ALONSO-BELMONTE, I, FERNÁNDEZ-AGÜERO, M., GARCÍA, B., PIQUERAS, C., DE BORDONS, B. & SÁNCHEZ, G. (2012). English for Primary and Pre-school student teachers.
This module consists of a set of original interactive online teaching units incorporated into an EFL on-campus program for prospective primary teachers at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Spain) through the open-access learning Moodle platform. It aims at:
1. developing the student’s communicative competence within level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages;
2. improving future teachers’ EFL skills, particularly in relation to the teaching environment;
3. promoting learner autonomy and strategic learning.
These six teaching units, or e-lessons, offer students the possibility to improve their linguistic competence in English through the intensive reading of authentic literary texts related to the experiences of children and pre-adolescents, thus providing them with a greater understanding of the world of children. In addition, they include free-choice, self-explanatory comprehension and expression exercises, which encourage the students’ independent self-directed learning.
Unit 1. What’s wrong with Mr. Right?
