Kobe JALT:

Themed Tasks for the Communicative Classroom

Date: Saturday, May 24th, 2008 Time: 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Speaker: Marcos Benevides

Marcos Benevides will demonstrate a strong task-based approach to communicative teaching. This will be based on his co-authored title, Widgets (2008 Longman), but will also be relevant to teachers seeking to develop their own task-based materials. Focusing on classroom practice, and featuring relevant video examples, the presenter will encourage teachers to view fluency-building, motivation and classroom management from a new perspective.

This presentation is aimed at teachers of young adults in classes of 12-40 students (ie: senior high school and college/university). However, junior high school and conversation school teachers may also find it informative.
