Fukuoka JALT:

Communication Spotlight: Rationalizations and Developments

Date: Saturday, July 24th, 2010 Time: 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Speaker: Alastair Graham-Marr

Over the past several years, the Communication Spotlight textbook series has been growing quickly in the Japanese EFL market, representing a break from some of the more standard texts. In this presentation, the author will share his experiences in the process of developing the textbook. He will elucidate some of the deeper reasons behind the choice of activities, and discuss some of the alternative ways that other teachers have been applying the text to positive effect. Finally, he will discuss how the text and his own teaching approach has changed through the development process, and talk about changes currently in the works. The discussion will conclude with questions and concerns regarding the text from the floor.
