A Thank You to Rocky

This semester I am undertaking to teach a twenty week course in Extensive reading. I am working under the mentoring of professor Rocky Nelson who has over fifteen years experience in both implementing and running Extensive Reading courses. Unfortunately Rocky will retire in December this year leaving a void at my university.

This blog is intended for me to keep a record for not only myself in the future but also any other teachers or students interested in developing or partaking in a solidly designed Extensive Reading course, especially for those in Korea. I will try to provide a weekly plan synopsis as I teach the classes and provide links to materials and other supplements.

I hope this site is useful for those that visit.

Extensive Reading Central -The New Extensive Reading Portal

I want to put at the top of this blog the new main Portal for Extensive Reading developed by Dr Robert Waring. Please click the link below.

The Sixth Week

This week we continued with the two Timed Repeated Reading activities and 2 Sustained Silent Reading sessions. The rest of the time was involved in discussing some opinion articles about extensive reading, Sakai's '1,000,000 words' book and showing how you can Start with Simple Stories (SSS) a Japanese based system.

These are linked below and the links are fairly self explanatory, making this weeks post fairly short.

  1. Extensive Reading in Session 1 was one of the best classes. I can't wait for ER classes in Session 2, with you :)
