In the context of English education, terms such as Active Learning, the CLT paradigm, Task-based Instructions, CLIL, Collaborative Language Learning, and The CEFR have been used, which have had a significant impact on the new way of teaching English. In the new curriculum guidelines (foreign languages) that will be enforced in high school from 2020, the concept of “learning English during activities” and “making classrooms a place of communication” will be at the center of the concept, The training of “power” is shouted. At the same time, more specific guidelines (guiding principles) such as “can-do”, “5 areas”, “independent and interactive and deep learning”, and “cross-curricular English education” Is also shown. These guidelines have something to do with the above English terminology. Therefore, in this course, after organizing the terms and concepts, we will consider how to create a lesson in English education. The main issues of terminology are as follows.
1. Active Learning is not a “teaching method”, but a result that emerges in students as a result of learning activities. Active Learning is based on the concept of Learning by Doing, but only doing does not guarantee Active Learning. For Active Learning, doing and reflection are necessary. At the center of reflection is “inquiry” such as John Dewy.
2. The CLT (communicative language teaching) is also called the “communicative approach” and has been the mainstream of foreign language education since 1980. However, this must be regarded as a “paradigm”, not a “method”. Within a large framework, Task-based Instruction, CLIL, Collaborative Language Learning, etc. have been proposed and are being used around the world.
3. The CEFR has abandoned the idea of “4 skills” and has proposed the idea of the modes of communication. Production, Interaction, Reception, and Mediation are four of them. Then, voice and characters (and sign language) are recognized as expression modes, and by multiplying both, eight language activity types are indicated. In addition, The CEFR shows a nested theoretical framework in the description of can-do, and the description is made according to it. Even in Japan, attempts to describe can-do have been made nationwide, but it is doubtful that it is in fact valid. As a result, there are many cases where a can-do list is created but not actually used. We believe that understanding Active Learning, the CLT, and the CEFR is essential for promoting a new form of English education in a sound way, and in this course we hope to play a role in bridging theory and practice.

2nd “Hone English teaching skills in the vulnerable fashion” March 21, 2020 (Sat) 14: 00-17: 00
“Hone the English teaching technique of the vulnerable fashion” Lecturer: Dr. Kazuki Abe
Former Director of Abe Aichi English Research Institute Former Professor of Dokkyo University Faculty of Foreign Languages and Professor of the same Graduate School Former lecturer of NHK Radio “Basic English 3” (1994-96)
At present, in both junior and senior high schools, “English as a subject (foreign language)” is required to develop lessons that emphasize communication activities. However, there is still a strong tendency in educational settings to make a considerable part of textbooks or collections of questions, or even the lessons themselves, if inadvertently biased toward knowledge-based text.
So how do you solve these problems? The author believes that one of the solutions is to cultivate “voice expression skills” that emphasizes speech as one of the important pillars. Yes, “sound” is the key to learning English. This is especially effective for students who are not good at English.
Improve the consciousness of students who cannot do it, just increase the knowledge level in order to stimulate the class. It raises the learning ratio. And the key to that unconscious learning is “sound familiarity” = “voice guidance”. So, as mentioned above, what is an effective “voice instruction” for students who do not like English and do not like English? And if you succeed in this “sound familiarity”, the “mouth familiarity” in parallel will go smoothly, and then you can connect to “ear familiarity” and “eye familiarity”.
One of the important achievements of these steps is that you can read English sentences smoothly, and that the voice expression in English works smoothly according to the application. In this lecture, we will introduce the procedure of voice expression guidance in an
easy-to-understand manner, touching as many specific examples as possible.
