Cold Character Reading for Japanese

This series of webinars gives a comprehensive overview on how to effectively use the Cold Character Reading method to teach Japanese literacy without memorization. Please double-check the email on your Squid For Brains account -- all messages will go to that e-mail.

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 4Cold Character Reading: Texts.

Session 5Cold 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.
