JALT Meeting: Grammar And Reading Base For Improving Overall English Abilities And Using Sign Language In The Language-teaching Classroom

Author:Author unknown, Issue: September 2002, Topic: Speeches

The Japan Association for Language Teaching (JALT) welcomes you to 2 presentations:

  1. Grammar and Reading: Base for Improving Overall English Abilities by Takeshige Nakano
  2. Using Sign Language in the Language-teaching Classroom by Mariko Miyao, Cecilia Ikeguchi and Martin Pauly

Deaf and hard-of-hearing students are entering regular mainstream schools and mainstream society. A knowledge of Sign Language may aid teachers and hearing students in communicating with these students and for creating a more friendly environment for them. Three teachers, who are neither specialists in Deaf Education nor experts at Sign Language, will demonstrate some strategies for introducing Sign Language into the classroom.

Who is welcome?
Some have been under the impression that attendees of these presentations must have a teacher's license or be actively teaching in a formal institution. This is a misunderstanding. Anyone who has interest in the topics is most welcome. If you are interested in language learning and teaching, if your child is currently in the educational system, if you have a deaf person in your family, you are welcome. Date: September 15 (Sun)
Time: 13:30 - 17:00
Place: Tsuchiura Ulara Building - Kennan Shougai-Gakushuu Center (5F of Ito Yokado) (in front of Tsuchiura Station and the bus stops)
Cost: Members Free, One-day Members 500 yen
