  4. 4. Schema/Prior Knowledge “Reading is a process of actively constructing of meaning and connecting prior knowledge with new information” (Pearson, Dole, Roeler, and Duffy, 2007). There are three kinds of prior knowledge or schema: 1. Specific knowledge about topic of the text 2. General world knowledge about social relationships and casual structures 3. Knowledge about the text’s organization (genre)
