Abstract

As the society we are living has become more complex and specialized in the last decades, reading has become one of the most important skills in ELT/ EFL teaching. The importance of connecting and commenting on the ideas are the key elements of social and academic success. In the past decade, there has been a sustained interest in promoting reading as a significant and viable means of language development for second and foreign language (L2 and FL) learners (Day and Bamford, 1998; Krashen, 1995). Critical reading is a skill which we use in our social and academic lives. As critical readers we need to understand, question and evaluate the texts which are actively participate in our lives. By looking at the texts which are already there, from a different point of view will develop our critical thinking as well as critical reading. Being one of the most frequent skills that we use in every part of our lives, critical reading can be developed through learning and practice. In this study the benefits of Critical (CR) practices in traditional EFL/ELT classes is discussed and some classroom applications to improve critical reading in ELT is presented
