Extensive Reading: a look at its effects on long term reading habits
Date: Saturday, May 20th, 2006 Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Speaker: Richard Lemmer
Numerous studies have attributed positive affective results, improved reading fluency, vocabulary acquisition and additional learner gains to extensive reading (ER). Much ER research has involved intact classes and short term gains. This study compares the reading habits of junior college English department graduates who participated in an ER program for four semesters with those who did not.
