Kagoshima SDC Idea Share Handbooks

The Skills Development Conference (SDC) brings Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) and Japanese Teachers of English (JTEs) together to share work experiences and to discuss team-teaching and related matters. The conference strives to enhance foreign language education and to further develop the JET Programme in Kagoshima Prefecture.

The Idea Share Handbook is a compilation of ALTs’ and JTEs’ lesson ideas put together for SDC. If you’re looking for some help with lesson planning and activity-making, you’ve come to the right place!
