Nagano JALT:

Childrens' Storytelling Through Kamishibai

Date: Sunday, August 31st, 2003 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:45 PM

Speaker: Taeko Okamoto

Taeko Okamoto, currently an ESL consultant working in the USA, will give a talk on the practical use of Japanese "kamishibai" as a means to tell English stories to people of all ages. Taeko has much experience in this important field both in the USA and Japan, on T.V. and at various EFL/ESL institutions. In this presentation she will show how the art of Kamishibai picture storytelling can be implemented in ESL/EFL teaching with ready-made commercialized kamishibai stories, magazine pictures, hand-drawn pictures, and photos. She will demonstrate how all four skills can be integrated into the storytelling lesson. We will also have the opportunity to enjoy live Kamishibai storytelling by this popular presenter-storyteller.
