Abstract

The deficiency in the command of the English language among graduates churned out by local universities is at a worrisome level. This handicap can be attributed to several factors among which the utilization of ineffective study strategies can be considered one. Studies have shown that the proper application of cognitive strategies aid in the identification and retention of ideas of a learning unit. This study was undertaken to prove the above possibility. The researchers were particularly interested in finding out how the use of concept mapping as a cognitive strategy could enhance the performances of students in reading comprehension lessons. Since the language learning realm can be very wide, the focus was narrowed down to the skill of identifying main and supporting ideas in reading comprehension passages. The experimental design comprised two groups (Experimental and Control) of DCS Part 3 students taking the Mainstream English II course.
