East Shikoku JALT:

Sausage and Cheese: Games in the Elementary School English Classroom

Date: Saturday, July 5th, 2008 Time: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Speaker: Stan Pederson, Kumamoto University

Like sausage and cheese, language can be served up in chunks or slices. When our learners start with chunks, they face the problem of cutting them into slices later so they can use them to say exactly what they want. When they begin with slices they face the challenge of putting them together into larger chunks they can use at once. Games can act as a knife, cutting up chunks of language, or they can act as a skewer, putting smaller bits together in a tasty combination. His workshop will explore the teaching choices available and display the full range of possibilities in demonstrations of teaching games.

Stan Pederson is a specialist in young learner FL education and assessment.
