Özet

Defining literacy within the context of language teaching using various interfaces is considered an endeavor that holds a great potential to discover new contexts for meaning making. In addition, employing strategies both prior to and during the reading process is a way to enhance the effectiveness of meaning making process of reading. However, in the context of digital literacy and online extensive reading as e-book reading, the amount of research presenting insight on EFL learners’ strategic behaviors is limited in number. Therefore, this paper aims to reveal the role of strategies and understanding of literacy when performing extensive reading using e-book novels. In the study, 10 EFL learners were given a reading strategies training prior to reading an e-book novel. Following the process, their understandings of strategies and strategic behaviors were analyzed. In conclusion, it was revealed that the use of strategies when it comes to online extensive reading, EFL learners’ reading behaviors differed from those performed in conventional reading.
