龙源期刊网 An Experimental Design of a Study on Meta—Cognitive Strategy with the Perspective of Error Analysis in Listening Training 作者:熊焕力 来源:《校园英语· 上旬》2016 年第 10 期 【Abstract】Though abundant work has been done in both meta-cognitive strategy and error analysis, less has been done in the exact execution model of applying meta-cognitive strategy with the perspective of error analysis. This study explored the construction of an integrative execution model of meta-cognitive strategy with the perspective view of error analysis. This thesis involves 2 research questions: 1) Will the training of applying meta-cognitive strategies with the help of error analysis improve students? listening performance significantly? 2) If any, will this improvement significantly correlated to students? conscious application of meta-cognitive strategies with the help of error analysis? 【Key words】meta-cognitive strategy; error analysis; language proficiency; experimental study 1. Introduction In the 1970s, the study of second language acquisition started, since Rubin put forward “what the ?good language learner? can teach us” (Rubin, 1975).That also signed the beginning that the study of strategies in learning and using a second language has been becoming an important part in the applied linguistics. At the same period, the term “Meta-cognition”, as a psychological concept, was first introduced to the domain of education and learning. The influential educational psychologist John Flavell earned his great reputation for a series of academic papers in the late 1970s, indicating that successful learning consists of being able to “think about thinking”. “Meta-cognition” is often simply defined as “knowledge about one?s own cognitive system; thinking about one?s own thinking; essential skill for learning to learn”. Error analysis originated by the late 1960s and got into rapid development in the 1970s.Error analysis (EA) is a branch of Applied Linguistics which plays a significant part in the study on second language learning. error analysis is the study and analysis of errors committed by second and foreign language learners. Corder revived EA in his article “The Significance of Learners? Errors” (1967). He helped the shift in linguistics from a behavioristic view of language to a more rationalistic view and thus indicated the shift in language teaching emphasis from teaching towards a student of learning. The theory of error analysis seemed had been fading away.
