Abstract
Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate Enrichment Reading Project at the Khalil bin Ahmed Al-Farahidi Center at the University of Nizwa in the Sultanate of Oman. The study sample consisted of 54 female students from the seventh grade at the Heritage School (grades 5-10) in the Nizwa Governorate, selected purposively. Methods: Two instruments were used: an observation card to measure the students' levels in oral expression skills, and a questionnaire to investigate the attitudes of seventh-grade female students toward reading stories and booklets from the Khalil bin Ahmed Al-Farahidi Center. The study lasted for two months in the second semester of the academic year 2003/2024 according to a strategy outlined in the study procedures. Results: The results revealed that the oral expression skills of the seventh-grade female students in the experimental sample ranged from high to very high, and the attitudes of the seventh-grade female students toward reading were positive. As all the means for all the paragraphs ranged between (1-2), there were no statistically significant differences between the levels of female students in oral presentation skills and their attitudes toward reading from reading materials at the Khalil Center. Conclusions: The study ended with a group of recommendations aimed to develop this project such as constructing instruments relating to reading and attitudes toward reading accompanying the project of stories and booklets that have been produced.
