Encouraging Critical Reading in the EFL Classroom
Correia, Rosane
English Teaching Forum, v44 n1 p16-19, 27 2006
Using a reading lesson designed for advanced university students in Brazil, the author discusses different types of exercises that can help students become more active readers and be more critical about the reading materials. The author distinguishes between passive and active reading tasks and argues that active tasks are more beneficial because they encourage readers to read between the lines. The author describes some pre-reading, while-reading, and post-reading activities.
