Cold Character Reading for Japanese

Eight convenient online sessions explore:
Session 1: Practical CI and how it specifically supports no-memorization literacy in Japanese
Session 2: Cold Character reading demonstration: participants learn an unknown language and read in characters.
Session 3: Reading readiness for non-Roman alphabet scripts
Session 4: Cold Character Reading: Texts.
Session 5: Cold Character Reading: First Pass.
Session 6: Cold Character Reading: Subsequent whole-class readings
Session 7: Cold Character Reading: Consolidation, Practice and Homework
Session 8: Parallel texts and assessment
Move quickly from theory to real best practice in teaching emerging readers of Japanese. This webinar series contains content equivalent to two and a half days of in-person workshops. Private video replays will be available for at least 7 days, starting the Monday after each session.
We will be working with stories from Easy Japanese Stories Vol. 1 as a starting point to demonstrate how to modify existing materials to be effective in Cold Character Reading.
