Saitama JALT:

Implementing an Effective Program Using English Notebook

Date: Sunday, October 11th, 2009 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:45 PM

Speaker: Laura Blefgen-Togashi and Setsuko Terasaki

Conducting Foreign Language Activity Classes in public elementary schools should include fun, but learning must be happening. It is our job as teachers to provide children with a program that encourages, facilitates and is conducive to language learning. In 2002, in coordination with the local Board of Education in Kunitachi City, the presenter began working at several public elementary schools designing and implementing two programs, "Bamboo Shoots" for grade 5 students and "Dragonflies" for grade 6 students. From this April, the presenter combined these two programs with the Ministry of Education's "English Notebook" and is presently conducting lessons. In this workshop, the presenter will explain and demonstrate how best to conduct lessons effectively using "English Notebook". At the same time, she will present various ways to improve upon specific lessons that will enhance the entire learning process. This workshop will be presented in both English and Japanese.
