Re-writing Classic Foreign Literature As Graded Readers
Date: Saturday, April 18th, 2015 Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Speaker: Alastair Lamond
The presentation will focus on the mechanics and retelling process of writing a graded reader at a low level as well as look at the socio-cultural benefits of low-level graded reader versions of non-Western classic literature. The presenter will share how he approached the project to ensure a connection with a modern audience. Participants are asked to bring ideas for classic foreign literature that would be popular as graded readers in English.
