The JALT Extensive Reading SIG

The JALT ER SIG exists to help promote Extensive Reading (ER) in Japan and via our website, our newsletter, the ERJ Journal, and presentations throughout Japan we aim to help teachers set up and make the most of their ER programmes.

全国語学教育学会多読分野別研究部会「JALT ER SIG」は、講師達がERプログラムをスムーズに始められるよう、またそれを有効的に利用できることを目的に活動しています。またこの概念を元に、私達のウエブサイト、会報、ERJ雑誌、プレゼンテーションなどを通じERの促進を促しています。

ER SIG FORUM Slam Session at Pan-Sig

 

The JALT ER SIG will have a ER forum at the PanSIG 2020 PanSIG Conference at the University of Niigata (May 30-31). The first part of the forum will focus on conducting classroom-based research with a presentation by Greg Scholdt who will talk about a professional development project to support teachers on quantitative research methods. This will be followed by a discussion on how the SIG can increase opportunities for our members to conduct their own research on extensive reading.  The final part of the forum will be a slam session in which teachers will have a maximum of five minutes to explain a successful ER activity they have used.
