Abstract


Reading articles in English is the top practical and advanced level in the series of readings skills in English majored training. With the purposes of applying strategies in reading to upgrade vocabulary, especially idioms and semantics; get information; and up-to-date the news, this subject can be considered as an interesting but challengeable course for students as well as instructors. How to involve students in learning process actively and effectively is a hard question for the lecturer. We set up the 15-week- in -30 periods - course class with hands-on activities that engage and promote the learners in practice. The learning kit of three authentic habited (means weekly or daily) tasks like Keeping Journal of Reading News; Spotlight in the Records; Glossary Handbook was a tool of assessment of their learning process. Positive feedbacks from 90 in 180 students, surveyed in the 15th class about students’ responses of these activities could answer something for the question above. That is also the nice idea for others in organizing their classes for higher level of practice like writing, or speaking.
