A Critical Reading Project: Steps to Independent Academic Reading Skills

N. Naganuma, C. Brown

Akita International University, Japan

This presentation aims to illustrate how the EAP reading curriculum of an English-medium university in Japan prepares students to read authentic academic materials critically and with confidence. The presenters will also share analysis of data retrieved from an end-of-semester free-writing task about the final academic journal reading project, and from follow-up interviews with learners, which demonstrate learners' perceptions of and insights into their learning experiences. Presentation participants will encounter a successful model, demonstrating how students can develop independence in their acquisition of critical reading skills, and will consider ways in which instructors can better facilitate reading success in EAP programs.
