Today, those attending the monthly Akita-JALT meeting were fortunate participants of an illuminating presentation and discussion. Long time resident and teacher of Akita Prefecture (and personal friend to many), Takaaki Hiratsuka (Taka) facilitated a great session about team teaching in some local Akita high schools. It was a great time. We had some great comments and discussions, and those who participated are encouraged to leave comments.
Much thanks goes to Takaaki Hiratsuka for preparing a great presentation, and we all send him well-wishes in his endeavors to complete his Ph.D. studies at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
A more complete report will be posted in the coming days, along with extra posting following up on topics and issues raised during the presentation.
