Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT)
This paper is a handbook for ESL teachers which highlights problem areas in the Japanese ESL classroom that can affect teaching/learning effectiveness.
The introduction presents my specific teaching situation in Japan. The next section summaries the process which I use in analyzing the problem areas. Following are ten chapters each of which focuses on a problem area.
Each chapter points out both Japanese and American values in conflict and suggests teaching strategies for working with each area.
