The Growing Trend of Reading Movements in Japan: Animacion a la Lectura, Ten-Minutes Reading in the Morning, and Reading Aloud by Parents.
Adachi, Sachiko
This study examines the growing trend of reading movements in Japan and their origins. There are three main movements: Animacion a la Lectura; Ten-Minutes Reading in the Morning; and Reading Aloud by Parents in schools. This paper reports on the three movements from a review of the literature, personal observations, and practice. The paper discusses the historical and cultural background in Japan to inquire into relationships between these movements and systems or curricula of reading education. It states that three questions were used as research issues: (1) What should be done to promote students' reading regularly in daily life? (2) What should be done to encourage students to read critically? and (3) What should be done to change the curricula of the teaching of reading? It also states that the aim is to change the teaching of reading in Japan in the near future through practice in the growing trend of reading movements. (NKA)
