Fukuoka JALT:

Global Education: Voices from the Invisible World

Date: Saturday, July 13th, 2002 Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Speaker: John Small, Kumamoto Gakuen University

Textbooks present a sterilized view of the world. Why not provide students with information about street children in Brazil, factory slaves in Pakistan, or child prostitutes in Thailand? The presenter will argue that this world should not remain invisible, that it is profoundly connected to our world of material comfort, and that students respond positively to these topics. Four skills teaching materials for the conversation classroom from a non-profit, self-published text will be presented.

Organization: Fukuoka Chapter of the Japan Association for Language Teaching (Fukuoka JALT)

Cost: JALT Members: free
Non-members: 1000 yen
