Abstract (2. Language): 
Okuma tarih boyunca önemli bir olgu olmuştur. Tarih boyunca uzmanların ilgisini çeken okuma, günümüzde de çok büyük öneme sahiptir. Bazı insanlar akademik gibi özel amaçlar için okurken bazıları sadece vakit geçirmek için okumaktadır. Her ne sebeple olursa olsun, okuma geliştirilebilen bir süreç ve beceridir. Her insanın kendine özgü okuma alışkanlığı ve yöntemleri vardır. Bu makale, okumayla ilgili kapsamlı bir teorik çerçeveyi ele almaktadır. Bu bağlamda, tarih boyunca, okuma ve okuma eğitimindeki dokuz farklı temel teori detaylı bir şekilde ele alınacaktır. Okuma günümüzde son derece önemlidir ve bireylerin bilinçsiz okuma stratejileri oldukça fazla zaman kaybına sebep olmaktadır. Bu makale, öğrencilere ve öğreticilere okuma zorluklarının üstesinden gelmede ve okuma alışkanlıklarını geliştirmede yardımcı olmayı amaç edinmektedir.
Abstract (Original Language): 
Reading has been an important concept throughout the history. Reading drawing the attention of the experts is of great importance. Some read for specific purposes such as academic whereas the others read just for pleasure. Regardless of what purpose it is, reading is a process and skill that can be improved. Each person has his/her own reading habit and methods. This study reviews an overall theoretical framework of reading. In this respect, nine different predominant theories in reading and reading education throughout the history will be examined in detail. Reading has been remarkably important today and unconscious reading strategies cause too much waste of time. This article aims to assist learners and instructors to overcome difficulties in reading and streamline reading habits.
