Chiba JALT:

Two presentations: Children, and Debate

Date: Sunday, December 7th, 2003 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Ali Taylor and Nobuyuki Maeda, Longman ELT

Two presentations today. The first is Your Students will Cheer for English with Hip Hip Hooray! Children love and are comfortable with stories. They inspire the imagination and breathe life into the classroom. Yet this popular tool of language learning is often regulated to the role of supplementary or filler material. Exploring the benefits and practicalities of integrating story-based curricula with phonics, TPR, games, activities and songs, we will look at the Perfect Partner to make you students cheer for English -- Hip Hip Hooray!
Ali works at Longman as a Children's Material Consultant in the ELT Department. Throughout Japan she gives numerous Teacher Training workshops on Young Learner themes.
The second presentation today is Impact Values: Critical Thinking and Real Debate. Nobuyuki Maeda will show how teachers can select and present controversial high-interest topics to generate discussion by providing strategies to allow 'average' students to engage in real debate.
