Kagoshima JALT:

Activities for Upper Grade Kids in Elementary School English

Date: Sunday, January 28th, 2007 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Tom Merner

The main goal of English Activities in Elementary School is to develop the children's positive attitude to try and communicate with others. There are various efforts in trying to develop activities and lessons to realize this goal. However, it is often very difficult to design activities to draw the attention and interest from the upper grade children in elementary school. In this workshop, the presenter will introduce activities that have been designed based on topics and themes that interest such upper grade children and collected in the Junior Columbus 21 series (Mitsumura Tosho). In the latter half of the workshop, participants will be asked to work in groups and actually conduct such activities.

Tom Merner has taught English to students of various age groups in Japan for over 20 years. Currently lecturer at Reitaku University and part-time English instructor at Showa Women's University attached Showa Elementary School and Showa Junior High School. He is a member of program production committee for NHK "Super Eigorian" and "Eigorian 3". Tom is a Co-author of the Junior Columbus 21 series (Mitsumura Tosho). He also conducts teacher training for Elementary School English Activities for various cities and schools across Japan.
