Communicative Activities for the Japanese Classroom.
Mishima, Toshiko; Pusavat, Yoko S.
This handbook, developed in connection with a California State University Project, provides 30 communication activities for the Japanese classroom to assist teachers of Japanese in implementing communication-based instruction. It is designed so that teachers can easily identify and use an activity that corresponds to the language area currently being studied. Some vocabulary and structural patterns are given for each activity, which provides opportunities for students to apply various forms they have already studied in different contexts and to help motivate students to learn. Also contained are some socio-cultural notes that teachers can introduce into the classroom through communicative activity. Each lesson lists objective, level of instruction, language, group size, time, preparation needed, a brief description of the activity, notes and possible variations followed by extensive charts, illustrations, or other visual aides. References are included, 7 in Japanese and 14 in English.(Author/AB)
