The experimental group was taught through using Dramatic Problematizer Language Learning Model, while the control group was taught by the regular method. Both groups were tested before and after the treatment. The instruments of the study included an EFL critical reading skills test, an EFL reading habits scale and semi-structured interview. Results of the study revealed a statistically significant difference between the mean scores of the control group and experimental group students in the pre and post administration of the EFL critical reading skills and reading habits in favor of the experimental group.
