Title: Extensive reading in English and its practical applications to Korean secondary schools
Author: Jung, Hye Jin
Abstract: Depicting the problems with teacher -centered English reading classes in Korea , this report proposes extensive reading as a possible means to address the issues related to intensive reading . Literature on extensive reading is reviewed to provide a rationale for including it in reading curriculum . Research has shown that extensive reading , with its focus on reading large amounts of self -selected , easy and interesting materials , offers a wide range of learning benefits to second language learners . Based on research findings , this report presents some pedagogical suggestions for the implementation of extensive reading in Korean secondary schools by exploring practical issues , including materials , teacher roles , activities , and assessment in an extensive reading program .
