I had seen a bunch of Sweet Valley High paperbacks at the Green Island dump. I couldn’t get them off my mind. (The books were once used in a reading experiment, as documented by Krashen.) So today after class I cycled on over and bought them. I may conduct my own experiment with students.
In other news, Maori. I’ve a copy of Te Marae. It includes all sorts of translated snippets. Because Maori has a tendency to raise my affective filter, I feel the need to accumulate a collection of vocabulary and rules. That’s how I’ll get gradually into Maori.
