Yokohama JALT:

Collaborative Learning Through Debates

Date: Sunday, May 8th, 2005 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Chantal Hemmi, British Council

This session is a hands-on workshop on the language of debates. Chantal Hemmi will show how the language of debates could be practiced using a game that incorporates topics of interest to students. After that, Hemmi will present research results from a small-scale interpretive research project that looked at what the students learned through the debate activity. The students in the research were part of two intermediate classes at Sophia University. The speaker, Chantal Hemmi (EdD TEFL), is a full-time teacher at the British Council and is currently coordinating a new English program for Morimura Gakuen Elementary School.
