This study explored the feasibility of junior high school students’ self-regulated learning Classical Chinese. Along with the theory and experimental studies of reading and self-regulated learning, the author suggested a self-regulated learning Classical Chinese Program (SLCC). The rationale of the program was to activate readers’ prior knowledge which was related to the classical text’s main idea and text structure. On the other hand, the author grouped classical texts by their main ideas and text structures for students to read. During self- learning period, students were encouraged to monitor the process and to discuss with peers to in order to comprehend the difficult parts of the texts. After several trial out, teachers and students agreed that SLCC made Classical Chinese more friendly and easier to approach.
