    • 2. 1.1.1 Abstract:
      • teaching writing
        • Not translation exercises
      • to large EFL university classes in Japan.
    • 3. 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.
    • 4. 1.1.3 Abstract:
      • To discourage translation,
      • the writing tasks focused on
      • ‘ narrative writing’ on the video story.
    • 5. 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.
    • 6. 1.2.1 Abstract: 2
      • 8 to 10 groups
      • consisting of
      • three to five students
      • narrative summary projects
      • every other week.
    • 7. 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.
    • 8. 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.
    • 9. 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.
    • 10. 2.0 Introduction - L2 writing
      • Dichotomies/Dilemmas
        • Fluency and accuracy
        • Contrastive rhetoric debate
        • Process vs. Product debate

    • 11. 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.
    • 12. 2.1.2 Kinds of questions to pose
      • How can we put
        • communicative aspects
          • in classroom -
        • with or without the use of E-mails?
    • 13. 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?
    • 14. 3.0 “Teaching narrative writing in large EFL classes”
      • I would like, now, to present my own experience of “ Technology for teaching narrative writing ,”

        • large
      • EFL classes
