Abstract

The researcher's primary concern in this study was to investigate the effects of peer modeling (the male model, female model, and non-peer model) on male and female Taiwanese College students' self-efficacy and reading performance in an English reading class. A secondary purpose of this study was to assess student gender effects, and the interaction effects between peer modeling and gender, on students' self-efficacy and reading performance related to English learning. Finally, the study was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of the instruction of the reading strategy on Taiwanese College students' comprehension of English passages.
