The teaching of English as a foreign language in Indonesia is emphasized on the teaching of reading comprehension. This skill is considered to be very important especially for students who will continue their study to the higher education. The 1994 English curriculum states that the main objective of teaching English at senior high school is to enable the students to comprehend the English reading passages well to prepare them for their further study since most references and textbooks used at higher education are usually written in English. The teaching of English in senior high school comprises the four language skills namely speaking, listening, writing and reading with reading as the main emphasis. However, the writer found out that many senior high school students still have difficulties to comprehend the reading passages given because their teachers failed to guide them to relate the passage with their background knowledge. In this study the writer observes several teachers’ teaching strategies in reading and analyses the result using Zhenyu’s criteria in teaching strategies. The result of this observational study can be concluded that most teachers used teaching strategies, which are similar to Zhenyu’s strategies. However, they should also make the strategies used appropriate wit the classroom condition, the topic of the reading passage discussed and the available time given. Besides that, the use of another material could be very important in supporting the students to comprehend the reading passages better and increase their knowledge and information. Finally, she hopes that there would be a future research using experimental studies to show explicitly whether Zhenyu’s teaching strategies can really develop students’ reading comprehension achievement.
