Bericht über ein DFG-Forschungsprojekt zur Förderung von Lernstrategien im Englischunterricht
The ADEQUA research project, which is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), wants to gain empirical evidence as to how autonomous learning in the EFL classroom can effectively be supported during textbased classroom activities. For this purpose, new task formats for the EFL classroom have been developed which allow for independent work with texts in the foreign language (text comprehension) in cooperative literacy events that make cooperation among the learners compulsory. The ADEQUA project focuses on the following research questions: (1) What learning strategies do students use under what conditions? (2) Are these strategies adequate in the given learning setting? (3) What interventions do teachers identify as necessary to support the learners, and what interventions do they apply? (4) Are these teacher interventions effective? The research project is situated within the context of current efforts in education to implement high-quality student-centered, cognitively challenging classroom activities and to foster autonomous, student-active learning.
