Bringing the World into the Classroom

Mr. James Higa

English through Media (EM) courses aim to enable students to experience a variety of topics through the media of their choice, be it newspapers, magazines, Internet sources, videos, novels, or short stories.

Online Articles and Videos courses bring the Internet into the classroom as students share with their peers what they find online. This sharing gives the students opportunities for lively conversations about the topics under discussion.

This course gives students the experience of searching the internet to find articles and videos that they find amusing to read and/or watch. Though sharing and leading small group discussions, the students will expand their own knowledge of the topic, as well as pass on information about the topic to their classmates. The discussions will also give students different perspectives on topics as well as present new ideas and information.
