Abstract

Critical reading strengthens students' metacognitive reading strategies and allows them to reflect on their current reading strategies. The relationship between metacognitive reading techniques and critical thinking and reading must be stressed, given that critical thinking is an intentional and self-regulated choice mechanism. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between pre-service teachers’ critical reading skills and their use of metacognitive reading strategies. The relational survey model was used and 124 preservice teachers studying at the Turkish Language Education Department of a University located in the east of Turkey participated in this study. Critical Reading Self-Efficacy Perception Scale (CRSPS) and Metacognitive Reading Strategies Questionnaire (MRSQ) were used in data collection tools. The data were analyzed using Pearson Correlation analysis and simple linear regression analysis. The findings showed that there was a positive and significant relationship between the participants’ critical reading perceptions and their use of metacognitive reading strategies. It was determined that the critical reading skills of pre-service teachers should be improved for which educational content should be developed. In addition, the preservice teachers should be offered training metacognitive reading. In order to obtain more in depth information, qualitative or mixed method studies should be carried out in the future.

Keywords: Critical Reading, Metacognitive Reading Strategies, Turkish Teacher Candidates
