Some of you might be familiar with our Critical Reading Club (aka CRC). The idea behind it is that students read an article before the class and then discuss its content and share their thoughts in the classroom. Previously, we encouraged you to use authentic articles with your students on our Instagram account. But then we got some feedback from you and started developing a more teacher-friendly idea. We’re happy to announce that from now on, we’ll be publishing the Critical Reading Club worksheets.
New worksheet format
The main idea behind the Critical Reading Club hasn’t changed: students read an article before the class and then do a series of activities related to its content in the classroom. What’s new is that we have developed the worksheet with some relevant language points and varied speaking tasks. The end result is a short worksheet which typically contains four or five tasks and takes about 30-45 minutes to complete. From the feedback we’ve received so far, it seems it may take longer, as learners tend to get really engaged with the topics!
