Leading into Extensive Reading through Storytelling

Sun, Aug 15, 17:00-17:45 Asia/Tokyo Day 4

The presentation aims to recount how reluctant readers in a UAE higher education institution were lead into extensive reading (ER) through an online storytelling activity where students read graded readers aloud whilst recording themselves in a Zoom meeting. This was then shared on a Microsoft Stream channel for viewing outside the classroom. The project was devised to foster language and social entrepreneurial skills as well as motivating students to read extensively.

    As an individual, a teacher and a parent, I have been interested in reading for a long time as the foundations on independent, life long learning. I have taught in pre-school up to tertiary level and over 36 years of teaching have found that most students love stories.
