    This study investigated how to help Japanese songwriters writing in English. It also aimed to evaluate and develop tools for probing the mental processes underlying L2 creativity. Evaluating various methodologies (corpus analysis of lyrics, interviews, verbal protocol analysis, and journal studies) led to eight case studies of Japanese L2 songwriters centered on the “dialogues of creation” which arose in one-to one songwriting workshops where the researcher adopted multiple roles including researcher, EFL teacher, creative coach, audience, and songwriter.
    Songwriting was shown to be a flexible use of cognitive, social, linguistic, and psychological strategies to solve a “song puzzle,” simultaneously manipulating mental representations, inner voice, external constraints of song norms and language, and internal constraints created by writing. Key requirements underlying L2 creativity were revealed as flexibility in strategy and language use, openness, creation of favourable circumstances, awareness of L1 norms, and development of craft through appropriate feedback and experiential learning. Other important issues addressed were motivations, inner and external validation criteria, borrowing and ownership, and L2 identity negotiation.
    Three approaches to helping L2 songwriters were formulated: a language-centered approach highlighting deviation from English song and linguistic norms, a skills-centered approach utilizing an L2 songwriting model, and a learner-centered approach identifyin characteristics of the "good L2 songwriter." Teacher mediation through songwriting exercises and feedback created an experiential and organic curriculum which facilitated rapid development of strategies and self-correction skills.
    The investigation into mental processes, use of metaphor, and management of multiple roles may interest qualitative researchers. The descriptions of creative cognitive strategies in manipulating mental representations and inner voice, importance of inner validation, and process model of L2 songwriting may inform research in L1 and L2 creativity. Pedagogic implications for experiential learning, collaborative learning, organic curriculum, bilingual clustering, and L2 identity negotiation may contribute to EFL and ESP.

  • Songs in the Discussion Classroom

    学位論文(修士)   単著

    This paper examines the use of songs in the foreign language discussion classroom. It aims to demonstrate that songs can be a powerful pedagogic tool in discussion and to establish a framework for the design of materials which incorporate songs.
    The use of appropriate music in the classroom has motivational effects for most learners. In addition, music has strong physiological effects and the resulting affect can positively influence cognition. Music may also encourage greater use of the right hemisphere of the brain and lead to a more holistic approach which increases the rate of language acquisition. The text of songs offers the advantages of authenticity and its features make it easily understandable to language learners. The universal themes enable it to to lead into almost any discussion topic and the personal perspective of the song participants direct it towards the central issues of the topic.
    In order to identify the meanings which are available for discussion, a model of meanings
    in music and song is developed by drawing on work from psychology and musicology. The meaning in music and song is influenced by four factors - musical structure, social context, physiological nature and cognitive nature. These interact to form meanings in the mind of the listener. These meanings can be grouped into three types - representation of external meanings, expression of emotions and musical meanings. The large variety of meanings or possible interpretations of a song is seen as a positive rather than a negative point in the discussion classroom where their statement and resolution can produce a rich interchange of views.The four factors which influence these meanings are explored in detail and extensive examples of how they may be realized in discussion tasks are given.
    Moving from theory to practice, a framework for incorporating these discussion tasks into
    coherent materials is presented. Various options for presentation, comprehension, exploitation and
    discussion of the song are examined. These are illustrated with reference to a sample set of
    materials. In this way, teachers can easily produce their own materials. Songs can also be employed to encourage students to produce discussion materials. This can lead to greater learner autonomy and considerable learning outside the classroom as well as providing opportunities for teacher development.
    The paper concludes by reiterating the powerful role that songs can play in language
    acquisition in the discussion classroom and outlining some possibilities for further research.

  • TEEE; A New English Education System for First Year Students at Institutes of Technology in Tokai


    研究期間:  2010年04月  -  2012年12月  代表者:  石川有香

    The aim of the research is to develop a new English education system for first year student majoring in engineering at institutes of technology in the Tokai area. We created an English teacher's network for TEEE (Tokai English Education for Engineering Students), in order to clarify current problems, to develop a new methodology, and to apply it to our students. Results of the study suggested that teaching ESP (English for Specific Purposes) through the TEEE system can be effective not only for graduate students but also for first year students, since students are generally motivated to study science and engineering although their technical and English knowledge is very limited.
