Abstract
The selection of a reading passage is one of the more complex tasks in an intensive reading program. This article explores the nature of this task by positing two categories of factors, those related to the proficiency of the learners in English and those not related to learner proficiency. Also discussed are possible sources of reading passages, including student selection. Finally, I propose that the ESL/EFL reading teacher select passages relating to three or four themes or topics during the reading program, rather than a wide variety of subjects.
