Fukui JALT:

The Reading Circle: A Student-Centered Approach to Teaching Reading

Date: Sunday, May 27th, 2012 Time: 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Speaker: Ayako Hisatsune

This presentation explores how to incorporate a reading circle into a reading lesson. Ayako Hisatsune will give step-by-step instructions on how to administer truly student-centered reading classes. She will also show the surveys conducted to learn students' attitudes toward the Reading Circle and student-centered learning. Information on how to tailor the Reading Circle to the needs of any English course will also be provided. The presenter believes that the Reading Circle helps students be prepared for each English class and then later become autonomous learners.
