Kyoto JALT:

Concept mapping in content-based classrooms

Date: Friday, January 19th, 2007 Time: 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Speaker: Heidi Evans and Todd Squires

Description:
Many Japanese university English language programs are moving towards content-based instruction. Confronted with unknown, specialist vocabulary and new concepts, students in content-based courses struggle with not only learning a new subject area but also learning the vocabulary linked to these concepts. Through the use of concept maps, teachers can provide students with a tool for learning new vocabulary, comprehending texts, and synthesizing and organizing new information in meaningful ways that personalize language and content learning.
