Pupils of Minsulao Elementary School were introduced to a reading activity every day. In order for this pupil to participate they were graded individually. As a teacher I gave all my effort for them to learn on how to read. Still not all pupils were able to read properly.

III- ALTERNATIVE SOLUTION
Evaluate pupils reading habits to find out where they need improvement. Do
they “say" the words you’re reading? Do strange words slow their speed and
comprehension? Do they read every word? Do they re-read sentences? Do they vary your speed to suit the material?
2. Provide the conducive learning environment. Advise pupils to choose a place
where you’ll have few interruptions, have good lighting, can sit in a good chair, and won’t be distracted by radio, TV or other noises. Hold the book about fifteen
inches away (about the distance from your elbow to your wrist).
vocabulary by providing meaning to the words they do not understand, maintaining a list of new words, and knowing the origin of words.
4. Match your speed to the material you are re
ading. Know what and why you’re
reading. Preview the material, especially when studying. Study reading requires closer, slower reading. For leisure reading you can go faster. Be sure you get the information in graphic aids and illustrations.
5. To improve your reading speed, practice for about 15 to 30 minutes each day, checking your rate in words-per-minute. Check your comprehension by summarizing what you read. Ideally, you want to read faster while maintaining your understanding. Therefore, use the same type of materials each time you practice to provide the consistency needed for meaningful practice.
Begin your reading by looking at the pictures, or listening to the music to get a feel for what you are going to be reading about.
This is an example of an action research project on test anxiety on reading comprehension tests for non-native speakers of English. The study was conducted in a junior high. You may read the full study online: http://www.amazon.com/Students-Skills-Reading-Comprehension-Tests-ebook/dp/B006JS1MEK/
