An introduction to picturebooks in Early English Language Teaching
door Tatia Gruenbaum, docent en onderzoeker aan de Avans Hogeschool Breda

De voertaal tijdens de lezing is Engels.

Picturebooks introduce children to English in a natural, age-appropriate and engaging way and are considered a motivating English teaching resource. However, my research shows that picturebooks are also a powerful learning-to-teach tool for primary English teachers. During this introduction to Picturebooks in Early English Language Teaching, I will first share some research results which show the importance of including picturebooks in primary English teacher education. Next, I will introduce participants to the key lesson structure of a picturebook-based English lesson, before sharing some practical examples from the classroom. I hope this session will highlight the benefits of picturebooks in Early English Language Teaching for both teachers and children and offer a great source of inspiration.
