About ESL and QRC

The QRC collection includes a wide variety of authentic literature that supports teachers in creating rich, literacy-based classrooms.
Using literature in the ESL classroom:

  • Contributes to the development of students’ personal, social and cultural identity by exposing them to different ideas, topics, social issues, viewpoints, attitudes and values
  • Offers opportunities for rich learning experiences that stimulate students’ creativity and help develop critical judgment
  • Allows students to further their English language development, broaden their cultural awareness and develop positive attitudes towards the English language and culture
  • Encourages students to discuss and share their thoughts and opinions concerning their understanding, interpretation and appreciation of texts
