Gunma JALT:

Getting into the Zone (of Proximal Literacy Development)

Date: Sunday, July 16th, 2017 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Anna Husson Isozaki

Children learn to read fluently and enjoyably after many years of listening to stories read aloud to them by loving caregivers. This presentation and workshop will briefly update participants on the current research, share classroom projects putting the findings to use, and their results. We will explore (hands on) a variety of new resources available to use with learners of all ages, and will brainstorm possibilities for integrating the research and resources into our own, varied, teaching situations and contexts. Please bring Internet-connectable devices, memory sticks, and earphones as well.
