A Treasury of Literary Classics (Primary)

 

Introduction
This collection of reading tasks is designed to introduce primary students to famous writers and stories of the world. It aims to:
  • promote the reading and appreciation of literary classics;
  • widen students’ exposure to and kindle their interest in children's literature;
  • enrich students’ literary knowledge and enhance their language awareness and sensitivity to creative use of language in literary texts; and
  • cultivate students' positive values and attitudes.

This collection is sub-divided into two series: (a) Fairy Tale Series and (b) Chinese Fable and Tale Series. Four reading tasks are included in the Fairy Tale Series, and ten reading tasks in the Chinese Fable and Tale Series. Each task consists of the following parts:

  • a brief introduction of the author or background of the reading text (for the Fairy Tale Series);
  • a hyperlink to access the reading text;
  • comprehension and appreciation questions;
  • extension questions to stimulate further discussion and sharing; and
  • an online/web version which provides explanation and feedback upon task completion.
This collection of reading tasks is intended for use by English language teachers at primary level as learning tasks in the lessons or as supplementary materials to support students’ self-directed learning outside class/home reading. Teachers can freely adapt the tasks and question items to suit students’ needs.
