Language and Section: Japanese Intermediate/Advanced

Date: Feb 21st

Class theme/topics discussed: FOODS!

Goal of the class: Students learn about rare foods we eat in Japan.

Structure of the class (unless you attach your lesson plan below):
1. Students have to name Japanese foods they know. (10 minutes)
2. I showed power point slide shows with pictures of “gross” Japanese foods. Students have to guess what they are (15 minutes)
3. I talked about those foods I showed: Where, when, how often do people in Japan eat the foods. (15 minutes) Students ask questions on them.
4. Discussions on “gross” foods in Japan. When did we start eating them? Which one do they like to try? Or not and why. (20 minutes)

What technology, media or props did you use? (satellite tv, internet resources, playmobiles, etc.)

What worked well in this class? What did not work?
Students loved this activity! It was a great opportunity for them to know rare, “gross” Japanese foods because they do not get to see or eat in America.

How could this class be improved/ modified?
It would be great if lrs prepared power point with pictures of rare food in Japan and make students try to guess what they are.
