Lesson2 : Homework 

My understanding of the article 

The contemporary systematic study form of L2 is able to develop L2 learner’s structure and grammatical knowledge.

However L2 learners can’t understand how to use it practically. 

Teaching of poetry writing in L2 is useful to express thier own emotions in detail .

To write poetry is not only effective for practicing to express how they feel and think but also able to heal thier scary experiences and overcome the painful past. For example, experiences of earthquakes and tsunami.

This study show that poetry writing is effective for enriching expressive power. 

In addition, L2 learners with trauma are treated by writing poetry in L2.
The best poem and my reasons 

My most favorite poem is “Japanese government ” in this article.

The outline of it is worrying about many problems of Japanese government and media .

I feel anger and confusion from this poem.

And, it’s also a little sad poem.

Six years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake.

I see the news of Fukushima, nuclear power plant and parliament everyday .

There are a lot of hard workers for reconstruction.

However there are lies and bad people.

There are good medias and kind information.

But there are extreme lies and terrible reporters.

A lot of Japanese people and I are scared and anxious .

I think that this poem is Goals of Japan.

We have to resolve all problems written in the poem.

I think that we should not forget this poem.

The words of the poem are issues for each of us.

The reason why I select it as the best in the article.
The list of 12 memories
