language teaching

Linguistic and emotional development happens when students have English language ‘ownership’ of their stories. Simply re-telling stories doesn’t do that, but something else clicks when students interact with the stories and harvest their language and content.
This book offers useful practical ideas and activities to get students to engage with the content of a story and elaborate it in a personal way.
