北米におけるハイクワークショップの有用性 : 国際交流を実りあるものとするために [in Japanese] Haiku workshop in North America : Promoting effective international exchange [in Japanese]
Access this Article
In North America, structure-based haiku instruction (i.e., instructing students to follow strictly the 5-7-5 syllables rule) is dominant, while communication-based haiku instruction, such as the kukai practiced in Japan, is rare in elementary schools. To promote effective international exchange through haiku for children in Japan and North American, teachers must know the key concepts and procedures of communication-based haiku instruction. In this study, we designed and conducted a communication-based haiku workshop for elementary schoolteachers in Canada, to enhance their understanding of haiku characteristics and instruction. The post-workshop evaluation results from a questionnaire survey revealed that the participants changed their views of haiku and haiku instruction. Thus, this haiku workshop proved useful and effective in North America.
