Reading is a sophisticated and interactive process which includes psychological, linguistic, and sociological aspects. It is also closely related with general learning and writing procedures. Reading involves an interactive process in which the reader actively produces meaning through a set of mental processes. There is obviously an ongoing interaction between the reader and the text. Teaching students to think while reading is referred to the critical reading. Critical reading is defined as learning to evaluate, draw inferences and arrive at conclusion. Yalçın states when readers receive a text, they parse it into grammatical dependencies, and at the same time, activate concepts and relations because when one item of knowledge is activated, other items closely associated with it in mental storage are also activated.
