Ancestors: Researching and Sharing Personal Histories

B. Backwell2, B. Cullen1

1Nagoya Institute of Technology, Japan; 2Nagoya City University

In this presentation, we share an original task-based learning activity called "Ancestors." The teacher introduces the topic of ancestors with a poem and a map of historical human migration. Students then carry out interviews with older family members and research the historical roots of their family. In the following lesson, each student presents a family tree and provides stories about family members. This is a personalized and intrinsically motivating language learning exercise which also helps to promote better family connection, communication and enrich self-identity.
