Selecting and Using Non-Fiction Picture Books in ELT Classrooms
Caroline Linse, Saturday 9.00-9.30

In recent years, more and more attention has been paid to the usage of non-fiction picture books in classes where children speak English as their home language as well as in classes where children are adding English to their existing linguistic repertoire. Nonfiction is often more appealing to boys than expository text. Non-fiction can be used to help learners develop both conceptual and linguistic knowledge. Non-fiction picture books can be a cornerstone of a Content Based or (CLIL) program. In this session, the rationale for using non-fiction picture books, criteria for selecting titles, and suggestions for using graphic organizers with non-fiction picture books will be shared.

Biodata will soon follow.
