Iwate-Aomori JALT:

The ABC of Student Speaking

Date: Sunday, January 28th, 2007 Time: 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Speaker: Catlin Evans, Brian Evans and Adam McCahon

The ABC team (Adam/Brian/Catlin) will explore the often problematic question of student speaking and suggest ways to increase the quantity and quality of student use of spoken language. Adam will focus on preschoolers to elementary students, Brian will focus on junior high and high school students and Catlin will discuss teaching conversation strategies to college students. The ideas presented can be adapted and used for language learners of all ages. The presentation would be of interest to all teachers of English who are trying to improve their students' English speaking skills.

Adam McCahon is a teacher at Prince Eibei Gakuin, an eikaiwa school in Morioka. He is particularly known for his skill with teaching preschoolers and young primaries.

Brian Evans is a 20 year veteran of high school teaching in Australia and has taught ESL in a variety of situations in Morioka for the past four years.

Catlin Evans teaches at Morioka Junior College.
