Literature for Language Learning.
McCloskey, Mary Lou
ESL Magazine, v1 n6 p14-17 Nov-Dec 1998
Literature is important in teaching English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL), because it motivates students, provides language models, offers ways to think creatively, provides opportunities for interaction, and enhances reading development. Criteria for selecting literature include student interest, linguistic accessibility, quality language, cultural relevance, curricular relevance, and quality illustrations. The paper discusses how to use literature effectively with ESL learners. (SM)
