Complementing Reading with Comprehension Software

P. J. Wanner, P. A. Gardner

Tohoku University, Japan

This presentation provides details on how to add supplementary reading material to class materials such as English textbooks or extensive reading programs. Supplementary material such as closed exercises and short expositions are one way to see a student's development of reading comprehension. Exercises employing free online reading materials were successfully implemented in a large university classroom of up to 60 students effectively building reading comprehension skills. Likewise, surveys showed that students found the use of online materials interesting.
