Akita JALT:

DramaWorks presents PopStars and Star Taxi

Date: Saturday, October 19th, 2002 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Kristie Collins of the DramaWorks Team

The DramaWorks team, authors of textbooks Star Taxi (2000) and PopStars (2002), demonstrate the use of drama techniques in EFL classrooms. This method has been used successfully in secondary and higher education, and would appeal to teachers in these areas. Both textbooks are stories told in 20 scenes of dialogue. They are easy and fun to use, and do not require any drama experience, props or special acting ability. They are complete courses, and include warm-ups, language activities and teacher's notes. They may also be used as supplements. This will be a workshop-style, participatory presentation.

Organization: Akita Chapter of the Japan Association for Language Teaching (Akita JALT)

Venue: GH-300, MSU-A (Minnesota State University Akita)
