Examples: Topic Details - Example Lesson Plans
Teachers & Kids is a complete elementary school International Understanding curriculum guide that promotes the comprehension and speaking of basic English phrases and encourages thinking about other countries and cultures. The guide provides over 60 fun, student-tested, English and cultural activities and a timeline for each grade level. It includes both English and cultural topics, topic-related vocabulary & phrases, suggested activities for each topic, and example lesson plans.
Teachers & Kids was written to give ALTs and teachers ideas for lessons and for creating International Understanding curricula while they learn about the world with their students. It provides answers for frequently asked questions such as: What topics do I teach? How do I adjust topics for each grade level? What activities do I use and how do I use them with my students? etc. In addition, Teachers & Kids is written in both English and Japanese to assist communication between elementary school teachers and ALTs who are not proficient in Japanese.
Teachers & Kids was written by Joel Bacha. Joel is a former elementary school ALT who has spoken at national ALT conferences about International Understanding and worked as an elementary school International Understanding consultant. He has become a leader of elementary school International Understanding education in Japan. The Teachers & Kids curriculum guide is currently being used by elementary schools in Imabari City, in Ehime Prefecture.
