Authentic Texts, Reading Aloud and Tasks: using authentic English and creating fun tasks, which motivate middle and high school students to become autonomous readers of real English.

Presenter: John Shave, Alphabeta Picadilly, Bolzano

Moderators: Andrew Wimhurst and Graham Burton

Extensive reading is amazingly beneficial to young learners’ progress. If only we could get our students to become autonomous readers of authentic English. But how can we begin to make this happen? If you have already tried begging, bribing and threatening your students, and that still hasn’t worked, then come to this workshop to try out some fun activities which promote authentic reading through an integrated-skills, Task Based Learning approach. Participants will think about how to introduce middle and upper school learners to age-appropriate, authentic texts and how to create fun, emotionally and intellectually stimulating, interactive tasks, which allow even low-level learners to use English and motivate them to take their first steps on their personal reading journey.
