|Title||A Suggested Program Based on Picture Reading Strategy to Improve English Reading Comprehension Skills among Seventh Graders in Palestine|
This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of a suggested program based on picture reading strategy to develop seventh graders' English reading comprehension skills. The researcher used four tools: a checklist to determine the criteria of good picture which is suitable for reading comprehension texts for seventh graders, a questionnaire to determine the degree of importance of the reading comprehension skills, an achievement test (Pre& post-test) and the suggested program which consists of Teacher's Guide, Student's Book, teaching aids and evaluation tools. The researcher purposively chose Nuseirat Prep "C" Boys School for applying an experiment to prove the effectiveness of using the strategy of reading pictures. The sample of the study was 60 male students, (30) students in each group. They were equally divided into two groups, experimental and control. Both groups were pre-tested to assure that they both were equivalent. The results were statistically analyzed by SPSS to be compared with the post-test results. The suggested program was taught to the experimental group while the control one was taught by the traditional method. The findings revealed that there were significant differences between the mean scores attained by the experimental group and those by the control group in favor of the experimental group. This was due to picture reading strategy activation. The experiment showed the importance of activating picture reading strategy throughout reading. According to the findings the researcher recommends that the seventh graders' English Language teachers need to activate picture reading strategy throughout reading in order to develop not only seventh graders' reading comprehension and comprehension skills, but also their general achievement in English language.
