Sendai JALT:

English Education in Elementary Schools: New Challenges, New Ideas

Date: Sunday, February 27th, 2011 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Iain Campbell and Sendai ALTs

The February meeting will look closely at the state of English education in Japanese elementary schools. The Sendai Board of Education has always been a strong supporter of English education, but recent changes coming at a time of scarce economic resources are creating some creative, yet imperfect solutions. We will examine what the Ministry of Education is mandating; how the elementary schools are meeting these requirements; what materials are being used, and how the Sendai Board of Education is supporting its elementary schools and its teachers. Participants will have the opportunity to listen to representatives from the Sendai BoE and Sendai elementary schools. There will also be a discussion, and a chance for attendees to examine the materials, offer their opinions, and ask questions directly to those involved with this large undertaking.
