Date and Time: 
Saturday, 18 April 2009 - 2:00pm - 5:00pm

All students in Japan have some background in poetry
that can be utilized as a springboard for classroom
activities. Poetry can be an occasional classroom
resource material, or the basis for an entire content
course in a foreign language. Jane Joritz-Nakagawa
will bring poems and techniques that can be used at a
variety of language levels, and participants will
brainstorm how they can use poems effectively in their
own classrooms.
Jane Joritz-Nakagawa is a long time resident of Japan
who currently works as associate professor at Aichi
University of Education. She has taught for twenty
years, most of that in Japanese universities.
