Okayama JALT:

Writing a graded reader

Date: Sunday, February 14th, 2010 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Rob Waring

In this presentation, Rob Waring will focus on the process of writing a graded reader. He will look at the story formation stage by identifying story plot and development, and showing key elements that should or should not be in place for a good story to be told. Then Waring will look at how a graded reader syllabus is created by investigating in detail how words are selected and grammar syllabuses selected. Following this, the presenter will show how to put it together to write motivating graded reading materials.
