Do you find that your textbooks contain uninspiring dialogs or mundane descriptions of daily routines? Do you have trouble creating writing assignments that move beyond simple narratives or five-paragraph essays? This workshop will use the notion of genre as its starting point: we will not look at literary genres but rather genres such as invitations, cereal boxes, menus, and news articles. We will focus on how to use authentic materials to teach reading for beginners by focusing on predictable genres, and how to help advanced students read more complex genres.

Examples of activities and materials will be presented throughout the workshop for a range of levels and languages.
