First meeting: 10th October, 2017
Please note that if you do not come to the first meeting, you run the risk of losing your place.
In primary school and lower secondary school some EFL teachers avoid using picture books or novels in the original with young and intermediate learners (years 1-7), because they expect working with them to be too demanding or too time-consuming. In this class future teachers are encouraged to look at beginning readers, picture books as well as novels to explore their potential for teaching English as a foreign language to young and intermediate learners. We will discuss how these books can be used to foster reading skills, expand vocabulary knowledge and develop literary competences.
Students participating in this course are welcome to conduct their research study (Forschungsprojekt M-ENG 4, Komponente a und b, 6 LP) with me. Further information will be provided in our first session.
