Saitama JALT:

Using Photocopiable Materials to Improve Speaking Fluency

Date: Sunday, June 12th, 2011 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Terry Yearly

Although photocopiable worksheets are very cheap and easy to use, they don't seem to be popular with teachers. Using my own examples, I will first show how photocopiable worksheets can be developed far beyond their publishers' descriptions. Then attendees will examine some worksheets and brainstorm ideas for expanding their use. Finally, we will discuss our ideas.

Bio: Terry has been teaching EFL for ten years. He currently teaches at an exam prep school, a high school, and a university in Tokyo. He is also an MA TESOL candidate at Teachers College Columbia, the Programme Chair for Yokohama JALT, and the Coordinator for ETJ Tokyo.
