Abstract

This work is a review paper. This conceptual writing focuses on how students’ reading interest is essential for reading instruction. This argument is derived from some experts who suggest the teachers carry literacy in the classroom. It means that teachers should take students’ interest into account. There are some benefits of considering students’ interest in reading classrooms. In addition, some factors can influence reading activities in the classroom. One of those is the text. Texts serve as the input for the students in reading activities. However, not all texts are appropriate for the students. Therefore, this conceptual study presents some considerations in choosing the texts and ways to take students’ interest into account in reading activities. The considerations in choosing the text are taken and analyzed from some experts who are concern with this topic. Along the way, teachers can finally consider the students’ reading interest by understanding the ways how to consider the students’ interest in selecting the texts that will be used in the English reading classroom proposed by experts.

Abstract

Society has enjoyed the ease of communication afforded by “Whatsapp”, a popular freeware and cross-platform communication application. “Whatsapp”’s popularity has invited educators to experiment with it in various ways to shore up education. This study was conducted to describe students’ perceptions on the use of “Whatsapp” for teaching and learning vocabulary. A vocabulary virtual class in the form of a “Whatsapp” group where students needed to enroll was created for that purpose. This virtual class exempted the students from physically attending the physical class as it enabled students to remotely attend the class. Teaching and learning methods of vocabulary in the virtual class included using pictures, translation, and sentence construction. At the end of the class, the students were to inform the researchers about their perceptions of the virtual class. This study used a descriptive qualitative method. Data was collected through a paper-based questionnaire, which was distributed to all students in a face-to-face class, a session taking place two days prior to the research. The virtual vocabulary class that the researchers administered overall received positive feedbacks from the learners. However, teaching and learning vocabulary using “Whatsapp” also had its own drawback.
