Creative ways to help students develop reading habits
How many times do we see our students frowning at the words “You must read!”
It’s time we change this by making books student-friendly again. No matter how much technology comes into our students’ lives, nothing will replace the benefits that reading a good book can bring to a child’s brain. Reading doesn’t have to be a dull activity, it’s our job to engage, inspire and motivate students. This course will freshen up your tools and ideas to use in class from elementary to middle school to help your students acquire reading and writing habits.
At the end of this course you will be able to:
- Select books according to your students' ages and reading ability
- Develop Storytelling techniques
- Use Apps to promote reading habits
- Develop activities according to the Multiple Intelligences theory
- Recognize the Color Add system and apply it to plan inclusive learning activities
- Develop writing activities from diverse triggers and on diverse platforms.
