Chiba JALT:

1. Using song lyrics for reading content words with young learners; 2. Cartoons, global issues and young learners

Date: Sunday, January 28th, 2007 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: 1. Richard Barber, Toyo Gakuen University; 2. Sarah Louise Birchley, Toyo Gakuen University

Presentation 1 will demonstrate how, after getting to grips with the meaning of a song, young learners do various activities to read the form. Step-by-step, they work together to build up to reading the content words in the lyrics. Presentation 2 will explore how cartoons can be used successfully with young learners to develop their critical thinking skills, encourage creativity and develop an awareness of global issues. Participants will leave with an activity that they can adapt to fit a variety of levels.
