This study investigates preservice teachers’ strategy use when they read culturally and linguistically familiar and unfamiliar electronic storybooks to complete their online discussion tasks. In addition, the researcher focuses on the change of their understandings of English learners based on the experiences of reading the electronic storybooks and conducting online discussions. During summer 2010, 27 preservice teachers completed two online discussion sessions. The results show that preservice teachers use similar and different strategies when they read culturally and linguistically unfamiliar, culturally familiar and linguistically unfamiliar, culturally unfamiliar and linguistically familiar, and culturally and linguistically familiar electronic storybooks. In addition, the participants’ experiences and learning from reading four electronic books are identified.
