Adapting Authentic Materials for Use at Multiple Levels

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

With the explosion of available materials online, teachers have more opportunity than ever to create lively, relevant, cutting-edge lessons to engage their students. This session will focus on a range of authentic materials, each of which can be developed into lessons for novice, intermediate, and advanced learners, through a process of "changing the task, not the text," and a sequence of graded tasks to help learners intake information inductively as well as explicitly. Examples are in Chinese, but the approach is usable with any language.
