Yasashii Textbook

A sample of 8 pages of text written by Yamamoto-sensei compared to the four pages of reformatted and edited text containing the same information.  

In 2008, I edited and formatted a Japanese college textbook for English learners written by one of Utah Valley University’s professors: Chinami Yamamoto, Ph.D. M.Ed. The goal was to allow native English speakers feel more comfortable with the content and eliminate white space. By decreasing the number of pages needed, we decreased the cost of the textbook for students.
