【Online Teaching Support】Worksheets for Online Learning: Helping people during a pandemic


In this issue, we will highlight two individuals who are helping society in their own unique ways: Mr. Murase, a ramen shop owner, and Noi Tatsuzaki, a high school student.
For a Tokimeki Shuzaiki project, a group of students from Canterbury University interviewed Mr. Murase and wrote an article based on the interview. The article is available at https://www.tjf.or.jp/tokimeki/canterbury/2020/07/16/1874/.
In Section A, students will read the abridged article about Mr. Murase, and in Section B, they will watch a video of Ms. Tatsuzaki (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPPNLfo_yso). Students will also be invited to explore the qualities of people who are taking timely actions to help society during the difficult time of the pandemic.

The activities will cover the following topics:
• Food
• Current issues
• Technology
• Future plans and aspirations
• Our society
• Significant people

Students will also have an opportunity to develop:
• Viewing skills
