Abstract

Reading in an English lesson is an essential activity to develop in order to acquire knowledge, a text will not always help students develop this knowledge by itself; it is the uses of the activities that help students to achieve this point. This research was a case study of the implementation of response activities. The objectives were: To observe how students respond to using authentic written texts in a lesson and to check if by using response activities is possible to have students‟ positive reaction. The hypothesis was established as follows: Students react positively to the use of authentic written texts in a lesson with response activities. 4 lessons were planned and observed; at the end of each lesson questionnaires to all students and some interviews were applied, all the results from activities were collected. This investigation was developed with students in the 4th semester of the B.A. program in ELT at the Universidad Autónoma de Chiapas during their English lessons. A mix-method methodology was used, using quantitative and descriptive qualitative. The hypothesis was accepted and the objectives were reached. So, using response activities and using authentic written texts can help students to show a positive response to reading lessons. Keywords: Response Activities, Authentic Texts, Critical Thinking, Positive Response.
