It is important for a teacher to be able to teach students different strategies on how to successfully comprehend information and become independent (Wittrock, 353). This is especially true in terms of comprehending reading as this will help them for future stories, textbooks, and research. The below table displays differing ways that a teaching can stimulate generation in the classroom. An interesting observation of this table is how the learner (student) uses the base the teacher provides to create a deeper understanding of a topic in order for them to create a meaningful generation of the subject and eventually comprehend the topic.

Ren (2013) stated that learning vocabulary is almost a difficult task in every language. However, learning English vocabulary through multimedia technology can improve student’s skills in vocabulary learning. Using multimedia technology has an effective role in changing the traditional methods and providing a new means for learning English vocabulary.
