Development of a Five Domains Integrated Content-Based EFL Curriculum for Pre-service Teacher Education: With Focus on Promoting Students’ Interaction in English

Hiroki Yoshida
Abstract—Elementary school teachers and secondary school English teachers in Japan are now facing a substantial reformation of the system of English education. The Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology (MEXT) has announced a vision for a full-scale development of a new English education curriculum that is timed with the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Elementary schools are to conduct English Language Activities classes once to twice a week for third and fourth graders, and to conduct English classes as a subject three times a week for fifth and sixth graders. Lower secondary schools are to teach English classes in English. The MEXT has also stipulated teacher training colleges to revise the “Courses of Study” and the pre-service teaching standard curriculum, and to integrate subjects related with English pedagogy into subjects related with specialized knowledge in English. Therefore, this study purposed to develop and examine the validity of a five domains integrated content-based language learning curriculum for pre-service English teacher education for Japanese university students.

Index Terms—Five domains integrated approach, content-based language learning, interaction in English, curriculum development, pre-service teacher education.
