The teacher of a subject is often the very best person to know what their students need. This includes knowing what resources will be most effective for the cohort. Knowing what your students or your self could benefit from and having the time to create those resources though are two different things. That is where I hope to help. Recently I have had several teachers contact me about resources they were looking for. As a result we now have 3 new resources that may interest you.
1.New combined student workbook package
If you have purchase our student workbook resources pack (which includes 8 PDF work booklets for each chapter, teacher marking guidelines, sound files and google form tasks) you can now add on the combined workbook package for $50 for all three (ie Jblog 1, 2 and 3) or $25 each for one booklet (eg just Jblog 1.)
Why is this so handy?
This add-on package provides you with one PDF per textbook so that you can print off one booklet for the year if you wish.
It also provides you with the word document version though so that you can completely customise the booklet for you class! You can add in your favourite worksheets and activities; delete the provided ones that you never use and personalise each class booklet with photographs of your town, class etc.
This offer is only available to teachers who have purchased the student workbook resources pack.
2.New flashcards display cards
One teacher was looking for flashcards to display in their room. This set of 145 cards are all the Kanji listed in the Kanji index of Jblog 1, 2 and 3. You receive the set as PDF, word and individual jpegs so that you can also use them in presentations and activities. This set is $50.
3.New assessment task for Stage 4
This task is called the “Japanese investment Expo” and was inspired by a discussion with one of our regional teachers. The idea is that students use their knowledge of their region and agriculture to lure Japanese investment into a product of their choice. The hook is a narrative about a new mayor. Below is a brief extract.
A new mayor has been elected to your town. They are keen to increase the profile of your town on the international stage. The mayor has two key projects in mind.
The first is to establish a new sister city relationship with a town in Japan.
The second is to attract Japanese investment into local agricultural businesses to expand production and increase employment.
Your team will need to work through the attached tasks to help the mayor achieve these targets.
You can read more about this task on our blog. This task is $70 and can be modified to reuse each year.
Thank you to all the wonderful teachers who contact me and share with me their teaching situation. It is always a pleasure to hear from you and I look forward to seeing several of you at our Noosa Workshop July 13th!
