Abstract

This study investigates the effectiveness of extensive and intensive reading worksheets as instructional tools in improving reading skills among students. The study aims to explore how the worksheet influences reading comprehension, vocabulary and sentence structure mastery, and overall reading proficiency. The research employs a qualitative methodology, utilizing in-depth interviews and classroom observations to gather data from a sample of students and lecturers. The study begins by providing an overview of extensive and intensive reading approaches, highlighting their distinct features and goals. It then delves into the design and implementation of reading worksheets tailored to each approach, focusing on their specific activities, strategies, and content. The research investigates the perceptions, experiences, and attitudes of learners and lecturers towards the use of these worksheets, exploring their perceived impact on reading skills development. Data analysis involves a thematic analysis of the interview transcripts and observation notes, aiming to identify recurring themes and patterns. The findings reveal valuable insights into learners' engagement, motivation, and perceived benefits from extensive and intensive reading worksheets. Additionally, lecturers perspectives shed light on their experiences, challenges, and strategies in implementing these instructional tools effectively.
