abstract

This paper describes the program of advanced-level reading lessons carried out in the Department of Japanese Studies at Hamburg University in 2014. We will first sketch a framework of the lesson. To enable students to study autonomously, we began to compile a portfolio in order to look back on studies throughout the semester, focusing on reading comprehension and presentations during lessons. In this paper, we will describe  the structure of this portfolio and give an overview of individual students’ goals and reflections of the semester as a whole, as well as the records that each student kept of their preparation for and observations regarding presentation assignments.
