In Teaching English to Young Learners (TEYL), storybooks are widely used for a number of purposes, e.g. pleasure, fun, learning how to read, and language learning.
Not all storybooks are good for language learning, so it is imperative that you choose the best storybooks that can offer language learning opportunities and develop other skills along the way.
When storybooks are chosen well, the right strategies applied and effective activities done with the stories, teachers will be able to utilize these stories to achieve the learning objectives with ease and comfort, and young learners will enjoy the journey of English learning.
So, there should be a plan to use stories perfectly within English classes. That's why I've created this eBook from which teachers can get all the practical information that will guide them mainly to:
- Selecting good stories to use with your young learners.
- Applying the right strategies for using stories to teach English to young learners.
- Following the right steps when reading stories aloud to your young learners.
