Content-Based Instruction: A tale with two flavors

Date: Saturday, November 22nd, 2008 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Bobby Mamoru Takahashi and Stephen Shucart

Content-Based Instruction (CBI) is a methodology that utilizes a theme-based curriculum rather than focusing on the traditional forms, functions, situations or skills. We will examine two different types of CBI course: one a four-skills practical English course on the theme of global climate change, and the other a conversation course based on science fiction DVDs.

Both Bobby Mamoru Takahashi and Stephen Shucart teach at Akita Kenritsu University.
