I’ll be at the Asian Conference on Language Learning in Osaka from tomorrow until Sunday. I’ll be manning the JALT ER-SIG table and doing a workshop on extensive reading at 13:30 on Sunday, details below:
“Extensive reading is becoming part of the mainstream of language teaching, but many teachers and institutions are only vaguely aware of it and are not confident of being able to integrate it into their classes. The good news is that ER is extremely flexible and would be a valuable addition to any language program. This workshop will start with a brief overview of extensive reading: what it is, the potential benefits for learners and teachers, several examples of how to implement it in different contexts, and an overview of resources to get more information. The latter half of the workshop will be open for questions about any aspect of extensive reading.”
Would be great to see you there.
