Teaching Reading Skills describes how the texts we read are organized to communicate meanings. It breaks down and examines the skills we use in reading, analyzing what is involved in effective reading, and suggests ways of helping students to develop into successful readers in a foreign language. It is especially useful for exam and EAP classes, and includes an invaluable chapter on testing reading skills, written by Charles Alderson.
- It suggests practical strategies to help students develop their reading competence to a higher level, and contains a wide range of practical ideas and activities with keys for immediate use in the classroom.
- Four sample lesson plans are provided, to show how various approaches can be combined in a single lesson.
