The Giving Tree
THE FL AREA IN THE CURRICULUM. CRITERIA TO BE REFLECTED IN THE SCHOOL EDUCATIONAL PROJECT.
We should be aware that the teacher on his/her own cannot instil the habit of reading on the students; but rather we can help students by encouraging them to read in English. In this process, we shall have to consider what the students are asked to read and how they read it. As for what the student reads, it very much depends on the aim (whether to consolidate vocabulary, to work on a given transversal content…) and also on the interests of the student. Luckily, teachers are used to solving this problem once we have worked with them for some time and have detected their needs and interests.
The students must develop the capacities allowing them to favour working habits, showing responsibility and self-confidence in their work. Additionally, they will practise coexistence values and social abilities, together with transversal elements like road safety education and environmental care.
