Reading is an essential skill in globalized era.
It is possible to improve learners’ reading
comprehension by enhancing their higher order thinking
skill, which is referred to metacognitive awareness.
Readers who have better metacognitive awareness are
more independent, strategic, and perform better than
those who do not. The hypothesis that metacognitive
awareness has positive relation with EFL reading
comprehensionwasproposed in this study. Thus,
successful readers and weak readers should greatly
differ in their metacognitive awareness. The aim of this
study is to determine whether it is possible to enhance
learners’ metacognitive awareness in EFL setting by
explicit instruction, and if so, to define such a method.
