Toyohashi JALT:

Teach the Brain, Not the Intellect

Date: Sunday, July 6th, 2003 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Marshall R. Childs

To be successful at language teaching, teachers must understand what happens in students' minds. Learning through the intellect is a small part of language learning. The larger part takes place subconsciously, in the part of the mind that is full of passions, sounds, rhythms, and dreams. The teacher, as coach rather than lecturer, can improve his or her success by understanding what goes on in students' brains and by encouraging effective learning activities.
