Yamagata JALT:

Addressing Relevance and Motivation

Date: Sunday, October 6th, 2002 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Jonah Glick (Pearson Education Japan)

Description:
Addressing Relevance and Motivation Motivation is crucial for successful learning. What techniques should we employ to encourage motivation and maximize learning? Two ways are: to ensure learners talk about what interests them; and to teach language for specific real-world functions. High-interest, relevant content, presented at an appropriate level, and clear, achievable task-based activities, will further enhance learning and involvement. This presentation will explore these and other issues. Activities will be drawn from appropriate new materials from Longman.
