In order to accomplish the objectives of the study, a reading comprehension exam was created that included seven skills with (30) items. 48 male and female pupils were selected from ten schools connected to the Abha region to participate in the study. The participants in the study were split randomly into two groups: the control group, which studied using the usual approach, consisted of 24 male and female students; the experimental group, which studied using the participatory reading strategy, consisted of 24 male and female students. According to the study findings, the experimental group members who studied using the participatory reading technique had statistically significant differences in their reading comprehension skills that might be attributable to the teaching strategy. The findings also revealed that there were no statistically significant variations in reading comprehension skills attributable to the gender variable or to the interaction between the participatory reading technique and gender.
