Nagasaki JALT:

Using Graded readers in an Extensive Reading program

Date: Saturday, May 26th, 2007 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Steven Donald, Nagasaki Junshin Catholic University

This presentation will introduce its audience briefly to Extensive Reading theory with an explanation of what graded readers are and their relationship to extensive reading. Following this, the presentation will show how the two work together forming a reading program drawing upon examples of the presenter's own work and that of other successful programs currently in use in Japan. Finally, it will conclude with some simple activities that can be done in the classroom that not only help students with their reading comprehension and fluency but also encourage students to form a habit of reading. Please note that Julian Warden of Oxford University Press will also be present to explain, display and distribute certain materials and samples. Free admission to all this month!
