ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the various aspects in enhancing readiness for critical reading. According to the author that the concept of reading has expanded during the recent decades from a simple activity of one dimension to a complex activity of four dimensions: (1) perception; (2) understanding; (3) reaction; and (4) integration. Moreover, before the reading act is complete the words and phrases must be taken in by the visual apparatus, be understood and evaluated, and finally be used in conjunction with the past experiences to improve thinking and behavior. Furthermore, the article discusses the ways teachers can guide their students as to make critical thinking and reading a part of their normal everyday performance. Moreover, various approaches on managing the class with regards to evaluating relevancy, classification, and evaluating references. Finally, critical reading ability will be taught functionally in real life situations and not in isolated practice lessons.
