Graded Reading Activities
« on: April 16, 2019, 12:37:53 PM »
Graded readings would be a good idea for ESL learners. Some texts may be a little too challenging and discouraging for readers to read through fluently. The concept of graded readers would be to provide different levels of texts to students, depending on their language proficiency. This would work well too for classes that have mixed levels of students. You could give the same story for the whole class to read, distributing simpler or more complicated tasks as needed. One thing that students could do after reading activities would be to discuss the themes, or perhaps even act out the stories in class to demonstrate their level of comprehension.
