Hi there, are you ok? I’mTeaching Reading teaching reading; and there are many reasons why wetting students to read English texts is an important part of the teacher’s job. I’m OK, I agree, many students want to be able t o read text in English for study purposes or simply for pleasure.
Reading isuseful forlanguageacquisition, Ithink so. Reading also has a positive effect on students’ vocabulary knowledge, on their spelling and their writing.
Good Reading texts can introduce interesting topics, stimulate discussion, excite imaginative responses and provide fascinating lessons.We can encouragestudents to focus onvocabulary, grammar orpunctuation.
We need to encourage students toread as often and as much as possible;it is a good idea to discuss thisprinciple whit students. Our students need to be engaged whit what they are Reading; that is, we should try to help them get as much pleasure from it as possible.
My angle is: prediction is a major factor in Reading such as: photographs and headlines hint at what articles are about; we can identify reports from their appearance before we read a single word.We need to integrate the Reading textinto interesting lesson sequences, usingthe topic for discussion and use a rangeof activities to bring the text to life.
