Yokohama JALT:

Classroom Rubrics: How to Increase Authentic Student-Student Communication in the Classroom

Date: Wednesday, February 14th, 2001 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Dave Hough

This workshop looks at rubrics (also known as metalanguage or simply "classroom language") as a place where teachers can increase the amount of time spent on authentic communication in the classroom. They can do this while continuing to use their current textbook. The presenter will show various video clips which demonstrate how he does this with university science majors whose interest and proficiency are generally low.
