This national midyear demofest of the Reading Association of the Philippines contributed much on the enhancement of the teachers’ teaching strategies in reading comprehension across the curriculum. So, the theme for this annual midyear demofest is “Reading Comprehension Across the Curriculum. It has been emphasized that vocabulary development is very important in reading comprehension in all subject areas. The teaching of vocabulary is not through memorizing the meaning of the word from the dictionary, however through lexicon or lexical access. Meaning to say, through the use of semantic network or webbing. Students should be encouraged to create their ideas through prediction. Hence, teachers will provide varied activities to develop the thinking skills of the students.
