ABSTRACT

In today’s digital landscape, video-based instructions have become a powerful tool for young generations to learn new knowledge and skills. Especially for English language learners (ELLs), video-based instructions emerge as a potent approach in class to enrich language acquisition and foster self-regulated learning. This study was designed to keep up with this trend by investigating the impact of the recently created video-based reading strategy materials on ELLs’ reading comprehension as well as how reading strategy was differently used in terms of gender and learning styles. In the short video, five animals demonstrated how to use each relevant reading strategy while the texts were read. The interventions were provided to 18 Korean middle school students for seven weeks. Data on reading comprehension achievements and the frequency of reading strategy use were collected and analyzed by gender and learning styles. The results revealed that males and females demonstrated different application patterns of reading strategy although all students showed improvement in global comprehension questions. Overall, the results found statistical significance among female and global learners in the application of reading strategies and reading comprehension.
