          • [email_address]
    http://myasuda-web.hp.infoseek.co.jp/myindex.html June 4 , 2006 Sapporo Gakuin  Univ. Skip Abstracts
  • 1.1.1 Abstract:
    • teaching writing
      • Not translation exercises
    • to large EFL university classes in Japan.
  • 1.1.2 Abstract:
    • To ease and shorten the grading cycle,
    • Internet and multimedia environment have been fully utilized,
      • a video movie,
      • a Group E-Mailing /Groupware,
      • on-line quizzes.
  • 1.1.3 Abstract:
    • To discourage translation,
    • the writing tasks focused on
    • ‘ narrative writing’ on the video story.
  • 1.1.4 Abstract:
    • each class
      • About 5 minute video segment
      • oral question and answer drills
        • for comprehension check are
    the instructor’s tailor made on-line quizzes.
  • 1.2.1 Abstract: 2
    • 8 to 10 groups
    • consisting of
    • three to five students
    • narrative summary projects
    • every other week.
  • 1.2.2 Abstract: 2
    • First, the group leaders will
    • submit their summary
    • in 10 to 15 sentences
    • via an E-Mailing List,
    • to which
    • the instructor in turn replies,
    • with some corrections and feedback.
  • 1.2.3 Abstract: 2
    • The Group Mailing List enables the whole class
    • to browse asynchronous E-mail logs
    • and each group can share its work for further rewriting.
    • Approved groups recite their own corrected work in class as part of bi-weekly projects.
  • 1.2.4 Abstract: 2
    • And in the final class,
    • every student individually will record
      • on a cassette tape
    • the narrative recitation work,
      • watching and synchronizing with
    • an 8 and half minute long,
      • Digested and muted video story.
  • 2.0 Introduction - L2 writing
    • Dichotomies/Dilemmas
      • Fluency and accuracy
      • Contrastive rhetoric debate
      • Process vs. Product debate
      • Assessment
      • Feedback and error correction
    cf. Casanave, Christine Pearson. (2004) Controversies in second language writing. Ann Arbor, Michigan:Univ. of Michigan June 2-4, 2006
  • 2.1.1 Kinds of questions to pose
    • How can we focus on
      • meaning
        • rather than
      • forms?
    • Learning English
      • vs.
    • Learning about English
    • The place of
      • grammar learning and
      • Correction.
  • 2.1.2 Kinds of questions to pose
    • How can we put
      • communicative aspects
        • in classroom -
      • with or without the use of E-mails?
  • 2.1.3 Kinds of further questions to pose
    • How can we have
    • interactive drills,
      • so that students can actively participate in class?
    • How can we create
      • “ autonomous learning” environment
      • with Group work?
  • 3.0 “Teaching narrative writing in large EFL classes”
    • I would like, now, to present my own experience of “ Technology for teaching narrative writing ,”
    • for oral and written communications in
      • "regular" and
      • large
    • EFL classes
    • on a Japanese university level.

    • "English Otsu" in Japanese,
      • emphasis on oral and written communication.
