A02 - Free Reading: Fostering Literacy and Language Acquisition in a CI (Comprehensible Input) Classroom

A Free Voluntary Reading Program in a CI (Comprehensible Input) Classroom is a powerful tool that fosters literacy and supports the acquisition of language. Free Voluntary Reading offers students the opportunity to choose their own reading materials in the target language that they are genuinely interested in, while also having the opportunity to develop their confidence in writing and speaking in the target language. We will discuss strategies, resources and assessment tools that can support your reading program as well as the authentic language acquisition that takes place in a TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling) and CI classroom.
