Reading self-concept and reading motivation are two important factors in reading comprehension. Theoretically, reading self-concept and reading motivation influence reading comprehension. Reading self-concept consists of positive and negative ones. These are influenced by prior behaviours and performance. The reading self-concept includes a range of areas, such as academic self-concept, subject matter specificity, verbal ability, physical self-concept, social self-concept, peer relations, and parent relations. Whilst reading motivation can be classified as intrinsic and extrinsic ones. Reading comprehension itself consists of several types, namely literal comprehension, reorganization, inference, prediction, evaluation, and personal response. This book is concerned with the influence or the correlation among reading self-concept, reading motivation, and reading comprehension of students of Junior High School Number 1 in Belitang. Specifically for the eighth grade students of Junior High School Number 1 in Belitang. This book is hopefully beneficial not only for the teachers of English teaching at junior high schools but also for the students who learn English as one of supplementary references. It may also be useful for anybody who is interested in teaching or learning English as a foreign language.
