hi..I think I am late for posting this because you said it was the last 5 days..
anyway..as far as ı can,I ll try to tell what I know and apply in my English classes...
Before ı start my reading lesson,I make my sts use other skills,as well...
for example...they discuss the topic or brainstorm the words which they predict they could see in the text...
or I let them listen a passage about the reading text..
we read more than once...
my sts do the given activity(matching,true-false or whatever)..
as a close-up ,sts can prepare a different end for the text,
or it can be a role-play , they can discuss the issue in the text..
for a follow up activity, you can also use games,it works:)
