How to hook your students walking into Japanese lessons? Bring Japan to your classroom with 52 engaging photographic wallpapers displayed from your computer or laptop via the classroom data projector.
Maintain an engaging 2016 Japanese classroom with 52「かべがみ」- that's one for each week of the year - covering cultural and language elements of:
* Vending Machines
* Temples and Shrines
* Major Cities
You will hear students actively developing their intercultural understanding by asking numerous engaging questions: what is that picture about, are those prices cheap, where in Japan would you find that, what is the purpose of ...., etc. You can expand observations that students may make with personal experiences in Japan, more reflective questions, have them describe 2-3 things they have learnt from the image to develop written literacy and also incorporate elements of known target language. You find the first ten minutes of the lesson will be taken up with this productive, on-task activity! As class teacher, you may choose to add QR codes for students to seek external information about various かべがみ or create target language questions for them to answer about the related かべがみ.
