Learn through ENIE (English Newspaper in Education)

Toshihiro Yamanishi
Saturday, 13 June 2009 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm


I would say that I have not taught English but taught through English. Through this session I would like to share with the participants various merits of ENIE: English Newspaper in Education. Many kinds of activities of ENIE will be introduced.
これまでの英語教育の真髄として、私は「英語『を』教える」のではなく、「英語『で』教える」(英語を用いて、教養として物事を教える)事を中心に据えて参りました。今回のテーマは『学校現場で活用できる英字新聞を活用した時事内容(English Newspaper in Education)』と題して、文字通り『ENIE』の効用を皆様と共に考えていきたいと思います。これまでの実践歴を紹介しつつ、最新実践などもご紹介できればと思います。
