Introduction: Reading is beneficial in acquiring language, according to Harmer, “ The more you read, the better you get at it” (Harmmer, 2007). This means reading is a significant skill that students should practice in daily life because it will support them in being more intelligent by having a lot of input, improve their language and construct their vocabulary as well as it will help them in their careers (Harmmer, 2007). Teachers should consider reading as an important skill and try to scaffold students in simple and fun way to make students feel interested to learn. In this paper I am going to analyze my MST`s reading lesson that I observed during my teaching practice to see what worked with her students and what did not work as well
Recalling my experience learning literature in school, I would say that mine is quite similar with Ho’s. I did not have to memorize the whole literature book cover-to-cover and translate them in papers, but I only got right answers if only my answers were included in schemes although the question intended to enhance creative thinking. Not only in literature, every subject should be instilled with both factual and creativity segment and it can only achieved by not letting the children’s thinking from constrained with answer and solution

However, that may be the case because you haven 't taken a deep look into all the reasons for why writing is so essential. Writing can help you in life through ways you never thought possible.

The teacher can start by introducing easier reading such as songs, games and other familiar subjects the children know of (Keaveney & Lundberg, 2014, p.86, 94). Can also be done by reading books on different levels. As Keaveney and Lundberg (2014, p.87) suggest the teacher can read a famous story and the children can follow in their own book or paper and are encouraged to read with the teacher as a dialogue whenever they feel ready which will make them more active when reading. Hadaway (2002, p.197) suggests that reading poetry could be good since many poems are short and amusing and short poems can feel less heavy than long texts. One advantage when teaching reading in a second language is that the learners most likely already know how to read in their first language and they probably have some strategies for it which help when learning to read in a new language (Pinter, 2006, p.68).
“I like to think that I have a certain advantage as a teacher of literature because when I was growing up I disliked and feared book.” This quote came from Gerald Graff in his Disliking Books at an Early Age article. However, reading is a vital skill for success in todays society. Reading is such a vital skill because it is a way of communication, and communication is the key to success. Reading allows for development of the critical thinking process and helps to gain knowledge which gives many confidence and the ability to speak with others on select topics. It is reasonable to believe that reading may be hard, especially when the novel is over a subject that does not interest the reader.
