Niigata JALT:

My Article

Date: Saturday, October 8th, 2011 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Various speakers

In the past, Niigata JALT has hosted My Share events where members explain a favorite classroom activity. In that spirit, this time we will be hosting a "My Article" exchange where members share an article or book that has influ-enced their teaching or made them think about what might be possible in the classroom.

Language Teaching is a field that is full of creative approaches (activities, games, music, drama, approaches to learn-ing, class management and group dynamics, e-learning, etc). There is almost too much to keep an eye on everything. The field is also full of magazines and journals and other chances to learn about new ideas. We each have our own fa-vorites. Ours are articles from The Language Teacher, English Teaching Journal and ETJ on-line. What are yours?

In this event, we hope that up to 10 members will take about 10 minutes to informally profile an article (or even a book) that they have recently read or that has been a long-time influence. You could tell us what the article was about, why you found it intriguing or inspirational, how it worked (if you tried to apply the idea), or anything else about it. There is no need to prepare a presentation, we are hoping for an informal sharing of ideas.
