Do our students get the benefit of reading? Do they fully understand what they are reading? This workshop attempts to answer these question by exploring various reading strategies emphasize in Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication and Collaboration (4C) which eventually lead to the development of Higher Order Thinking Skills. In 21st Century reading classroom, learners are expected to be actively involved in the learning process from pre-reading activities to post-reading activities. However, different learners seem to approach reading tasks in different ways, and some of these ways appear to lead to a better comprehension than the other ones. In other words, it is a challenge for teachers to creatively choose strategies and promptly scaffold to hone learners’ reading skill as an effort of having sustainable learning process. In this session, there are 4 reading strategies; Treasure Hunt, Reading Pyramid, Reader’s Theatre, and Reading Circle, that will be delved into through hands on activities. Participants of this workshop will found out how each of this strategy stimulate learners’ 4C, how suggested pre-reading, reading and post-reading activities be used within the strategy, and how it will eventually improve learners’ skill in reading.
