Summary

This volume offers a set of writing activities designed to correspond with two levels of proficiency on the American Council of Foreign Languages scale: Novice and Intermediate. The activities have been designed to accompany any type of textbook in any type of instruction. The intention is to provide learners with the opportunity to use Japanese in writing situations that closely resemble authentic writing tasks and to give students the opportunity to learn to respond in a culturally appropriate manner. Each activity is based on an authentic written document that serves as a prompt to define the format and purpose of the writing task. This document provides a context to the activity and a linguistic basis for making writing decisions. The pedagogical objectives are outlined at the beginning of each activity and are intended to help teachers select the appropriate activity for their own purposes. The activity generally starts with a discussion of the topic. After this initial preparation, students are asked to extract pertinent information from accompanying documents. The instructor then helps students identify content and organization for their writing. After students have completed the writing tasks, a final activity asks students to become readers of their classmates' writing and to perform a new task on the basis of what they read. The activities included in this guide deal with tourism, transportation, social communication, shopping, food, education, business, and leisure. (VWL)
