Information Exchange Meeting for Japanese Language Teachers: Continuing Learning Japanese 25
Japanese Language Education and Gender

Canadian Association for Japanese Language Education (CAJLE)
The Japan Foundation, Toronto

Japanese is taught at several secondary schools in Toronto and its surrounding areas. Yet, it appears that teachers do not know much about the other institutions, courses or programmes. This lack of understanding can sometimes be found even within the same institution. We believe that it is very important and necessary for teachers to know what their current students have previously studied and in what type of environment that education took place. Similarly, it is important to be informed of the available learning opportunities for students who wish to continue studying Japanese.  We believe it is essential for teachers to build a strong and active network that enables them to communicate with one another. Since December 2009, the Canadian Association for Japanese Language Education (CAJLE) and the Japan Foundation, Toronto have been co-organizing events to build a good foundation for the articulation of Japanese language education.

In the 25th event of the series, we would like to share ideas within the topic of “Japanese language education and gender;” namely, how we are expected to respond in an educational environment where we are met with an increasing variety of students with different backgrounds and values. In the first part of the workshop, Mr. Jotaro Arimori will introduce studies on the topic and talk about gender within the context of Japanese language education. After a lunch break, we hope to think about the topic from different viewpoints as we discuss the important points to remember when dealing with classroom instruction and materials, how to interact with our students, etc.

Please join us!
