This workshop is for language teachers who want to learn to utilize short stories and Young Adult (YA) literature in the second language classroom. You will develop an understanding of how and why short stories and YA literature can and should be incorporated into second language reading contexts, especially through using literature circles. You will also receive hands-on training on how to select appropriate reading materials, incorporate relevant activities, and evaluate their effectiveness. This workshop is designed specifically for ESL or EFL teachers. Though FL teachers are welcome to attend the workshop and apply the principles to their own target language context, the materials used and examples given will be from an ESL context.
