Fukuoka JALT:

Creating and Using Dialogues Productively

Date: Saturday, May 28th, 2005 Time: 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Speaker: Mike Guest, Miyazaki Medical College

Dialogues, both written and spoken, are a regular feature of language learning classrooms. However, a poorly-written or poorly-utilized dialogue can be detrimental to language learning development, as well as being a waste of energy for students and teachers. In this workshop, Mike Guest will demonstrate some guidelines and principles from which productive and meaningful dialogues can be created. These include considerations such as clarifying environmental factors of a text, utilizing appropriate discourse signals, and indicating the psychological condition of the participants. Guest will also provide concrete suggestions as to how dialogues can be incorporated into more extended activities such as role-plays, skits or other projects.
