Smile, you're on Candid Camera

Fanselow, John

In 1993, The Japanese Association of Language Teachers produced a special edition to the use of video. I had been doing workshops around Japan illustrating ways to use short video clips of our teaching to understand better what we were doing and to generate alternatives to compare our usual practices with alternatives. The editor had participated in some of my workshops and invited me to submit an article for the special edition.

Here is the reference for the attached article: “Smile, you’re on candid camera.” 1993. Video Special Issue of The Language Teacher-- The Japanese Association of Language Teachers. Vol. 17. No. 10. October.

I revised it in 2017.
