list of items they would like to research, study, and
present in English to the class. Students then write a
paper, present the information to the class as a lesson and

questions become the test for the presentation.
Students assigned to watch a movie about high school life
and write presentations/lead discussions about which
character they liked and why. Discussions are held about
trials, tribulations, and lessons to be learned from the
movie to demonstrate how issues are present in Japanese
