Using A Blend Of The Knowledge Framework And The Project Framework To Develop Materials For Teaching Public Speaking, Tamara Schmeisser

Creative Components

While the Japanese education system has placed an emphasis on having students understanding the language used in texts to prepare them for passing written university entrance exams, Japanese learners struggle with using language orally. As a result, Japanese learners are hesitant to speak English in both formal and informal contexts due to a strong fear of making a mistake, creating disruption in the classroom, and losing face. This has thus led to teachers encountering a Japanese “silence,” which then creates challenges and frustrations in the language learning classroom. Using several theories and frameworks that include content-based language learning (CBLL), project-based ...

Trade-focused jobs are high in demand for skilled students that know and value the importance of obtaining employability ‘soft’ skills, but also have the motivation and drive to work with ...

Designing A Food Science Curriculum To Build Agricultural Literacy In High School Students, Cassandra Forbush

Creative Components

henever people ask me what I do for a living, I prepare myself to provide an answer to two very different personnel: the first is someone who knows exactly what an agricultural educator is, which is always the dream response. The later, more likely scenario, is that they have no idea what that is or why I “teach farming to kids”. These individuals I come across are no different than the students in high school that I teach: a small percentage know what my agricultural classes are about and why they are important, but the majority thinks we are “hicks ...
