Children’s Literature in English Language Teaching for Primary Students in Hong Kong

Project: Other project

Project Details


The project focuses on books for children that take Hong Kong as a backdrop for the story. Building on insights from narrative theory, books will be analysed as a whole, in order to select a suggested list of books to be used in English Language teaching in Hong Kong primary schools (P1-P3). It will also use relevant ELT methodology in developing sample teaching materials for using Anglophone Hong Kong children's literature as a way to motivate English language learners in primary schools, to develop their literacy and intercultural awareness by using authentic materials produced in Hong Kong.
