Yokohama JALT:

Elementary School English Activities: Mutual Benefits of University Students' Teaching Support

Date: Sunday, October 18th, 2009 Time: 1:15 PM - 4:15 PM

Speaker: Yuri Hosoda (Kanagawa Uni.), David Aline (Kanagawa Uni.), Masato Sugimoto and Saori Maekawa (Kanagawa Uni. students), and Seiji Nagumo (Yokohama City Nishiterao Daini Elementary)

This forum is concerned with the supporter system in which university students act as volunteer teachers for English activity classes in elementary schools in Yokohama, and examines the experiences of those supporters both through a longitudinal fine-grained conversation analysis of changes in assessments, and directives; and through the eyes of the volunteers themselves in terms of their perceived roles, learning experiences, application of training. As discussant we are joined by the school principal.
