Text Comprehension Exercises Multiple Choice: Reading as Process

 Text Comprehension Exercises Multiple Choice


A reader-centered approach is evidenced in reading instruction which focuses, first, on what the reader brings to reading in schematic world knowledge and language knowledge and, second, on their ability and willingness to draw on productive strategies in the course of reading. More traditional reading pedagogy emphasized comprehension in the form of the presentation of text followed by post-reading questions on the text. Process approaches attend, first, to the need to prime the reader with new knowledge or prompt the reader to recover existing knowledge (in advance of reading the text) and, second, to make maximum use of cognitive and linguistic resources during text processing. This involves providing „pre-reading‟ tasks (such as brainstorming, semantic mapping, true-false or agree-disagree tasks), as well as „while-reading‟ tasks (such as margin prompts, encouraging the linking or cross-referencing of one part of a text to another, or encouraging first skim readings followed by closer , more focused ones). Many contemporary coursebooks (e.g. Rossner 1988; Murphy and Cooper 1995) offer a range of such tasks.

A key principle in the design of these tasks is the encouragement of flexible and reflective reading. Flexibility might be promoted by devising tasks encouraging readers to read a range of texts in different ways (e.g. a close detailed reading for some genres and a scanned and later more focused reading for others). Reflective reading, where the reader is engaged with the text, might be encouraged by the interspersion of questions or prompts during the text to encourage interrogation of text. More recent studies of reader strategies (e.g. Janzen and Stoller 1998) invite readers to reflect more specifically on their own reading strategies and to judge the effectiveness of those of other readers.

(WALLACE, C. Reading. In: Carter, R. and Nunan, D. (Eds.) Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. 2001, Cambridge, CUP.)

Text Comprehension Exercises Multiple Choice: Reading as Process


For those of us who have come from mainstream homes where we were oriented to composition-centered tasks and academic uses of language from our earliest communicative experiences, the implicit rules of academic language seem natural to us. However, we have learned these rules in a rich context of numerous supporting, reinforcing activities. For most of our students, however, we have to make explicit the academic habits of using oral and written language which the school requires, and we have to provide social interactive meaningful occasions for repeating these habits again and again. Since we cannot know the specific first language socialization of the IndoChinese, Middle Eastern African, or Latin American students in our classes we can solicit from them as much as possible about their first language socialization through asking them to recollect and collect as much as possible.

However, this information will not be sufficient to guide decisions about particular uses of language with which they may be unfamiliar. Thus, ESL/EFL teachers must incorporate into the classroom a variety of types of writing and talking about writing; furthermore the content around which these occasions of talking and writing focus should ideally be familiar. To complicate learning a new language by asking that new content be learned as well, is to make extraordinary cognitive demands on students. Thus we begin with what they know – their own language socialization – and we help them make explicit in their second or foreign language what it is they do know about their oral and written uses of language (see Vann 1981).

(HEATH, S. B. Literacy skills or literate skills? Considerations for ESL/EFL learners. In: Nunan, D. (Ed.)Collaborative language learning. 1992. Glasgow, CUP.)

Question 1

The expression tie-back in the title of the text refers to

[A] the teachers varying oral and written activities and content in the second language classroom.

[B] the lack of academic texts in the social environment of the students in the countries mentioned.

[C] the lack of communicative experiences which the school requires to develop composition-centered tasks.

[D] the students relating to their first language socialization in learning a second language.

Question 2

According to the text

[A] teachers who come from homes where academic language is natural are not able to apply the implicit rule of academic uses of language.

[B] Vann (1981) believes the student must be socialized before he can learn a second or foreign language.

[C] there is a double demand on students: to learn a second or foreign language and to become aware of academic oral and written language.

[D] the oral and written language requested by the academic environment is given previously to students in all contexts.

Writing a book proposal is an important step in getting published. It gives potential publishers a sense of your writing style and helps them understand what kind of book you're trying to sell.

No matter what you write a novel, short story, drama, screenplay, poem, biography, autobiography, or article you must consider all elements as you plan.

Writing Plan 

All planning begins with thinking about four key elements:

  • Topic - Your topic is what you will write about. Also known as the thesis, theme, or subject
  • Purpose - An author's purpose is the author's goal in writing a selection
  • Audience - Your audience is your readers. Sometimes you know who your audience is.


Write an Outline.

An outline will help you organize your ideas into chapters and sections. You'll also need to make sure that each chapter has a clear purpose. This will help readers follow along with your story.

Choose a Topic That You Love.

If you're writing a book about something you love, then you'll find yourself more motivated to keep going. It's easy to lose motivation when you're not enjoying what you're doing.

Find a Publisher.

Start Writing!

If you have an idea for a book, start writing. Don’t worry about grammar or spelling at first. Just focus on getting down what you want to say. Once you have a rough draft, then go back and edit it. Make sure everything flows smoothly and makes sense.

Start with the Title.

Next, check out the table of contents. 

It's usually located near the front of the book. If there isn't one, then you'll need to flip through the pages until you find it. Once you've found the table of contents, make sure to read the first few chapters. These are called the preface and introduction. They give you an overview of what the rest of the book is going to cover.

Plane spotting: Tips for Beginners

..“Plane Spotting” shall mean the act of tracking the movement of aircraft andrecreationally observing aircraft and aircraft operations, regardless of whether suchactivity is recorded using audio-visual equipment or other means.

Spotters, as they are called, are known for always being at airports, alone or in groups photographing and observing aircraft, with compact cameras up to DSLR.

Many are interested in military aircraft while others are looking at civil and private planes. Often, plane spotters can be seen around airfields with their cameras on the edge taking pictures of planes coming and going.

As aircraft observation areas disappear from the world airport scene, finding an airport hotel with views is becoming an important part of planning an aircraft observation trip abroad. There are websites specialized in hotels of this category such as www.plane-spotting-hotels.com

Plane spotting: Tips for Beginners

Here's how to spot them from the sky.

If you see an airplane flying overhead, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, make sure you know where the plane is going. You'll need to know the airport code, the airline name, and the flight number. Second, try to figure out what kind of plane it is. Are there any markings on it? Is it a military aircraft? A commercial airliner? Third, check the weather forecast before heading outside. Flying during bad weather can be dangerous. Fourth, look at the clouds. If you see a cloud formation that looks like a plane, it probably is. Finally, listen for the engine noise. It will sound different than other vehicles.

Look for the white contrail.

Once you've identified the type of plane, you'll want to find its location. This is easier said than done. There's no guarantee that planes fly directly over your house, so you'll need to use some trial and error to pinpoint the exact location. Start by looking up the airport code and city name. Then, search for the airport online. If you still can't find it, call the local air traffic control tower.

Watch out for the red glow at the back of the plane.
You might think that the only thing visible when a plane flies overhead is the white contrail left behind as exhaust gases cool down. However, there's more to spotting a plane than just seeing the contrails. In fact, the red glow at the rear of the plane is actually caused by light reflecting off the wings. It's not uncommon for pilots to turn on the lights inside the cockpit to make sure they can see where they're going.


The wings will appear as black lines against the blue sky.

If you're looking for a plane flying over your head, here are some tips to help you find them. First, look up. Planes fly higher than other aircraft, so they'll usually be above you. Second, look towards the horizon. Planes tend to fly along the same path, so they'll follow the curvature of the earth. Third, look for the red glow. This is caused by light bouncing off the wingtips. Fourth, listen out for engine noise. A plane's engines produce a distinctive sound. Finally, watch for contrails. These are the white streaks left behind as exhaust gases freeze into ice crystals. Contrails are often seen during takeoff and landing.

Check out the tail.

There are two main parts to a plane's tail: the vertical stabilizer and horizontal stabilizer. The vertical stabilizer helps keep the plane level while the horizontal stabilizer keeps the plane pointed in the right direction. Both are made of aluminum and are painted black
