Extensive Reading Empowers Autonomous Learners: What it is and how it works


Location: 125 Classroom Hesburgh Library

Extensive reading (ER) is the independent reading of many, various, self-selected, easy materials (Day & Bamford, 2004). It is different from the traditional, teacher-centered intensive reading. Learn how ER can be a robust and flexible method for encouraging autonomous learning, serve increasingly diverse groups of students, satisfy their individual needs and provide an opportunity for teachers to reflect on their own teaching.
Professor Noriko Hanabusa has conducted workshops and given invited talks about ER in the US, Europe, and Asia. She has also published articles and conference proceedings on this student-centered approach. Let her teach you how you might incorporate ER into your own curricula.
