Gender differences and literacy

Michael Berg
Saturday, 11 April 2015 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

In this presentation the speaker will discuss literacy differences between male and female students at the elementary level and the implications this has for performance in the language-learning classroom. I will cover how this meshes with current pedagogical and feminist theory.

The meeting will be held at our regular venue, Wel Tobata, starting at 6:30 pm in room 82. Admission free for JALT members, 1,000 yen for nonmembers.
