Nagano JALT:

Developing Output Skills through Interactive Art Boards (Kinesthetic-Tactile Learning)

Date: Saturday, November 30th, 2013 Time: 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Speaker: Trevor Joseph (Kings Road School of English)

Trevor Joseph writes, "Basically I am going to talk about how I approach the study requirements to prepare children for the Cambridge Young Learners. I will talk about these exams especially from the point of view of the speaking test. I will show a video of how I put together my Activity Boards, the concept behind the material and my evaluation of the material from a classroom perspective. The presentation will focus on how to promote output."

Trevor Joseph owns his own very successful language school in Akasaka, Tokyo, called "King's Road School of English", where he teaches young and old alike. The school has a very cosmopolitan student intake and is very outward looking venture, as their alumni often take up teriary education overseas. The school is a Preparation Centre for Cambridge English Language Assessment and holds all levels of exams twice a year. Trevor is passionate about his students and his teaching, and has most recently designed a fabulous 'walk in' learning environment for YLs. He has previously written, illustrated & self-published an alphabet book for young learners in hardback. With over 20 years teaching experience in Tokyo, Trevor is an inspiring educator who up until now has avoided making presentations....
