Abstract: Abstract of dissertation entitled A study of the extensive reading scheme in a secondary school using Chinese as a medium of instruction through the views of Secondary Three students with a wide range of abilities and their teachers submitted by Yau Yuen Tai, Ann for the degree of Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics at the University of Hong Kong September, 2007 This is a qualitative study which aims to investigate the perceptions of students with a range of abilities on extensive reading and the extensive reading scheme at school to see if there are any differences among them, and to compare the views of students and teachers to see if there is any mismatch between their expectations of the current reading scheme. Twelve secondary three students with a range of language abilities and three reading teachers in a CMI (Chinese as the Medium of Instruction) secondary school participated in the study and individual interviews were conducted. Results showed that students generally had a positive view towards extensive reading despite their different language levels. However, differences in students' views on extensive reading and the extensive reading scheme indicate that students of different language abilities do have different interests and needs. Differences are particularly evident in their perceived gains in reading comprehension and writing as well as their preferred in-class activities. This implies that the one-size-fits-all approach for conducting the reading lesson may not work for students across the whole form. As revealed from the study, there was also a gap between students and reading teachers in their understandings of extensive reading, and their expectations of the reading scheme. For instance, students and teachers have different interpretations for the role of reading teachers. Such mismatches may also hinder the effectiveness of the current extensive reading scheme. In light of the findings of the study which suggest a need to consider students' views, and with reference to the problems of the extensive reading scheme identified by the participants, a number of recommendations for the reading teachers and school administration for improving the extensive reading scheme of the school are made. i DOI: 10.5353/th_b3872747 Subjects: Reading (Secondary) - China - Hong KongJunior high school students - China - Hong Kong - Attitudes
