Kobe JALT:

Video-Based Pragmatics Course

Date: Saturday, June 25th, 2005 Time: 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Speaker: John Rylander and Donna Tatsuki

John Rylander and Donna Tatsuki describe a course that targets false-beginner to low-intermediate university students ranging from first to fourth-year students at a women's university in Kobe. The course design was structured around a 14-week semester with one 90-minute class per week. Included in this presentation will be background information on the evolution of the course materials and pedagogical theories underpinning the use and construction of various elements within the course. As part of the example lesson, audience members will be taught using a combination of video-based examples of speech acts taken from various media sources and edited for instructional purposes, and a set of guided discovery worksheets to stimulate pair/group discussion and to focus learner attention on the 1) pragmalinguistic forms realized within the clips and 2) sociopragmatic elements relevant to the setting.
