Japanese Learning for Communication -A Marugoto Approach-

Japanese Learning for Communication -A Marugoto Approach- 

How to ask questions that incite speaking and speculation


※This lab will be conducted in Japanese. 本ラボは日本語で行われます。

What kinds of questions do you ask in class?

For this workshop, we will be focusing on the Marugoto Elementary 1 Activities book (Topic 3, Lesson 5 [This park is big and beautiful]) and think together on how we can use questions to encourage active learning in students. 

By taking time to experience the students’ viewpoint as well as joining discussion groups between participants, we will consider and share our thoughts on questions from a practical perspective. 

Let’s work together to find innovations you’ll want to try the very next day!
