Nagasaki JALT:

Gender in Language; and Giving Peace Studies A Chance.

Date: Saturday, July 28th, 2007 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Clem Hiemstra, Sasebo/Imari, and Tim Allan, Kwassui Women's College.

Our summer meeting will be about Global Issues and Content-Based Instruction through two perspectives. In one half of the meeting, Hiemstra will guide us through a session on the topic of gender and language. Working in small groups, we will list some of the obvious examples where we can see gender at work in language, comparing the Japanese examples with the English ones, and then discussing some of our underlying values.

In the other half of the meeting, Allan will introduce some activities, rationales, and materials for local peace studies classes applicable for Nagasaki as well as for anywhere else. All welcome for our sixth meeting of the year! Please note that this meeting coincides with the weekend of the Nagasaki Port Summer Festival...and is our last meeting until October 14!
