The present study is about the effectiveness of the Single Strategy Technique in reading skills among Pakistani EFL learners at BS-Level. Single Strategy Instruction refers to teach learners each strategy i.e. Predicting, Questioning, Visualizing, Monitoring, Inferences, and Summarizing one by one to enable them how to do reading comprehension. The objective of the research is to investigate the efficacy of the Single strategy technique. The research analyses the effect of a Single Strategy on learners’ reading comprehension. The research will enable the learners to improve their reading with understanding while using Single Strategy Instruction. The research design is experimental. The sample of the study includes Sixty (60) students, distributed into two groups; Control Group (30) and Experimental Group (30) randomly. Pre-Test and Post-Test are administered to determine the effect of Single Strategy on reading skills to both groups. Both groups participated in a Pre-Test. The experimental group utilizes Single Strategy Instruction individually for twelve (12) weeks. After 12 weeks, Post-Test is organized for both groups. The analysis of data is quantitative. The results of Pre-Test and Post-Test are tabulated and analyzed under Independent Sample T-Test. The findings of the study reveal that Single Strategy Instruction has a significant effect to improve the learners’ reading comprehension. The study suggests that the teachers should practice the Single Strategy Technique to improve reading comprehension in classrooms and enable learners to be proficient in reading comprehension.
