Cory Koby
Ready or not, here it comes! Japanese high school English curriculum changes under the new course of study

Date and Time: Sunday, 12 October 2014 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Speaker: Cory Koby

Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology introduced its once-in-a-decade “Course of Study” in 2009, and the final phase of the mandated changes took effect in April 2013. Cory will outline the changes in high school English language curriculum, with particular attention paid to what has NOT changed. Teacher and student perceptions, attitudes, and practices will be discussed, and empirical evidence will be presented which illustrate the significant obstacles facing the implementation MEXT’s goal of TLEIE (Teaching and Learning English in English).
