Abstract

This book chapter will present the integration and implementation of Perusall in a flipped online English Reading and Writing Course. Perusall was chosen primarily because it aroused English as a second language students’ interest in reading different text types as well as enhancing reading and writing skills and establishing their appreciation of literary texts. Perusall gives students the chance to be both elicitors and respondents to questions raised by others, which provides the opportunity to learn from their peer feedback and to realize the importance of critical evaluation of literacy texts. Ultimately, students benefit from a greater appreciation of the aesthetics of literacy texts, which also furthers their understanding of the strong correlation between reading and writing. Overall, it would seem that the introduction of Perusall within a flipped classroom has been an effective strategy to enhance learning motivation among students and promote critical reading during the COVID-19 pandemic.
