Reading, rhyming and riddling in the EFL class: materials development to teach English through literature

Though conferences, journals, symposiums, webinars, Moocs, academic networks and the like provide numberless opportunities for lifelong learning and in-service education, comparatively speaking, in these spaces of academic exchange, literature and the teaching of literature in the EFL class are given a Cinderella corner. For this reason and because the tutors consider teachers of English can innovate in their daily practice by introducing literary texts in their lessons, in this course they propose to put in the limelight some literary texts available through new media, to co-design materials for different contexts and to discuss their pedagogical potentialities.

GALA AWARD (Good Attendance and Loyalty Award)


FAAPI wants to express a well-deserved recognition to all the FAAPI Conference goers who attend our annual conference, even if it has meant making some significant sacrifices to attend them, and have loyally maintained close ties with their local association. This also applies to those who have helped to transform our yearly meeting NOT ONLY into the niche for both academic and professional advancement AND for sharing practical ideas and theory-driven methods, but also for creating social relations and unforgettable anecdotes.

A FAAPI Conference is in itself a challenging project, a utopian legacy and a real mandate to make it a federal experience. These are the underlying arguments which have made each Association bring these professional get-togethers into existence, in settings as diverse as metropolitan or provincial capital cities or small-town locations nationwide. Our loyal FAAPI conference goers can attest to that. The Gala Award is our humble expression of gratitude and appreciation.
