Come hear three 30-minute presentations on a range of topics. The presenters are all MA Postgraduates from Okayama University.
- Collaborative listening: Using dictogloss tasks to foster learners' language development.
Presenter: Chikako Shimobayashi.
The presenter made a hypothesis that collaborative work was more effective than individual work and designed an experiment so that learners performed it individually and then collaboratively on two kinds of dictogloss tasks.
- The role of L1 in Japanese non-native teachers' language classrooms: An analysis of codeswitching behaviors.
Presenter: Kyoko Burden.
This study reveals how effectively non-native-speaking English teachers code-switched into Japanese in conversation-based lessons. Four Japanese teachers of English were observed and video-recorded, and analysis reveals three code-switching mechanisms identified among the teachers: switching on students' signals, spontaneous switching, and intentional switching.
- A story-based approach to teaching English to primary school children.
Presenter: Noriko Matsuda.
This is a short report of an approach based on children's stories, which investigated the listening comprehension of 11 sixth graders in an elementary school.
