Incorporating Free Voluntary Reading & Listening in Your Classroom
Link to Google Slides Presentation of this session here:   http://tinyurl.com/NTPRSFreeVoluntaryListen  (You will have to request access and I will give you viewing access).    

According to the research, one of the best ways for students to acquire a language is through "free voluntary" or "self-selected" reading & listening. During Free Voluntary Reading & Listening students read or listen to comprehensible books, audio-books, or videos. Learn how to incorporate a successful program in your classroom.   Get practical tips on obtaining books & furniture, maintaining your library, and creating your own FVR Readers.  Learn how to incorporate "free voluntary listening" into your class and use PQA to do a "book talk" after daily reading & listening sessions.
