The main goal of this study was to determine pre-service teachers' use of reading strategies in their own readings. In addition, pre-service teachers' use of these strategies in their future teaching practices was also investigated.
The subjects for this study were 505 pre-service teachers enrolled in one of the major universities in Ankara.
The results of the study revealed that pre-service teachers employed 28 out of 38 reading strategies most of the time. However, interview results illustrated that they reported using very limited scope of reading strategies.
An interesting finding in this study was that all subjects accepted the responsibility to teach and improve their future students' reading skills.
