In Class - Learning Styles and Classroom Management Hi! My name's Nick, and when I'm not working on ESL-Kids.com, I'm teaching English at an English 'conversation' school in Japan. These 'In-Class' pages are designed to give some guidance to current teachers, or people considering teaching ESL to children. I've been teaching children ESL for over 15 years, and hope to share some of of what I've learned in that time with you. Generally, children in Japan study at private English schools just once a week, usually for 45 minutes or an hour. Japanese parents tend to expect their children to learn English quickly and with ease, and also expect them to have lots of fun at the same time. I'm going to focus on an imaginary class of kindergarten children. The next page details the learning styles and personalities of each child, and on page three I talk through the lesson, giving suggestions on what activities to do, and how to deal with the problems that arise.

Learn: For Students: WWII History: Take a Closer Look at Primary Sources Exploring Primary Sources with the National WWII Museum There are a lot of ways to learn history: reading books about a certain time and place, watching videos about a past event, traveling to a different part of the world. When you visit a museum—or in this case a museum’s website—you come in contact with actual pieces of history. Those pieces of history are called Primary Sources. They come in the form of artifacts, archives, and oral histories. When you explore primary sources from WWII, you get to see what people saw 70 years ago at a very interesting time in world history.

History Globe In 1606, some 105 adventurers set off from England to try and establish the first permanent English colony in the New World. They settled in what is now the state of Virginia and called their colony first James Fort, and then James Towne, in honor of James I, the King of England. The early years of the colony were nearly a total disaster. Almost half of the settlers died due to poor choices in settlement location, management of resources, and quarrels with the indigenous Powhatan Indians. You are the Captain of the Jamestown Colony: Can you do any better than the real colonists? You will have a copy of the London Company's Instructions to help guide you. Scoring Factors: After you make all your decisions, you will receive a report on the state of your colony based on these factors: Food: How well can you provide it for your colonists? Make History: You will get to compare your colony to the historical Jamestown at the end. Good luck and Godspeed!
