ETJ Saitama:

Extensive Reading for Young Learners

Date: Sunday, April 15th, 2018 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Chiyuki Yanase

n this workshop, Chiyuki Yanase will discuss how to facilitate and set up an effective Extensive Reading program for young learners using graded readers as well as picture books within various institutional contexts, from small classrooms to large ones. Then, she will invite participants to experience interactive shared reading as well as a number of different activities using graded readers from the Extensive Reading library of her school. It is hoped that participants will be encouraged to set up a reading library in their classes to develop their students' literacy skills and joy of reading.

She has been teaching English for young learners for over 20 years and holds an MSc in TEYL from Aston University.
