National AJET is proud to announce the rebirth of the Professional and Educational Resources section of the website! The Director of Professional and Educational Development, Christopher Low, has worked hard to restructure it into a navigable, intuitive collection of resources so all JETs can make the most of what AJET has to offer.
To access it, hover over the “Resources” section of the menu bar find the drop-down menu. In addition to the fantastic sections on Counselling, Daily JET Life, and Special Offers, you will find the following:
Our brand new AJET Database and Directory of Resources
This database is a collection of specific resources for ALTs, CIRs, SEAs, as well as anyone looking for translation and interpretation support. For ALTs, the database has a directory to help you find all materials and other resources strewn throughout the internet that the JET community creates or utilizes every day. Want to learn more about EFL/ESL theory? Check out some of the articles we’ve found written by experts in the field. Want a quick lesson? See if a JET Contributor has provided one that fits your needs, or follow the various links to websites like Englipedia, EFLSensei, and Busyteacher.org.
It’s alive and still growing, so if you don’t see something that fits your needs, or have something that you think others would find useful, check out the submission guidelines and send it to us. We’ll upload it ASAP!
