Extensive Reading Using Wikepedia
« on: February 19, 2017, 02:13:30 PM »
I haven't really used Wikepedia for teaching yet, but I thought some of you might be able to give it a try based on my idea.

I think browsing Wikepedia could be an interesting task for English language learners as they could find all kinds of topics that are interesting to them and read related topics with just few clicks.

If you think that your students could benefit from this (based on their proficiency level, motivation, etc.), you could have them spend an hour or so every week reading Wikepedia pages of their interest. You could have them write a journal about what they read and what they thought about the reading or have them present what they learned by reading Wikepedia entries to the class!
