WATJ Mentor Cohort Application

Dear WATJ Members:

WATJ members have a special opportunity to be part of a year-long, ongoing professional development workshop series led by Leslie Birkland-sensei of the Laurasian Institute. Birkland-sensei was founding president of WATJ and now works to train teachers hosting J-LEAP assistant teachers during their summer workshops. Birkland-sensei has volunteered to work with a small cohort of dedicated teachers in Washington who wish to incorporate best practices to improve Japanese language education in our state.

Birkland-sensei has offered to run monthly meetings at her house in Kirkland, times and dates tentatively scheduled for Saturdays but may be flexible based on members’ needs. Cohort applications are limited to six members, selected byBirkland-sensei based on your application information. Teachers who are interested in learning about different teaching methods, reflecting on their own teaching, and implementing changes should definitely complete an application to become a member of this professional development cohort!

Think of this opportunity as a Japanese-specific PLC whose goals are to help us become better at what we love to do: teach Japanese.

We’ve finally gotten down the details for the event on gaming! It will be at DigiPen Studios from 2-4 pm on Sunday, May 20th.  I’ve attached the flyer here, but some additional information: Paul Chavez, a senior games producer at DoubleDown Interactive and former international producer at Microsoft Game Studios will talk about his experiences in Japan and working in the industry for over 13 years. There will be a speaking program, Q&A, and a campus tour of DigiPen Institute.

I’ll send a better flyer in a bit, but our event page will be up at jassw.org! I’ve also attached the information about our new JASNET program for young professionals, and we definitely would love to encourage WATJ teachers to take part in it.

Please let me know if you have any questions,
