ASPECTS OF READING WEAKNESSES AMONG FIRST ‎CYCLE STUDENT IN PRIVATE SCHOOLS IN SULTANATE ‎OF OMAN

This study aimed to identify the aspects of reading impairment ‎among cycle one pupils at private schools in the Sultanate of Oman ‎from their teacher's perspective and discover statistically significant ‎differences in cycle one teacher's responses in those schools attributed ‎to the governorate variable.‎ In order to achieve the study's goal, the researchers used the ‎descriptive method. The survey population included all cycle one ‎teachers in private schools from governorate of Al-Batinah South and ‎North, Muscat and Al-Dakhiliyah. Responses of 500 teachers were ‎received from those governorates. At the same time, among those ‎teachers about 150 teachers were chosen randomly. They represent ‎‎30% to be the purposive sample. The researchers started to use a ‎questionnaire to measure the degree of popularity of the aspects of ‎reading impairment among cycle one pupils at private schools in the ‎Sultanate Of Oman. This questionnaire is divided into three categories ‎related to reading letters, words, and sentences. ‎ It was revealed that the degree of popularity of the aspects of ‎reading impairment among cycle one pupils at private schools in the ‎Sultanate Of Oman from the cycle one teacher's perspective came to ‎an average degree. However, there are no statistically significant ‎differences at the level (0.05) among the teachers' responses according ‎to governorate variable. ‎ According to the study result, it is recommended to put more ‎efforts in teaching reading skills in order to eradicate the common ‎aspects of reading impairment. Related to these recommendations, it ‎is suggested that conducting pilot studies aimed at testing proposed ‎programs are required to find out their effects to solve challenges ‎resulted from aspects of reading impairment among cycle one pupils ‎at private schools in the Sultanate Of Oman‎.
