Using Newspaper Articles to Develop Students' Reading Skills in Senior High School
Bndaka, Eleni
Reading Matrix: An International Online Journal, v7 n1 p166-175 Apr 2007
The aim of this paper is to present a reading lesson which was initially designed for the students of Peiramatiko Senior High School (Experimental Senior High School) of Patras, Greece and more specifically for class A of Senior High School. The main aim of the lesson was to develop the students' reading skills using a newspaper article and help students gain confidence when faced with authentic texts. The planning of the lesson is based on the belief that students should be exposed as much as possible to authentic reading texts so that they are given the chance to encounter real language and not only the made up language of coursebooks.
