Saitama JALT:

Cengage Learning presents Andy Boon

Date: Sunday, September 25th, 2016 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Andy Boon

Dr. Boon will be speaking on two topics at this event, which is sponsored by Cengage Learning.

  1. Inspire or Perspire? Getting Students Speaking
    This presentation will introduce the audience to a number of strategies that can help break the silence in the Japanese classroom and get students engaging in meaningful communication. Inspire is a listening and speaking course with additional content reading designed to create a richer speaking experience.
  2. Instruction-giving: Effective Procedural Instructions
    Providing students with effective procedural instructions is important for facilitating understanding and encouraging successful learning outcomes in our classes. This presentation examines the communication process between teacher and students during instruction-giving and describes a number of classroom instances where miscommunication took place. After analyzing the nature of these misunderstandings, different methods of issuing task directions in lessons are suggested.

For the full abstract for both topics as well as Dr. Boon's biography, please see Saitama JALT's page for this event.
