Nara JALT:

Teaching English Through Drama

Date: Saturday, May 17th, 2008 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Kathy Emori

Teaching English through drama is gaining momentum in the EFL community, and with good reason. With the right approach, drama techniques can be an effective way to help students loosen up, think outside the box, have fun whle being creative, and explore new expressive possibilities--all in English! In this workshop, a variety of EFL-appropriate drama activities will be introduced and participants will take part as actors and educators. Discussions on how to incorporate these into any type or level classroom will allow participants to take ideas and make them accessible to their situations.

Kathi Emori has been teaching English in Japan for over 10 years. Having served as an ALT on the JET Program , Independent Learning Director at Nagoya Women's University and as a Coordinator of Creative Expression Curriculum, Kathi has used drama in the classroom at all ages and levels. Currently, she is working on writing scripts and exploring further drama related research in second language acquisition.
