CHAPTER III

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

This study investigated the effects of reciprocal teaching on the English reading

comprehension of 12th-grade students at Watnuannordit School. It also examined whether

reciprocal teaching enhanced the proficient and less proficient students’ English reading

ability.

The research methodology used in this study consisted of a mixed method

approach that combined both the quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis.

The quantitative part of this experimental study was designed to examine the effects of

reciprocal teaching on high school students’ English reading comprehension, and the

exploratory study was used to investigate the students’ use of metacognitive reading

strategies in reading English texts. For its part, the qualitative aspect of this study

analyzed the data collected from the transcriptions of dialogues performed during the

reciprocal teaching, a Reading Think Aloud Sheet, and the interviews. This chapter then

describes the research design, the participants, and the setting of the study and its

for the collection of the data, including the reciprocal teaching method and the skill-based

teaching method. The data analysis together with the statistical procedure is also

discussed at the end of this chapter.
