Hiroshima JALT:

Textbooks, Tasks, and Fluency

Date: Sunday, May 20th, 2012 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Theron Muller

There will be two parts in this workshop. In the first part, Theron will explain how he adapts textbook activities to make them more task-like. Participants are encouraged to bring the textbooks they teach with to consider how they can adapt activities for their own classrooms.

The second part of this workshop comes out of Theron's involvement as lead editor in "Fluency in EFL", a book whose manuscript is still under preparation. Participants will explore definitions of fluency, then will move to sharing practical tasks to promote a focus on fluency among Japanese students.
