Celta Assignment 2

983 words - 4 pages

Of the two suggested texts for use in a reading lesson with Entry 2 ESOL students, the text entitled ‘Education in the UK’ was selected on the basis of its content/relevance and on the grading of the language used.
Upon arrival in the UK, many ESOL students have little to no experience of a system of education and as a result, are often unfamiliar with many of the concepts present in the British education system, i.e. the fact that attending school is compulsory for children between the ages of 5 and 16.The text ‘Education in the UK’ not only provides students with an opportunity to practice reading as a receptive skill but it also acts as an informative piece of reading material ...view middle of the document...

Activity: Students are asked to speak in small groups about schools/education in their country or a country they are familiar with.

4) Intensive reading task
Intensive reading tasks are designed to allow students to read for specific information within a text.
Activity: Students are given several sentences must say whether each one is true or false.
5) Extension activity
