授業の概要 TEACHER RESEARCH FOR ENGLISH EDUCATION
Students are encouraged to research a wide range of teaching and learning techniques and their effects on English vocabulary acquisition. Mainly, I want for students to write a thesis that will help them to become stronger teachers. By studying how English learning tasks affect memory, learning, and motivation, students gain important insights into the learning process. Teacher reflection is also a very intersting and valuable topic. Again, students should strive to do research that will help them gain tools to teach effectively when they become English teachers. 
授業の到達目標 This is a seminar in English Education Research. The purpose is for students to develop their own research themes in preparation for their graduation theses.
