Week 5 – A New Reading Week

It’s a new week and time to get back to reading. Well I hope that’s not the case. One objective of Extensive Reading is to develop a reading culture which continues after the training session.

Developing a Reading Culture

This is a worksheet I scooped from a colleague’s website, ERRockstar. The purpose of the worksheet is to build awareness of reading as a part of culture.

Book Report

This week, the trainees will start to make short book reports.  The purpose of the report is less about making a concise summary and more about reporting how the reader reacted to the book. Reporting one’s subjective experience, to use post modern existential vernacular.

One book report format is here, also from my colleague’s website. Sometimes the web is useful.

Learning and Remembering

Here is a quick lesson to help student appreciate the potential impact of extensive reading and its relation to learning and remembering vocabulary.

Timed Repeated Reading TTR

This Friday the students will do another test of their reading speed. Students will use their current graded reader for the test. Here is a quick refresher to learn how to bring TTR to the ESL classroom.
