Building Confidence with Learner-Taught Lessons

J. Taylor

Chubu University, Japan

This presentation describes the second implementation of a university class project in which students taught mini-lessons to their classmates. After seeing a model lesson taught by the teacher, students in two different courses planned and lead interactive activities introducing an aspect of their major or their hobbies to the class. The teacher guided students during in-class planning and acted as a learner during lesson presentations. This project is an engaging way to build student self-confidence in using English for communication. Student comments will be shared, and recommendations will be given for adapting this activity to different class levels and goals.
