初級・中級教材による日本語教育項目マトリックス : (1)漢字 Japanese teaching item matrix seen in the basic and intermediate textbooks : (1) Kanji analysis
For effective language education, analysis of the content, order, and amount of material contained in the teaching materials is very important. Having a detailed and quantitative grasp of these, and going on to work out an educational sequence that is based on these data is not only vital for the beginning teacher, but also useful for the more experienced one. In our research, we have made a database of textbooks, and are creating a matrix of teaching items by analyzing their content quantitatively by order, quantity, amount, and how items of each level relate to each other. We then attempt to specify where a learner of Japanese stands at present, and what he should be taught next. In the present paper, we take up the basic thinking of our research, and an analysis of the kanji.
