Abstract

The purpose of this study is to observe the variations in language processing and essay structure between native English speakers and native Chinese speakers. Participants will be asked to arrange sentences from a reading passage and the variations in their sentence arrangement will help us understand the differences in language processing and essay structure between the two groups. The findings from the study will help instructional designers and educators in creating better curriculum and instructional materials for today’s diverse student audience.
