Gifu Chapter

Creating Classroom Props for Language Learning

Date and Time: 
Saturday, 21 February 2009 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Speaker: 
David Stephens

Students learn more when they are interested and their curiosity is aroused. As language teachers, it can be difficult to create lessons that make language points challenging and engaging. However, teaching new vocabulary and language points can be enhanced using interesting tools such as magic, puppetry, 3D effects, and unique props. Stephens will share some interesting perspectives that illustrate how emotions and different teaching methods can influence various types of learners.
