    Reading comprehension is an essential skill for learners of English. For most of the learners, it is the most important skill to master in order to ensure success in learning. By strengthening the reading skill, learners of English tend to make greater progress in other areas of language learning. However, there are still problems faced by the students in mastering the skill such as it is hard for the students to comprehend the reading texts, the students do not have positive attitude in reading skill. One of the strategy to solve the students problems is using the IEPC Reading Strategy.This book discusses the strategy in teaching reading skill for the students in high schools. The strategy which is discussed in this book is IEPC Reading Strategy. IEPC stands for Imagine, Elaborate, Predict, and Confirm. IEPC is a whole class strategy designed to take the predictive process back to its origins in the imagination and extend it throughout the pre-reading, reading, and post-reading stages of an instructional lesson. The imagining, elaborating, and predicting come before the reading, and confirming is after the reading. The IEPC strategy has potential as a means to improve understanding and to motivate students to want to read assigned texts, both expository and narrative. So, when the students are motivated in reading the texts, it can directly increase the students attitude towards reading. They will have positive attitude in reading stage because they are interested in the activities during the reading.There are three stages in reading: pre-reading stage, reading stage, and post-reading stage. For pre-reading stage, the IEPC strategy includes the imagine phase, elaboration phase, and prediction phase. While for the post-reading, the IEPC strategy includes the confirmation phase. By using this strategy, it grows students’ positive attitude during the reading phase. The postive attitude can be examined by seeing the students’ experience, action, and behaviour during the class. To see the students progress in reading, we can use the reading comprehension test and also questionnaires to the students. It is worth reading book. It is hoped that this book can give implications and inputs to the school and the teachers to promote and encourage students to read better
