- TITLE: Japanese curriculum design with proficiency- and content-based instruction
This workshop addresses a Japanese language curriculum design with proficiency- and content-based instruction. First, it will present key concepts of curriculum design, followed by exploring language proficiency- and content-based instruction with their strength and challenges and suggestions. Then, it will provide a concrete example of how to teach intermediate/advanced level Japanese using “Powering Up Your Japanese through Case Studies: Intermediate and Advanced Japanese” published in 2014 by the Japan Times. In the afternoon, participants will engage in a jigsaw task taking a learner’s role, reflecting its effectiveness and challenges. They will then create their own a unit plan and share it at the workshop.
They have WiFi that provides guests with internet access. If you will be using a laptop whose battery might not last the whole meeting, you might wish to bring an extension cord.
Drinks (coffee, tea) and light breakfast (scones, cookies, and fruits) will be provided for free. For those who asked us to reserve a bento for $10.00, your bento will be provided for lunch.
If you ordered a bento, please bring $10 in cash for your bento. You can also pay by check.
We will have 60 min for a networking lunch. We encourage you to take this time to get to know your fellow OATJ members and meet some new educators!
