ETJ Saitama:

Drawing on Japanese Children's Daily Lives

Date: Sunday, March 2nd, 2008 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Laura Blefgen-Togashi

This workshop will demonstrate how teachers can use elements of the children's surrounding environment and their daily lives to create lessons that are both meaningful and relevant. By focusing and drawing on the lessons of "The Four Seasons" and "The Weather", many activities which are highly motivating, stimulating and require active student involvement will be introduced. These practical ideas are suitable and adaptable for all classroom learning situations.
