Abstract [en]

Education is considered a basic human right. It plays an important role in socio-economic development of the human society. Reading is an essential life skill; children need reading as a foundation in order to have a successful life inside and out of school. Reading comprehension means to understand what you are reading.

The aim of this study was to explore teachers’ views about teaching reading comprehension and what they do to improve reading comprehension of students in rural and urban schools of the north eastern Badakhshan province. The data for this quantitative study was collected through questionnaire and observation.

The main findings of this study were that all teachers thought it is important to teach reading comprehension. The teachers used various strategies to improve students reading comprehension. The findings confirmed most of the results from the former research about the topic.
