I would write a general introductory sentence such as: To begin with, reading is an essential language skill and when teaching a foreign language many aspects have to be taken into account when teaching the skill of reading.
In the following I will describe what is meant by reading skills and will continue by evaluating methodological implications. Finally I will show an example of how to apply the theoretical approaches into an actual lesson.
According to Johnson (K in An introduction to foreign language learning and teaching) (2001, p271) (did u check “cite them right” on cumbria homepage?) I think in the text you just mention the last name, the year and the page. reading is ‘grouped into phrases, sentences, paragraphs. In order to understand the text, what the reader needs is the linguistic knowledge necessary to decipher the little black mark. According to this view, meaning is something that resides in the text itself. The reader prises the meaning out of the text.’
After the pre-reading, teachers need to go to the second stage of reading which takes place while students are th positive response such as ‘good’, ‘well done’, ‘good idea’. Good response helps students engage in study. After reading for a while, teachers need to know students’ understanding of the text and make students built the outline of the text. Also teacher can give questions related to the pre-reading expectation and their own experience which is related with the text.
What about post-reading? You could mention the third stage and say why it’s important and give examples for tasks.
