Why should you attend?
In this session on ‘Teaching Reading for Understanding’, you will learn ideas on teaching reading in ESL classrooms. Learn how to help students with differing types of reading problems and how to implement both intensive and extensive reading strategies. You will also examine the role of reading in real-life and in second/foreign language teaching and current thinking about the interface between instructional strategies and effective reading. Explore strategies to engage students in reading authentic materials, academic texts and reading for pleasure. The workshop culminates in applying active reading strategies in your own teaching contexts.
