|Title||Impact of Using Videos on Developing 8th Graders' Reading Comprehension Skills and their Attitudes towards Reading in Gaza Governorate Schools|
This study aimed at investigating the impact of using videos on developing 8th Graders' reading comprehension skills in Gaza Governorate schools and their attitudes towards reading. The targeted reading comprehension skills were scanning, skimming, antonyms and synonyms, making inferences and taking notes. The researcher purposively chose a representative sample of (80) eighth graders from Al-Abass Prep "A" girls' school. The participants were divided into two equivalent control and experimental groups, each of which consisted of (40) students. The researcher used three study tools: a content analysis checklist for teachers to determine the five important reading comprehension sub-skills in the eighth grade English book, an achievement test (Pre & Post), and an attitude scale (pre & post) to measure the students' attitudes towards reading. The results of the study revealed that videos were effective in developing the eighth graders’ reading comprehension. In addition, the study findings confirmed that videos positively affected students' attitudes towards reading and videos. In the light of these results, the researcher recommends that English Palestinian teachers should use videos as a tool for enhancing students' reading comprehension and developing their attitudes towards reading.
