    • students with lower English proficiency were encouraged to read the Chinese versions then the English versions.
  • In the second semester:
    • the class of lower English proficiency was provided with English materials supplemented with introduction in Chinese;
    • the class with higher English proficiency was provided with English materials only and were asked by the English teacher to write an essay related to the reading theme at the end.
  • Library lessons were scheduled for instruction of reading strategies and discussion of reading materials.

 

 P.2 students

 

  • In the 1st semester, thematic books related to the English curriculum were used. In the 2nd semester, series titles were introduced.
  • Bilingual materials were provided to parents and they were asked to read the Chinese version with their children at home before attending the library lessons.
  • During the lessons, the teacher-librarian taught the P.2 students reading skills and went through the English versions.
  • During the morning reading time, students were put into groups of 4 or 5. Each led by a "Reading buddy" from the upper forms. The buddies went through the English text with his/her group of P.2 students.
