English Reading Books: Reading Extra (Pdf)
English Reading Books: Reading Extra (Pdf) is a resource book containing photocopiable materials for supplementary classroom work. The activities provide self-contained lessons for the busy teacher. Each activity consists of a page of clear, step-by-step instructions for the teacher and a photocopiable page for the students. The material is aimed at young adult (16+) and adult learners.
However, most activities can be easily adapted for the needs of younger students. Reading Extra offers teachers an exciting collection of topic-based skills activities from elementary to upper-intermediate level
The materials in Reading Extra aim to do two things.
Firstly, to give students practice in the reading skills they need in real life, e.g. scanning a TV schedule to find out what time a specific programme is on, skimming a magazine article to identify the writer’s opinion, intensive reading of instructions to find out how something works.
Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, to give students practice in dealing with unknown words – by using inference from context, general knowledge, morphology – so that they become sufficiently confident to tackle authentic texts, both inside and outside the classroom. While the material has not been written specifically for exam preparation classes, much of it will be suitable for such students.
There are two benefits from working with reading texts in the classroom. The more students read, the better they will read. Furthermore, their knowledge of the language will increase at the same time. For students who are keen to improve their English, reading is the best way forward.
