  Leadership in English Discussion
■ 概要
  Luckett (1994) outlined an approach to teaching English discussion to Japanese university students. The primary assumption behind this approach is that small group discussions in English are characterized by a number of distinct features and that by developing students' awareness of these features, we can facilitate their acquisition of discussion skills. This teaching method has proven to be successful and popular among both students and teachers who have adopted it. Now that a significant amount of time has passed, I would like to revisit this approach and offer some refinements. Specifically, the training of discussion leaders has turned out to be the most beneficial and effective aspect of this approach. After reviewing some of the key elements of a good discussion, we will look in more detail at the training and development of successful discussion leaders. It has been observed that by acting as discussion leaders for their own small-group discussions, students further increase their awareness of the elements of discussion and become more active participants.
