Abstract

The traditional conception of reading has been one of a student immersed in a favorite book. Yet, reading in the 21st century has taken on quite a different form. Rather than reading a single text, students are often called upon to select and process multiple texts, from among the plethora of sources instantaneously available on the Internet. Beyond print books, students today are required to make sense of sources as varied as hypertexts, multimedia texts, images, videos, and text-based websites, all varying in quality and accuracy. Moreover, text processing has become increasingly conceptualized as an instrumental activity for students, guided by the tasks assigned to them rather than by the activities chosen by them.
