Last Meeting - Quick Report
Oct. 25 - Rob Waring: What is Extensive Reading?
& Paul Goldberg: Introduction to Xreading
Rob presented a fresh, "large tent" view of what is involved in extensive reading in a foreign/second language—from the first, preparatory steps, through advanced reading with L1-targeted materials.
Paul introduced us to Xreading VL - a feature-rich virtual library giving students online access to graded readers for the same cost as a typical course textbook.
Big thanks to Rob and Paul for coming up and giving us such terrific presentations, and for hanging out afterwards.
Also many thanks to Paul and Xreading for sponsoring the event!
We also elected a new slate of JALT Sendai officers for 2015-6.
