Okayama JALT:

Discourse Frames and Materials Development: What is the connection?

Date: Saturday, December 10th, 2011 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Mike Guest

From teaching basic self-introductions to professional interactions within specialized domains, setting up frames for discourse enables better learner comprehension, deeper internalization, and greater transferability of both language form and skills. This presentation/workshop is designed to help teachers use discourse frames to become more conscious of locating the language they want students to learn. Participants will have the opportunity to design discourse frames suited to their own teaching situations.
