Leisure Time Language Input Homework Assignment

$ 4

So many parents and students believe the only way to expand vocabulary, reasoning skills, language comprehension, and general knowledge outside of the classroom is by reading novels or resource books. I always explain to my students and their parents that there are so many other sources of content that lead to language improvement, and ones that a child or teenager may actually enjoy reading or viewing! This printable homework handout requires students to read or view a choice of language content sources, and then to fill in a brief summary of that content. An included discussion explains the how and why, along with a description of excellent sources. By the way, it's called “Leisure Time Language Input” rather than “Leisure Time Reading” because taking in language auditorally can improve a person's language comprehension and expression just as well as taking it in through reading, and is in fact a more effective means of input for students with decoding deficits.
