"Deai" sample lesson plans: How can we best utilize "Deai" web site and accompanying CD ROM's
Second presentation of "WORKSHOP on "DEAI" MATERIALS Chair: KUBOTA, Ryuko (UNC - Chapel Hill)"
Deai Main page
Click on Keiko Schneider: "Clothing, Shopping, and Your Opinion About Fashion"
The objective of the presentation is to introduce a lesson plan on Clothing theme and demonstrate how "Deai" web site can be used to carry out this particular lesson plan and more.
Photo sheets, generously produced and distributed by the TJF, are wonderful and they present characters and their lives real to the students. Picture speaks more than words and we all know visual aids are indispensable in language instruction The real life of high school students is a big motivation factor and they "humanize" class activities. For teachers who are not fortunate enough to be given the physical "Deai" kit can utilize the materials by accessing the web site. There are more photos on the web site (and the accompanying CD's) than full-size photo sheets.
