Reading for Pleasure in a Foreign Language. Pathfinder 2.
Swarbrick, Ann
This practical guide is intended to help teachers encourage recreational reading in a second language. The guide is based on the experience of one British school. The guide's first section offers suggestions for finding and selecting appropriate books or story collections, library instruction, keeping individual reading diaries, and helping slow readers and low achievers. Forms used for recordkeeping are provided for illustration. The second section discusses the use of short texts such as fables and poetry, with specific examples provided. Lists of useful books for students, book publisher and distributor addresses, and sources of further reading are appended. (MSE)
