Todays news in your classroom - Rapid Authentic Text Lessons using Technology
Using authentic texts in the classroom is widely accepted as best practice.
However, there are a number of challenges associated with the sourcing and annotation
of authentic texts, not least that it is a time consuming and labor intensive activity.
Two of the key tasks for an educator preparing an authentic text are:
(1) sourcing a text at an appropriate level of difficulty for use with ESL
(2) annotating the key learning points in the text. This
practice based presentation will focus on innovative ways of sourcing
authentic texts on the internet and creative ways of annotating
authentic texts for use in the classroom. In this session we will show
educators how to create lesson plans using authentic texts in less than 10mins.
