Moving From "Learning to Read" to "Reading to Learn" in Japanese

Listed in: Asian Languages and Civilizations, as JAPA-12


Wako Tawa (Sections 01 and 02)


This course will be a continuation of Japanese 11. Various genres of writing and film, of longer and increased difficulty levels, will be used to develop a high proficiency level of reading, writing, speaking, and listening throughout the semester. At this level, the students should gradually be moving from “learning to read” to “reading to learn.” This important progression will be guided carefully by the instructor. Small groups based on the students’ proficiency levels will be formed, so that instruction accords with the needs of each group. Students will be required to practice with the materials that are on the course website at the college. Two group meetings and two individualized or small group evaluations per week are normally required throughout the semester.

Requisite: Japanese 11 or equivalent. Spring semester.  Professor Tawa.
