Limited Capacity seats available

Reading in English and reading in Arabic have a lot of differences. The teaching of reading in Arabic will be compared to the teaching in English. Word recognition studies done in Englsih and Arabic show that L1 Arabic Learners use clearly identifiable L1 processing devices such as whole word recognition strategies and have difficulties in pre-lexical ESL word recognition. Classroom implications for how to teach reading to Arab students will be discussed in this session.
