BRINGING A LITTLE BIT OF ACTION TO CI

The great boom that the Free Voluntary Reading (FVR) is cureently having in world language classes has allowed us to know much better the reading tastes of our students. In addition to allow and motivate students to appreciate the exercise of reading, another goal of FVR and especially in the L2 class, is to provide an opportunity for them to be cognizant of their reading proficiency level every time they choose a particular book.  As a bonus, they can experience success when realizing that they can read in a second language.

Find more about benefits of Free Voluntary Reading HERE.

There are as many books and stories as favorite topics among students.

The journalist written by Andrew Snider is a story that develops almost cinematographically in two Spanish-speaking countries, Puerto Rico and Ecuador.  Snider’s narration is practical, fast and to the point. The readers will feel like they are in the middle of an action movie. Surely students will not want to stop reading until they know what will happen to main character Gabriela, “la periodista”.

  1. Buenos dias Diego; quería preguntarte algo de tus podcast sobre todo el de la tienda de la esquina. Les das a tus estudiantes el vocabulario primero? Le das a leer la transcripción del audio? Y donde puedo encontrar las respuestas? Gracias de adelantado. Me encantan tus actividades.

  2. Saludos M. Paulina. Lo he hecho de ambas maneras. Dejándolos escuchar el audio primero o dándoles el guión. Creo que es bueno darles la oportunidad de escuchar primero y luego se pone en común qué se ha entendido para después pasar al guión.
    Saludos y gracias por tu comentario.
