次回の児童英語ワークショップ ~English Teaching Workshop~

Onlineworkshop Series 2

 このワークショップでは子どもの英語指導についてのさまざまなテーマを取り上げます。会場に来る以外に、遠隔地からコンピュータを使ってインターネット参加ができます。オンサイト会場では、ファシリテーターや参加者が紹介するゲームやアクティビティーを実際に体験しテーマについて考えます。会場に来て、あるいは遠隔地から、同じ仕事をする仲間といっしょに自らの指導を振り返る機会に参加してみませんか。

目的:指導技術の向上、教材と指導法に関する情報交換、指導者同士の交流

1. 違いを超えて
教える場所、所属、国籍、人種、経験年数、指導法、教育理念、使用教材などのいろいろな違いを超えて、よりよい子どもの英語指導法と教材を追求する場を設ける。
2. 子どもの立場で考える
特定の教材の販売や指導法の推進を目的とするのではなく、子どもにとってよい指導法と教材について考えたり、意見交換をしたりして、指導技術の向上をはかり自己研鑽の機会を持つ。
3. コミュニケーションとしての英語を楽しく
絵本、歌、アクティビティー、ゲームなどを通して、子どもの年齢とレベルにあった方法でコミュニケーションとしての英語を楽しく習得できるような指導を考える。
