Nagoya JALT:

Cooperative Structures and Language Learning

Date: Monday, September 15th, 2003 Time: 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Spencer Kagan

Cooperative learning is a natural catalyst for language learning. Cooperative learning structures can be incorporated easily as part of any lesson, with a powerful mpact on comprehensible input and frequency of language output opportunities. Perhaps most importantly, the cooperative structures reduce the affective filter and provide a positive, natural context for language learning. Come learn a range of simple cooperative learning structures that can be included in any lesson to promote language learning, including Draw-A-Gambit, Three Pair Share and Same Different.
