Good Question! is an English
communication textbook that focuses on output and
self-expression. Input is scaffolded carefully to
guide students through comprehensible
communication models to self-expression through
multiple formats (oral and written). The focus is
on accuracy in extended spoken responses using
content generated by writing and reading
Good Question! is specifically designed
to help Japanese students make the transition from
grammar and vocabulary studies to communication.
Each exercise begins with a warm-up conversation
that prompts students to use their own
information. Reading and vocabulary exercises
expand the unit topic, followed by question making
instruction and exercises and finally student
interviews. Students are asked to make the unit
personal by writing a journal and later on a
conversation with a partner.
Good Question! encourages students to
think about their own experiences and work with
each other to share their thoughts in English.
