  • This course aims at increasing students’ interests toward reading in English. To reach this aim, this course will implement the ten principles of Extensive Reading proposed by Day and Bamford (2002). The students will be required to read large amounts of longer, easy-to-understand material in and outside the classroom at their own pace and level. They will read for overall understanding rather than detailed analysis.

    Moreover, to prepare the students to become the future English teachers, this course provides opportunities for them to experience teachers as a reading model. The class meetings will be used to share and discuss what the students have read. The class activities are adapted from Extensive Reading Activities for Teaching Language (2004). It is expected that a community of readers can be developed.

    Homework will be given and students will be tested on their understanding and appreciation of the texts at the end of the semester.
