PRESENTATION

Values education through teaching a fiction story to university students

A fiction story is not just an authentic text aimed at developing students’ language skills. It is also a serious basis for their cultural enrichment, personal involvement and values education. Can a fiction story help university students to create their own system of values? How can fiction stories be selected for EFL classes? Do fiction stories have any life-long positive effect on university students who read and discuss them? The presenter will dwell on these questions using her own experience in teaching a fiction story to EFL students at the Academy of Public Administration under the aegis of the President of the Republic of Belarus and Belarus State Economic University.
