During the workshop the presenter will demonstrate how projects can be put into practice. He will show models proposed by Kilpatrick, Stoller and one of the presenters, display materials including a project syllabus, a sample lesson plan, example task worksheets, and materials created by their students. He will model a classroom activity. Then, the presenter will lead the participants, step by step, through the process of planning a project to complement a unit in text books commonly used in Japanese high schools.
By the end of the workshop the participants will have produced an outline for a project that they can incorporate into their own classrooms. They will have a tool to create a desire in their learners for language learning and individual growth with a momentum that will carry this on throughout their lives.
