A CHRIST BASED PROGRAM

IN THE CLASSROOM

There are various positions available for teachers joining the program.  Most teachers are able to teach at least one class per week at Mr. Maki’s private English School, “Wakakusa.”  Some teachers work for the Wakakusa English School almost exclusively and do most of their own lesson planning.  Other teachers spend the majority of their time as an Assistant Language Teacher (ALT) at a junior high school, working under a trained Japanese Teacher of English (JTE).  Teachers working in the public junior high schools may not have much control over those classes, but will have an opportunity to plan their own lessons at the Wakakusa English School. Many teachers are also able to teach in local public elementary schools at least one day per week.

 

Thus, each team member has a slightly different job and may spend varying amounts of time working within the public school system or at the Wakakusa English School.

 

However, regardless of the job, the goal, as English teachers, is to nurture students’ expressive abilities.  Teachers do this by trying to understand the needs of their students and adapting their lessons to follow suit. Ideally, teachers are aware of their own teaching style and methods, and are constantly challenged to improve them.
