Niigata JALT:

Adapting Textbook Activities On the Spot

Date: Sunday, June 23rd, 2002 Time: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Speaker: Rebecca Arthur, Poole Gakuin University

Despite the many benefits of using a textbook, there are bound to be mismatches between what the textbook has to offer and what the students need. In this workshop a variety of ways to adapt textbook activities so they are more suitable will be presented and practiced. These adaptations can be done on the spot, with almost no preparation. These adaptations can be made to activities of almost any level.
