Suggestions on
Preparation and
The class consists of the following two pillars.
1. To learn the basics of language and intercultural communication in the classroom
2. To develop an appropriate unit, lesson plans, and teaching and learning materials to be linguistically and culturally accommodated in the class.
As a prerequisite for the first point, the students must proactively and continuously improve their English proficiency based on a mid/long-term plan. For the second point, you are expected to organize and create a series of lessons to express yourself.
Enough preparation and reflection are required before and after each class. Prepare and review each session and join it with your questions. Your active participation and English use are highly recommended (Japanese could be used depending on the situation).  
Requirements This course is mainly for those from the Globally-Minded Teacher Training Program.
If there are many other applicants who wish to take the course, we may restrict the course registration.

Message We would like you to investigate the significance of conducting classes using a foreign language in the context of school education in Japan from multiple perspectives, and to learn the similarities and differences with classes using Japanese as the mother tongue in the lesson planning. The product of this class must not be simply translated versions of the unit and lesson plans developed during the teaching practicum in an attached school. Please broaden your perspective in researching contents and materials and take on challenges that are different from those in your major program.
