Kitakyushu JALT:

How and Why to Improve Reading Speed

Date: Saturday, June 12th, 2010 Time: 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Speaker: Ken Gibson

More and more ESL teachers in Japan are discovering the advantages of involving their students in an active reading program, rather than just leaving reading to students to do reading as homework. This presentation will cover the presenter's experience with setting up and using reading programs in companies and universities. Materials, program control, motivation and results will be discussed and expanded on freely at the end of the presentation.

Ken has been involved with corporate training and university education in Japan for over 20 years. He is currently teaching at The University of Kitakyushu and Kyushu Polytechnic College.
