The end result is (hopefully) a list of appropriate books for each ESL level that would challenge, inform, and provide practice for our English Language Learners. At each level, my students choose a personal reading book from the list, answer critical thinking questions about it, and create a presentation to share with others. The more students play with and experience language, the better they internalize it and can readily use it. Through reading, students are exposed to more words and the patterns of the language they are learning. Creating and sharing book lists that match the abilities of the students will encourage continued student success and more effective language acquisition.
