These days, it seems extremely challenging to get students interested in reading; there’s just so much competition from digital media for young learners’ attention. But teachers are aware that an early, positive experience with reading can help provide learners with vital input and a foothold for learning English. In this workshop, participants will look at how hands-on projects can be used to make non-fiction reading more interesting and engaging for young learners.
