Sendai JALT:

Double session: (1) Reading. (2) Dyslexia: What it means in YOUR language classroom

Date: Sunday, November 28th, 2004 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Ken Schmidt, Tom Warren-Price


  1. Reading
    As they work through a text, fluent readers juggle an impressive range of tasks at varying levels of awareness. We'll take a look at several of these processes and discuss implications for becoming fluent readers in a second language.
  2. Dyslexia: What it means in YOUR language classroom
    Around 5 percent of Japanese students have 'undiscovered' dyslexia. As they get older they can beome demoralized and far less likely to want to follow classroom-based courses. This presentation will address the basic implications of the umbrella term 'dyslexia' besides simply jumbling letters and discuss some of the 'secrets' used by dyslexics to simply get them through the lesson. Also, it will touch on what professions become involved when teaching dyslexic students.
