How to use a “dreamreader” lesson in 6 Easy Steps

Here’s how to take a lesson from the website and make it interesting for your class!  With a bit of planning and preparation, you can make a great lesson using our material!

Step 1:  Go to dreamreader.net and find an article that your class might find interesting or fun.

Step 2:  Print out the article by downloading the PDF from the webpage.  Make some copies for your class.  Don’t forget to download the audio!

Step 3:  Think of a few discussion questions that relate to the general topic of the article.  For example, in the Masai lesson, you can ask your class to talk about their own culture and why they think having different cultures in the world is important.

Step 4:  Give the students the article from dreamreader.net to read.  Ask them to answer the comprehension questions to make sure they understand it.   Play the audio to help them listen to any hard-to-pronounce words.

Step 5:  Have the students discuss anything interesting they found in the article.  This will help them to check their understanding.  It also might bring up some interesting ideas or topics for a later class discussion.

Step 6:  Give the students a small research project to carry out in pairs or small groups.  Students can work together to find out more about a topic and create a presentation for the class.
