Abstract

Reading is one of the most fundamental aspects students acquire as it is the foundation for learning across all subjects. Reading literacy is vital when looking for a job or engaging in higher education. Reading literacy plays an essential role in improving the individual‟s life by “enabling economic security and good health and enriches societies by building human capital, fostering cultural identity and tolerance, and promoting civic participation” (Jalal and Sardjunani, 2005, p. 10). In today‟s global society, children who do not learn to read early enough, who do not learn to read with comprehension and fluency, who do not learn to read for pleasure, are likely to meet difficulties in their lives. Moreover, their chances of succeeding in an academic environment, getting satisfying jobs that are rewarding financially, are, in practice, slight. However, if these children are equipped with an adequate reading literacy, they are able to participate fully in their communities and in the larger society.
