An Analysis of Policy Recommendations for Japanese as Second Language Education.
Ono, Yumiko
This study by Tokyo University of Foreign Studies collected data on actual conditions of teaching Japanese as a Second Language (JSL) to children coming to Japan without the language. The study analyzed tasks that needed to be addressed, presented ideas on teaching syllabi and student evaluation, and submitted policy recommendations for schools and governments. The study results touched on content and methods of JSL instruction, examining conditions and issues concerning JSL children, principles for JSL instruction, and tentative lesson plans for JSL classes. The study also highlighted school and educational administration of JSL education, including: conditions of school and educational administration of JSL education; national and local policies concerning JSL education; problems in school and educational administration of JSL education; issues to be considered for better administration of JSL education; and policy recommendations for effective administration of JSL education. Results provide data on teachers teaching JSL, inservice education, learning materials, organizational systems for JSL students within schools, JSL student enrollment, and collaboration with volunteer organizations. Five resulting policy recommendations for effective administration of JSL education are noted. (Contains 13 references.) (SM)
