Reading is central to all learning and should enjoy more attention than any skill associated with learning. Undoubtedly, reading difficulty has an adverse effect on learning and on acquiring of information in general. This dissertation is a proposal of teaching reading skills which enable students to read purposefully, to become self-reliant students and to have a beneficial effect on their command of the English language. Chapter One gives the historical background while Chapter Two identifies problems facing teaching reading in English in Namibian secondary schools in general and in standard 8 in particular. Chapter three gives a review of the literature and Chapter Four the proposal itself. Chapter Five exemplifies the proposal by means of model lessons while Chapter Six focuses on implementation and evaluation.
