Abstract

The paper aims to investigate the effectiveness of schematic interactions visualization (SIV) in enhancing individual’s critical thinking in Advanced English reading teaching. SIV is a new form of interactive strategy with support of learning technology of concept maps, which consist of five interactions in three phrases-before class, in class and after class. The experiment utilizes SOLO taxonomy scores to evaluate the individuals’ learning outcome in four classic English articles under two different scenarios: the one with traditional learning strategy and the one with SIV learning strategy. The preliminary results reveal that the application of the multi- layered ordering SIV strategy is advantageous for individual’s critical thinking and thus sets a good example for advanced English reading teaching.
