1. pre-teach key words
2. let the sts read paragraph per paragraph with a discussion in between
3. have sts read in pairs using a dictionary
4. first suppy the summary and do the discussion, then have them read the original
5. use illustrations or photos or any sort of visual aid instead of translating

1-sensitize the pupils about the topic you are going to teach.During this stage pre-teach them the useful vocabulary.
2-Draw their attention at the title or choose in advance a  sentence or even a phrase from the text and let them guess what the text may be about
3- Ask them to read the text to check their guessing if they are true / false/not far away

you can find as many possibilities as you can when you try and retry with your students

you can use some activities for example a story ball to make the vocabulary familiar
I stick the text on a ball then the ball turns around the students each student say one word fastly without reading. Then we try to guess the subject of the text
 
Or you can use pictures
Or you can cut the paragraphs of the text and make students to put them in an order in groups

Make it fun, but teach them the vocabulary first. You could attempt to record the story on CD. The learners may benefit from making it a listening task too. You could make flashcards for the vocabulary, or use a new technique i have only tried once. If the learners have free text messages on their mobiles, ask them to text a word to each other. They love this, it īs interactive, and it īs fun.
