BRIEF OUTLINE: Students write about their neighborhood.



  • MyNeighborhood attachment: If you are not a New Horizon textbook user, you'll need to delete the page numbers off the worksheet.



  1. The ALT pronounces twice each word contained in the worksheet toolbox for Directions, Locations and Places. The students repeat each word in unison twice. The JTE may elicit the Japanese translation for each word from students or simply provide it on the board. (NOTE: If you are a New Horizon user, the toolbox on page 67 of the textbook provides translations for directions and locations.)
  2. If you are a New Horizon user, the ALT reads the textbook writing example in Step 1 twice. If you are not a NH user, you'll need to create a short script, or use a similar story from the textbook you use.
  3. The students are then instructed to write about their neighborhoods using the example and the outline example contained in the worksheet as a guide. The ALT encourages the students to be as original and creative as possible and to expand on the example should they possess the ability to do so.
  4. The ALT selects volunteers to read what they have written.



  • To be left to the discretion of the individual ALT.



  • This is a writing exercise was designed for New Horizon users (book 2, multi+ 3, p 66-77), but it can easily be used by other textbook users.
  • The JTE should have completed Steps 1-4 of the textbook lesson with the class prior to this writing exercise.



  • Because this is a writing exercise and students may not possess enough English vocabulary to express themselves fully, so encourage students to ask for a translation from English to Japanese for words for phrases.
