Reading Inventory Assessment its Influence to Classroom Teaching

Arturo G. Palaming


            Reading is an enjoyable and invaluable way to expand vocabulary, to increase content knowledge, and to improve critical thinking skills. This reading program provides opportunities to develop both top down and bottom up processing through many different types of text.


            Many of the text are from authentic; traditional sources and all of then have been carefully chosen to be age – appropriate, informative and motivating. In addition, the reading program provides high interest to the students to encourage and verbalize their own ideas in response to the text, thus providing more critical and creative writing practice as well.


            It is in the above context that the program was conceptualized by the researcher to improve and address the reading capabilities of the students at any level. In this program the students can greatly build a visual image that is judging and defining their own opinions and it promotes critical thinking skills.
