Freewriting An Interhemispheric Approach to Language Communication by Hiroaki Shirai( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The use of freewriting in English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) instruction as a means of promoting communicative competence is examined, particularly as it may improve high-school-level ESL instruction in Japan. First, the educational environment of Japanese high schools is described, and some problems with the teaching of ESL writing are outlined. Recent research on brain hemisphere functions is reviewed for insights into the mechanism of language communication, especially the important role played by the right brain. Applications of this research to the teaching of writing are then explored, with particular attention given to how the process of freewriting activates right brain functions such as imagery, intuitiveness, and emotions. This section also explores ways in which the practice of freewriting can address some of the problems of writing instruction in Japan. Finally, practical applications of freewriting principles in the Japanese high school classroom are offered. Contains a 50-item bibliography. (MSE)
