Abstract: This study investigated the degree of reading comprehension through reading passages whose sentences were connected with connectors in comparison with another way, i.e., reading comprehension through reading passages whose sentences were connected with conjunctions. To do this, the researcher selected two reading classes and divided students randomly into two 30-student groups. Then, the study started and it continued for five sessions. Five sets of tests were administered with a one-week interval and the results were analyzed using T-tests and ANOVA procedure. The results indicated that there was a significant difference between the two groups: the experimental group, the group who read passages whose sentences were connected with connectors outdid the other group (all five tests t= 11.084, significant at p< .05). The research also proved that there is a significant difference between both groups (all tests F= 41.761, p< .05) and the results of the Scheffe tests showed that this difference is due to the methods applied not gender.
