The theory about literacy instruction and learning; they think that Students learn best in a community of learners, in a safe environment, and when they are being guided by teachers’ instructions and of course independent practice. This Theory about the daily reading program where students select their own readings and share their reactions to the texts with others in the learning community will help them to become competent in the future.
This program is being practiced in other western countries not only by students who are in the classroom but also by people who have little free time to relax. Pines City national High school used the diffusion approach in order to implement this program, teachers got the instructions/message from the person who initiated the DEARtime program, and explain it to their respective advisory classes which will be followed up and monitored by the English teachers and students will accept this program for their development.
On the other hand, some teachers think that this program is not useful for students; they say that 10 minutes will not be enough for students to develop their reading habit and because of that students’ improvement will take some time.
