Language and Section: Advanced Japanese
Date: October 16th
Class theme/topics discussed: What do you think of death penalty?
Goal of the class: Students learn new vocabularies and feel comfortable expressing their opinions in Japanese.
Structure of the class (unless you attach your lesson plan below):
I introduced some vocabularies related to death penalty and students were divided into two groups. One is agree with death penalty and the other one is disagree with it.
After they spend about 10 minutes why they disagree and agree, students from each group presented their opinions.
What technology, media or props did you use? (satellite tv, internet resources, playmobiles, etc.)
What worked well in this class? What did not work?
It worked well in terms of learning new vocabularies.
How could this class be improved/ modified?
I will prepare not only vocabularies but also basic/useful grammars and sentences for this kind of topics.
Next time I will choose more easy topics rather than this kind of hard topics.
