Using children’s literature as mirrors, windows and sliding glass doors in primary ELT
About the webinar:
This webinar will creatively explore ways teachers can incorporate authentic children’s literature in primary ELT. Rudine Sims Bishop’s ‘mirrors, windows and sliding glass doors’ metaphor will be explored to provide a framework for teachers to select and use children’s literature such as picturebooks, chapter books and verse novels in the English language classroom.
First, we will identify how some children’s identities are hidden or even erased in primary ELT materials such as coursebooks.
Then, we will consider the inclusive potential of level appropriate and age-accessible authentic literature for use specifically in ELT.
Finally, tasks and activities linked to selected children’s books will be shared to provide practical inspiration for face-to-face and/or online English lessons.
