Osaka JALT:

Group-Building in the Classroom

Date: Sunday, July 9th, 2006 Time: 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Warren Decker

As teachers, how can we learn or at least use all of our students' names? How can we help our students feel comfortable with us and with each other? How can we encourage them to work together and help each other?

This is a workshop for anyone interested in these questions. We will start with some simple classroom name games, progressing through to increasingly challenging team work activities. The latter portion of the workshop is open for a discussion and idea exchange.

This workshop will feature lots of active participation, so please wear comfortable clothing, and come prepared to share your favorite name learning and group-building activities with everyone else.
