Differences of Reading Process Between English Learners and Native Speakers

The teaching of English literacy skills does not need to be postponed until the students are fluent in English or even until they are at an intermediate level. The development of literacy in English can begin quite early in the acquisition process (Crawford, 1994; Fitzgerald & Noblit, 1999). This is particularly true for older students or for those who already have some literacy skills in their native language. The important thing to remember is that effective reading instruction for English learners involves many of the same strategies as effective reading instruction for native speakers of English.
The process of learning to read in English seems to be very similar for both English learners and native English speakers (Peregoy & Boyle, 2000). All readers learn to use their knowledge of conventions of print, structure of the English language, and background knowledge to make sense of text. However, there are some important differences between native English speakers and English learners. Important factors that contribute to these differences include proficiency in English, background knowledge, and literacy in the first language. A key instructional difference is that meaning-making and vocabulary must be even more central to the reading process for English learners than for native English speakers.
