Nagasaki JALT:

Day One: Strategies for Successful First-Day Classes

Date: Sunday, March 25th, 2001 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Malcolm Swanson, TLT Editor and Kinki University

The first day with any class is arguably the most important, for it is here that both learners and teachers make most of their decisions about how much they will involve themselves in that course. This workshop will examine strategies for making Day One classes more successful. Attendees will define what they consider to be a successful first class, and discuss what they do in their classes. Strategies that the presenter has used that assist learners to accept responsibility right from the start will also be presented. These include goal setting, defining responsibilities and routines, and cooperative syllabus design.
