Debate in the English Classroom

Yesterday's Language Connection feature in the Daily Yomiuri looked at the use of debate in the English classroom. Debate is part of the global communication course at the Itami Municipal High School in Hyogo Prefecture, and teams from the school will take part in a contest between three schools in the prefecture today. The teacher at the Itami school who runs the class, Hiromi Kubo, won the 53rd Yomiuri Education Award last year for his "efforts and achievements in cultivating practical English-language skills through ordinary classes at a public high school."
