My main interests are the teaching of reading in a second and foreign language and the use of literature in second language learning. In both areas my interest encompasses research and teaching. I have done research into reading classrooms and reading processes, and have also written reading comprehension textbooks for teenagers. I am currently researching the way in which literature is taught and used in second and foreign languages, and have also published resource materials for teachers who want to explore incorporating literature into their classrooms.

This course explores ways of teaching reading skills in English as Second and Foreign Language (ESL/EFL) using a task-based approach. You will be introduced to the concept of task and the key principles of task-based language teaching (TBLT) and learning. TBLT uses communicative tasks as the key unit for creating language learning activities. You will also examine the role of reading in real-life and in second and foreign language teaching and current thinking about the interface between TBLT and second language reading.
