This unit's focus was on teaching new vocabulary, grammar, and functions. As a language learned myself, as well as an ALT in Japan, I have always wondered how vocabulary was chosen for textbooks or certain levels. In my Junior High School classroom, we use a book called 'Sunshine English'. Many of us ALTs have qualms with this book, as we think it teaches very odd vocabulary for the student's level. While each unit has a theme, for example, energy, and the words go along with this unit, such as, nuclear energy, and so on, I do not think this is appropriate for the student's level. Most of these students cannot hold a long conversation, and most of us do not use 'nuclear energy' in our daily lives. I would like to get into the mind of the author who wrote this and consider is reasoning. On the other hand, I think the guidelines when selecting new vocabulary, "appropriate to the students, appropriate to the task, frequency and coverage, and teachability", are all very valid points to consider. I find when I am studying Japanese, the words I retain are the ones I use more frequently. It would be interesting to know if the most famous language tests and books, for example, TOIEC, JLPT, etc, in every language, have the same recommended vocabulary. As I teach younger classes as well and can usually select the topic to teach, I will take what I have learned in this unit into consideration when considering what to teach them or lesson plans.
