Reading is probably the most important skill for second language (L2) learners in academic contexts. Reading is gradually being recognize as a valuable source of language input, particularly for students in learning environments (as in some EFL context) In reading, an individual construct meaning through a transaction with written text that has been created by symbols that represent language. Considering the important role of reading, the process of reading should be given a serious attention in the teaching and learning process. Although the processes of reading are often too dynamic and varied for different readers with the strategy applied on different texts to be investigated, it is generally accepted that the interaction between readers, reading strategy, and text variables is key to understanding the reading process. As a result, it has become common practice to divide reading related research into three separate factors: the reader, the strategy, and the text. Therefore, this study intends to find out whether graphic organizers strategy is effective in developing students’ reading competency.
