page offers generic and other ideas that have emerged from
teachers' use of the Deai resources--simple innovations and
creative techniques, activities that may not constitute a
full unit but can be used on a one-time basis, task ideas,
and so forth.
This page presents My Story and photo captions
texts rewritten for Japanese-language learners. If any of our readers
have done revisions of the Japanese texts in the Deai booklet for
their students, we would appreciate it if they would share them
with us, helping us to make texts adapted to the needs of learners
available on the Deai Website for the benefit of other teachers.
Reference contains illustrations and photographs, the URLs of websites for further research, graphs and tables showing a variety of data and reference information, as well as authentic teaching resources like the informational brochures of the high schools attended by the seven Deai students.
The "Mini Encyclopedia" contains entries
on Japanese culture, society, and the educational system with illustrations
and photographs that provide background information on the content
of the photographs and text.
