Iwate-Aomori JALT:

Intensively Extensive: How my experience as an ESL learner has contributed to my teaching and writing

Date: Sunday, April 25th, 2010 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Marcos Benevides

Marcos will present his personal story as a language learner and demonstrate the impact it has made on his classroom practice as well as on his material writing. He will suggest how all teachers can directly, immediately--and often surprisingly--benefit from a careful autobiographical exploration of their own learning experiences.

Benevides is an assistant professor at J. F. Oberlin University in Tokyo, and the co-author of popular ELT titles "Fiction in Action: Whodunit" (ABAX, 2010) and "Widgets: A task-based course in practical English" (Pearson, 2008).
