Critical Literacy Practices in EFL Reading Classroom -An Experimental Study towards Chinese University Students

  •  Yang Liu    


English as a world language is more than a way to exchange information but a means to solidify certain social hierarchy and represent certain social interests. English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teachers should instruct critical awareness to empower students to transform social injustice and fulfill responsibilities as global citizens. This experimental study aims to investigate how Chinese EFL reading classes integrate with critical practice, whether critical literacy practice (CLP) contributes to achievements of language proficiency, how critical literacy practice shapes and is reshaped by students’ identities, and what contributions critical literacy practice can make to Chinese EFL reading classes. The experimental study throws light on EFL teaching.
