad Fuadi (14111330138) EXPLORING EFL LEARNERS’ READING STRATEGIES ON COMPREHENDING TEXTBOOKS This study was primarily intended to capture reading strategies in comprehending textbook generally used by EFL Learners in reading activities; pre reading, during reading, and post reading. The investigation itself was centered around reading strategies by Grabe and Stoller (2002), bloom taxonomy by Anderson and Krathwohl (2001), and level comprehension by Westwood (2001). This study tries to reveal how EFL learners‟ reading strategies in comprehending textbooks of „Pokoknya Menulis‟, „Pokoknya Rekayasa Literasi‟ and „Islam, Culture, and Education‟ by Alwasilah. Consequently, the study is positioned into a qualitative research using interview, questionnaire, and document analysis. The result shows that EFL Learners tend to use different strategies in approaching the text, comprehending the text, and re-checking their level of comprehension. (1) There are three strategies for approaching the text: specifying a purpose for reading, previewing the text, and predicting the content. Bloom taxonomy refers to this as remembering which the level of comprehension is literal level. (2) There are eight strategies for comprehending text: posing question, connecting text to background knowledge, summarizing information, making inference, connecting one part of text to another, rereading, guessing the meaning of the new word from the context, and identifying difficulties. Bloom taxonomy refers to this as understanding, applying, and analysing which level of comprehension can be inferential and critical levels. (3) In re-checking their comprehension, they use five strategies: finding answer, checking comprehension, critiquing the author, critiquing the text, and reflecting on what has been learned from the text. Bloom taxonomy refers to this as evaluating and creating which the level of comprehension is critical level. Keywords: Reading Comprehension, Reading Strategies, Textbooks, and Typology Text
