The Student News

Today's language Connection in the Daily Yomiuri is an article on Reitaku High School in Kashiwa, where third-year students recently presented live "newscasts" in English as a major group project. Students worked in small groups to prepare the 15-minute presentations, similar to a TV news broadcast, which they gave in front of fellow students and parents. They used computers to organize the video, photos, graphs and other visual and music content. Students took the project very seriously as it was video-taped and graded as an exam, based on "content, pronunciation, grammar, vidual aids, body language, eye contact with the camera, clarity and creativity."
