English Teacher Training

This blog is designed for my English Teaching Methodologies course at a University in Japan. I hope to use these blogs as a forum 1) to exchange ideas about how we can address the problems facing teachers of English in Japan 2) for students to understand the challenges they will face during their teaching practicum 3) learn from experienced English teachers and eachother about good English language teaching.

Two Tasks for Next Week

Task 1:

In your blog please write which of the Key Points for teaching grammar, ideas for introducing new grammar, ideas for practicing new grammar, and ideas for communicative activities were useful and why you thought so. Also, please write which ideas you did not think were useful and why you thought so.
Please have this done by Wednesday, June 29, 5:00 PM.
I will write my own reflection of last week's lesson in my next entry.

Task 2

I have started a new group blog called http://discussenglish.blogspot.com/ .

As this is a group blog, anyone who is a member can make a post. You all should have received an e-mail asking if you would like to become a member of this blog and telling you how to register. Please say yes and register!

In my first post, I have asked current English teachers to answer the following question:
What about being an English teacher do you like the most and what do you like the least?

The teachers will answer the question as a comment to the first post. I would like you to write responses to the English teachers' answers as a comment.

Please have this done by Wednesday, June 29, 5:00 PM.

Also, if you have any other questions you would like to ask the English teachers please make a new post (投稿). As a member of the group blog, you are allowed to make posts.
