Reading Habits of Grade V Students of a Primary School in Eastern Bhutan: A Case Study
Asian Journal of Language, Literature and Culture Studies,
Reading is an intelligent interaction that incorporates thinking, information on right pronunciation and comprehension . The compelling utilization of these abilities in a reading climate empowers readers to comprehend the content. The accomplishment of the reading cycle relies upon factors like understanding demeanor, the motivation behind reading, and earlier information on the content, the design of the content, knowledge on vocabulary; comprehension relies upon the reader's association with the content . Reading is a deep-rooted ability to be utilized both at school and all through life. Reading is a fundamental ability. It is a foundation for a child’s accomplishment in school and, without a doubt, all through life. Without the capacity to read well, opportunity for individual satisfaction and occupation achievement definitely will be lost. I have carried out this research to examine the reading habits of 25 students studying in grade five in my school. The understanding of their reading habits would better equip the teachers to explore and identify the necessary interventions needed to enhance their reading habits. Therefore, I would like to undertake action research using model modified by  starting with reconnaissance and generating action research questions. The understanding of their reading habits would better equip the teachers to explore and identify the necessary interventions needed to enhance their reading habits. Above all, employing various intervention strategies and bringing up declining reading habits of these 25 students will be my top most priority.
