Teachers and parents can develop children's reading ability, thinking skills, emotional attitudes, and values by using graded readers. In this sharing session, Mr Zhou will provide suggestions and techniques for teachers and parents to make the best use of graded readers. This will include:
• how to use graded readers to design diverse reading activities;
