Reading is an essential skill that plays a vital role in our daily lives, both academically and professionally. However, many students struggle with reading comprehension and engagement. One effective strategy to enhance students' reading skills is by incorporating authentic materials into their learning process. Authentic materials refer to real-life texts, such as magazine articles, newspapers, novels, and online resources, which reflect genuine language usage and provide valuable cultural insights. By utilizing these materials, educators can create a dynamic and engaging learning environment that promotes active engagement and critical thinking among students.
