The Literature Selection Bookmark

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The author introduces the literature selection bookmark, a tool that inservice and preservice teachers who are teaching English as a foreign language (EFL) in international contexts can use to guide them in selecting authentic children’s English literature and analyze its utility in the elementary English-language classroom. Authentic children’s English literature, stories written for children to read for pleasure in English-speaking countries, are a useful teaching resource in the EFL classroom. The author describes the tool’s function, design, and use in a teacher preparation course for preservice EFL teachers in Hong Kong. The author also includes preservice teachers’ thoughts about the bookmark’s potential usefulness in the EFL classroom.
