My colleagues and I have decided we want to move to San Diego! The weather is glorious (mind you it started snowing in back home in Chicago tonight) and the sessions on Comprehensible Input have been incredibly inspiring. It is always so great to see how passionate T/CI teachers are and how willing they are to share their ideas with others. Also, I got to meet my idol Martina Bex today...I've never felt so starstruck. Her presentation on teaching language through culture was awesome!
Below I am posting the PDF version of my presentation "Turning the Page: Reading Short Novels in the Elementary Levels". For those of you that attended my session, thank you for coming! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments that you may have. For those of you that couldn't attend, feel free to look through the slides and reply below with questions or comments. I hope that the presentation provides teachers with strategies to make reading short novels more manageable for the teacher and accessible for the student. Enjoy!
