Kobe JALT:

Potpourri Meeting (three presentations)

Date: Sunday, December 8th, 2002 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Matsumoto Toyoko, Hirouchi Hiroko and Michael Skelton

This special afternoon features three talks by three presenters.

  1. Double Object Construction and the Verb.
    Matsumoto Toyoko, Graduate student of Kobe City University of Foreign Studies.
    We can teach learners as follows: The sentence, "He told me a story." is correct but we can not say, "He said me hello." If our students ask us why, how can we explain it? There seems to be no clear rule on the realtionship between verbs and sentence stuructures. There are, however, some studies on this relationship. During this talk, Matsumoto will refer to this studies.
  2. Differences in Responses to Japanese & Australian Indirect Complaints.
    Hirouchi Hiroko, Sonoda Gakuin Women's University.
  3. Multiple Intelligences and the Language Teacher.
    Michael Skelton, Seiwa University.
    In the early 1980s Howard Gardner challenged the idea that intelligence is a fixed, unitary concept and proposed that we are intelligent in different ways. According to Gardner's theory we have at least eight intelligences varying in strength within each individual to make up his/her unique intelligence profile. Among the educational implications of this theory are that we all learn in different ways (and, if teachers, we tend to teach in a way that reflects our preferred intelligence). This presentation will offer a brief overview of multiple intelligence theory and then invite participants to investigate their own teaching style in the light of the theory.
