In language learning contexts, reading comprehension is an important learning activity. In English as a foreign language (EFL) reading comprehension learning, a frequent reading style is the sentence-by-sentence style, in which learners understand the text only as separate sentences, not as a whole structure. This study focuses on the structural understanding of the text and map-making the process from the viewpoint of the paragraph. The assumption in this study is that map-making in KB mapping does not follow sentence order but focuses on sets of meanings formed by paragraphs. This study investigates the relation between the map-making processes in KB and SB mapping and the paragraph structure of the text.
