Do you read stories to your students? In this practical webinar, I’d like to share how we can make our course book stories come alive. By encouraging and exploring listening and speaking skills, we are setting down the foundations for later reading. If we use personalization and scaffolding techniques too, we can help young readers connect to the narrative, cultivating a better feeling of belonging to the language, while acquiring a deeper understanding of the task as a whole.
