dc.description.abstract In learning English as a foreign language, Indonesian students are directed by their teachers toward obtaining reading skills rather than other skills (listening, speaking,and writing). This especially happens at higher levels of education: in senior high school and at college. either lexical or context clues, on finding words from main ideas, that students primarily need to be able to understand English texts in order to later receive written information in English in their major fields. Despite this emphasis, however, the students' level of reading ability is generally very low.The purpose of this creative project is to propose improvements in reading instruction in Indonesia both in senior high schools and of non-English departments at colleges. The project deals with reading techniques, producing and selecting appropriate reading materials, reading exercises,and teaching-learning activities, and includes samples of lesson plans. The emphasis is on comprehending the passages by understanding thesubject, supporting details, and on making outline of paragraphs. My hope is that the reading activities will help students become successful in understanding materials written in English.
