Kobe JALT:

10 Principles of TBLT Activity Design

Date: Saturday, April 20th, 2019 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Curtis Kelly

Join Kobe JALT on Saturday, April 20th as we welcome our first speaker of the 2019-2020 academic year, Dr. Curtis Kelly! His presentation is titled "Ten Principles of TBLT Activity Design." TBLT makes English a conduit rather than a target, so it begs for well-crafted activities. Activities that "Pull" instead of "Push" is the true test of good lesson design and the first of ten principles the presenter will offer. The principles, discovered during decades of textbook writing, provide guidance in engaging students, controlling language targets, and solving typical class management problems, such as keeping learners in the target language. Take-home activities will also be provided.

This presentation will be followed by dinner at The Sky Buffet, a short walk from the venue, from 5:30pm. Please click this link to RSVP for the dinner. Please RSVP by April 13th! Kobe JALT hopes to see many of you there for a night of TBLT, dinner, and networking!
