The environment that the teacher provides within the classroom is very important in giving students the best opporunity to develop their reading comprehension. An environment that allows for:
- time reading different types of text genres,
- time exploring those text types,
- texts that relate to the students and brings purpose for them
- and most importantly teacher student discussion.
