In this brief write-up we shall try to share with you some useful classroom hints for teaching Reading. We shall draw attention to the use of a strategy- the 4P’s strategy – which we feel can be very helpful in our pre-class, in-class and post-class teaching of Reading. We shall also try to draw attention to another strategy – CSSR -, which we have found to be useful in overcoming Reading Blocks. Both strategies – the 4P’s and CSSR – can be useful for teaching Reading in both Mother Tongue and ESL situation.
