Brett Walter (Hiroshima University)
Sunday, 10 July 2016 - 3:00pm - 5:00pm

In a lot of language classrooms, tasks are often developed that are little more than drills, having students repeat the same phrase multiple times while only replacing one or two key vocabulary words and drilling only for the sake of drilling. But recent Second Language Acquisition research has shown that effective tasks are activities that structure interaction among participants and use language for an outcome that is both concrete and focuses on the exchange of meaning. Participants in this workshop will learn about and develop different types of tasks that have a communicative purpose driving them. For details, see http://hiroshima-jalt.org

Sunday, 11 September 2016 - 3:00pm - 5:00pm

Some children learning English in Japan are very reticent; they are quiet and not used to speaking up. How can such reticent students have a fair and equal chance of participating and succeeding ? The aims of this presentation/workshop are twofold: (1) to present and discuss the methods and results of an Action Research (AR) project which the presenter conducted, focusing on teacher talk and interactional strategies in several Japanese elementary schools, and (2) to work together to identify common problematic situations or issues among workshop participants’ particular teaching contexts, and then brainstorm ways of addressing these issues using an AR approach.
