Where Are You From?


Overview – Where Are You From?

where-are-you-from-small“Where are you from?” is a common question many second language students are asked in their new country and language classroom. Eye On Literacy developed this theme because the topic of flags is relevant, meaningful and familiar to learners. This naturally creates connections to building oral language. Using the resource Where Are You From? will encourage learners to share the experiences they have with their home country flag while getting to know one another in the classroom. As lessons progress, the theme is developed and new language is introduced and practiced through a variety of listening, speaking, reading and writing tasks.

Making the Personal Connection

Eye On Literacy supports the importance of capitalizing on the knowledge second language learners bring to the classroom. Tasks are developed from oral to print by using the oral language created from class discussions and learner sharing. Eye On Literacy’s Methodology progresses from the information & language developed from looking at the visuals in the book to providing personalized tasks (spoken, read, & written) that help students bring more meaningful language to life.
