Extended Reading (Tadoku) seminar

A couple of Seiritsu Gakuen teachers took part in a seminar on Sunday for extended reading. The gentleman that is responsible for spreading Tadoku in Japan holds several seminars every year. This was the sixth annual summer seminar.

Extended reading is held in all different types of languages and all over the world. We had several participants who came from overseas.

One of the cool little ideas that we took away from the seminar was the challenge for students to find hidden objects in the books. The ORT (Oxford Reading Tree) book series has glasses and dog bones hidden throughout their stories.

I have taken a picture with a few pages from a few books. Can you see the glasses?
