Chapter: 2. Foci and General Findings of Research on Processing Instruction: Moving beyond Limitations

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.21680


This chapter is comprised of two distinct parts: a review of research findings on processing instruction and an assessment of the limitations of that research. First, the author reviews the existing research on PI, organized according to the seven different research foci that have guided the research; these are PI’s research strands. In doing so, the author aims to establish that the previous research has both breadth and depth. Two questions guide the review. What research has been carried out in each of these areas? What are the general findings of that research?
