  • Japan's Population Crisis: Determining the effectiveness of Japanese population policy

    Christopher Pirotto

    2016年8月

     詳細を見る

    The focus of this thesis is to determine which population policies have been effective in Japan to combat the decreasing population and low fertility rate. This thesis begins with explaining why the fertility rate has decreased in the last several decades and why the population is currently decreasing. There are many reasons why the fertility rate dropped and continues to remain well below replacement level. These reasons include high opportunity costs for women if they get married, traditional gender roles and expectations, a labor industry not conducive to a fair work and family balance, individuals choosing to live independently, a weak economy and economic concerns, and a decline of desirable partners. This thesis then explores the various policies the government has implemented in response to these problems. These policies all have the main objective of increasing the fertility rate. I hypothesize that workplace oriented policies are more effective population policies than child-rearing related policies. Original interview and survey questions were created to test this hypothesis by testing the knowledge of population policies, determine how friendly work environments are towards new parents, and measure the level of confidence in job security for individuals who wish to take advantage of policies such as childcare leave. Data was collected across four different regions in Japan between December 2014 and May 2015. At this time literature and government studies have largely ignored the issue of how effective specific population policies are. It is the hope that this thesis can provide a glimpse into which policies are not being as effective as they potentially could be while at the same time providing a blueprint and encouragement for other researchers to ask questions similar to those in this thesis.

     詳細を見る

    The Foreign Language Classroom Anxiety Scale (FLCAS) remains a popular research tool since its implementation in 1986. It has been observed that the FLCAS is a very sensitive measurement tool that is affected by cultural contexts. This poster explained why the unmodified FLCAS is not suitable for use in Japan and the steps that can be taken to modify the FLCAS for more suitable and reliable application in Japan.

  • Identifying ELL anxieties in the tertiary-level EFL classroom 国際会議

    26th Korea TESOL International Conference  Korea TESOL

     詳細を見る

    Anxiety in foreign language learners can not only have negative effects on the language learning process, but can also negatively affect the physical and mental health of language learners. Therefore, it is of moral imperative that language instructors attempt to reduce or eliminate anxiety causing factors. However, this cannot be done without first identifying those factors. This presentation will present original research into the language learning anxieties of university EFL learners. Results from a factor analysis of the Likert-based FLCAS survey identified several anxiety causing factors in a group of 156 first-year university students. Following that, the results from a post-test of the same FLCAS survey will be presented. Finally, the presenter will briefly make suggestions about specific anxiety causing factors.
