Course Description

As we saw in the first course ‘Getting Started with Extensive Reading’, there are a couple of ways you can use graded readers in your classroom. Each student can choose their own book or you can have a graded reader that the whole class reads together. In both cases, it’s important to use pre-reading activities. This course will provide you with several practical activities you can use to get the students interested in their graded readers.
