Speaker: Steven Donald, Junshin Catholic University of Nagasaki; Chris Clancy, Sasebo Technical HS

In the first presentation, Steven Donald briefly focuses on what Extensive Reading is, why he likes using Extensive Reading and how it can be used in the Japanese EFL/ESL context. Donald describes a programme that is currently used in a Japanese university. The focus of the presentation is on creating and using Reading Portfolios and how they can be adapted to Japanese High Schools. Donald also addresses ways to monitor and assess students' progress. Finally, the session will wrap up with a Q & A time at the end. In the second session, Chris Clancy looks at how CLT (Communicative Language Teaching) can incorporate different approaches.
