Saitama JALT:

(1) Why Teaching Listening is Vital; (2) Flipping the Class Through Literature Circles

Date: Sunday, July 31st, 2016 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Alastair Graham-Marr (ABAX ELT Publishing)

Mr. Graham-Marr will be speaking on two topics at this event, which is being co-produced with ABAX ELT Publishing.

  1. Why Teaching Listening is Vital
    Learners often lack an understanding of how English is actually spoken, impeding comprehension. Japanese learners are often unable to hear words that they know! Presented is a look at how listening should be taught.
  2. Flipping the Class Through Literature Circles
    Flipping the classroom through literature circles is an effective mechanism for maximizing student talking time and giving your students effective study time at home. This presentation reviews the procedures and shows how flipping the class might optimize learning.

For the full abstract for both topics, please see Saitama JALT's website events page.
