概要 This paper examines the use of two visual prompts within a Multi-Cultural Project (MCP)
class consisting of Japanese and foreign university students. These two prompts were
timelines and visual metaphors, and they were used to introduce an English-based content
course focusing on the study of contemporary issues affecting Japanese society. The results
reveal that visuals, particularly those which foster reflective, creative and critical thinking
skills benefit all students, regardless of linguistic ability. In the case of timelines, it provides a
valuable diagnostic tool in determining how much content knowledge students already
possess. In terms of visual metaphors, they not only allow learners to extend their current
knowledge, but also provide a platform to better understand the broader-based themes
inherent within this course.
