Coursebooks can be predictable and prescriptive. Although they may cover everything students need to pass exams, creativity is rarely at the forefront. Using examples from HELBLING’s brandnew Listen In readers series, we will explore how original, mystery fiction can activate children’s imagination and provide more engaging ways of reading and listening. Imagination plays a critical role in development, and imaginative children can explore their thoughts and feelings more deeply as well as learn how to solve problems creatively. In this talk we will discover how dramatic listening activities, combined with a challenge to collect clues and solve a mystery, can create a real sense of adventure and motivation for our students.
