Teaching English to Young Learners through a story-based framework and the Role of ICTs
The purpose of this article is to design four consecutive lessons for a particular teaching context in order to develop learners’ skills and improve both the learning conditions and activities already used. In the first part, there is a short description of the current teaching context with reference to learners’ profile, the aims and objectives set by the official curriculum and the coursebook used. In the second part, there is reference to the teaching framework that will be used in order to design the lessons. Then, in the third part there is a presentation of the story-based framework comprised of the four lessons developed, while there are some suggestions for formative assessment for the particular framework. Finally, there is a conclusion summarizing all the theoretical concepts mentioned in the previous sections. There is also a framework diagram with a brief description of every lesson and the materials used in the appendices (Appendix II, p. 7).
