Teaching materials.

The teaching materials consisted of 14 lesson plans and 12 reading passages

which were adapted to meet the purpose of the study. English reading experts and the

research advisors evaluated them for any ambiguous wording and inappropriateness. The

reading materials were taken from the four following reading books sanctioned by the

Ministry of Education: Opportunities Intermediate (Harris, Mower & Sikorzyn’ska,

2005) and Weaving It Together, books 1 to 3 (Broukal, 2004). Additionally, the

researcher selected 12 passages from reading books for Thai high-school students based

on the participants’ level of English and interests, and from various fields. They consisted
