Kobe JALT:

Process and Thought: Two Articles that have Shaped EFL Writing Instruction, and Stories for the Heart

Date: Sunday, September 29th, 2002 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Curtis Kelly, Heian Women's University

There will be two presentations today, both by Curtis Kelly, Heian Women's University.

  1. Process and Thought: Two Articles that have Shaped EFL Writing Instruction:
    Two paradigm-shaping articles have shaped the field of EFL writing instruction. One article introduced the concept of process, while the other defined contrastive rhetoric. Curtis Kelly will discuss the fascinating theories these articles have spawned, discuss how English and Japanese are organized differently, and give suggestions for how to teach organizations in class.
  2. Stories for the Heart:
    Stories are magic.They are more comprehensive than any other format, and they touch the learners' hearts. To understand the secret of their power we have to examine how our brains have evolved and the theory from psychology of "moral development." The presenter will discuss these theories and give you five heart-warming stories to try out in your own college or high school English classes.
