MetadataShow full item record
In a public high school in Burkina Faso, English learners showed limited motivation and skill. With the support of school administration and parents, students began reading short stories, completing reading sheets, and presenting information from the stories. For three months, they read a story every two weeks. Data collected from reading sheets, observations of presentations, and student interviews showed that students’ attitudes and motivation improved. They were more confident and autonomous, and they participated more actively.
