The role of teacher in a Tadoku classroom is:
1. To have a lot of easy books ready at their student’s levels, 2. To keep a careful watch over the progress of each student. 3. To see that Four Rules are observed.
But the thing to bear in mind at all times in a Tadoku classroom is ‘to avoid teaching’! The ‘teacher’ will know what this means, once the students become completely focused in reading Japanese Graded Readers and start to absorb Japanese en masse.
