ABSTRACT
The article discusses various reading comprehension strategies. Students, according to the study, have used several strategies for reading comprehension. They may range from fundamental approaches like re-reading, visualizing and using the dictionary to more sophisticated methods such as exploring inferences and summarizing. Teachers, however, can guide students to other methods by: asking strategic questions and directing students to textual and visual context clues, engaging them in role-play scenarios and teaching them to skim texts strategically.
