Creating a reading routine with young learners and assisting students in discovering their ideal books can sometimes pose a challenge for educators. In this webinar, we aim to help you develop your students' reading abilities by providing a thorough exploration of the learning objectives and communication goals of the TOEFL® Young Student Series tests within the reading section, and by delving into the use of the Lexile® measure as a tool to guide your students in their exciting reading expedition. There will be also time for Q&A. 

Thanks to attending this webinar you will: 

  • Gain insight into the TOEFL Primary® and TOEFL Junior® Reading sections 
  • Learn classroom activities with learning objectives that correspond to the reading section requirements  
  • Become familiar with the Lexile® measure and learn how to use it to boost your students’ confidence in reading
