The Reading Matrix
The Reading Matrix: An International Online Journal is a peer-reviewed professional journal with an editorial board of scholars in the fields of second language acquisition and applied linguistics. It explores issues related to second language learning, teaching, and research, specifically in the area of L2 reading. The journal publishes articles, and book reviews, and is published twice a year exclusively on the web.
Teaching Reading to Adult Second Language Learners is designed to serve as a resource for pre- and in-service teachers of reading and ESL. It can also serve as a university textbook on L2 reading methods, reading instruction, or in teacher preparation courses that focus on reading. This book provides the perfect balance of both theory and practice, making it reader-friendly for teachers, graduate students, and researchers.
The Reading Matrix has previously hosted two online conferences on Second Language Teaching and Research. The conference attracted over 150 individuals from around the globe. Syncronous chat discussions in virtual conference rooms and the social foyer allowed delegates to participate in live interactive discussions with the presenter and other attendees. The next conferences will be Fall 2013 so stay tuned for upcoming details.
