I will be giving a poster presentation at the Jalt-Call conference at Toyo Gakuen- Hongo Campus, Tokyo Japan . My poster will be on June 7th 10:30 am to 12:00 pm in room 4503
The title of this poster is:
In Just One Year: An Electronic Corpus of Junior High Learners for Vocabulary Learning and Teaching
here is the link to the event.
and a link to the presenters where you can read my abstract.
Also of note about my is the fact there will be a “high frequency word list raffle” in which conference attendees can guess the top five most frequent words for a writing assignment executed by Japanese junior high students. I think activities like this would be a stimulating way to encourage such students to think about how they use their productive vocabulary in writing. If you try this with your students, please let me know your results.
See you at the conference.
