ER Program Design and Implementation
Extensive Reading World Congress, Toyo Gakuen, Tokyo
Friday August 4th, 15:30-18:00
At the beginning of next month I’ll be doing a pre-conference workshop at the Extensive Reading World Congress in Tokyo. This will be my last presentation on education.
The title is the same as the book I have been thinking about writing for the last few years. The content too. In a way, it’s the summary of the last ten years of my work as a teacher. I hope it comes together the way I would like it to. If it does it should be a pretty comprehensive introduction to all aspects of designing and running an extensive reading program at the institutional level.
It’s a workshop, so we’ll be doing work. I’m going to use the PDR (preparation, discussion, reaction) framework to structure the group discussions and will cover the following areas:
- Designing a Program
- Selling a Program
- Setting up a Program
- Running a Program
- Leaving a Program
If you come to the conference I hope you will consider spending a couple of hours with us on Friday. I can almost guarantee you will find it useful.
