Abstract :This paper reports the use of Sesame Street videos on YouTube as a promising English teaching material for Japanese elementary school teachers as a part of the in-service certified course for junior high school English teaching license. Since the Course of Study released in 2018 states that English becomes a compulsory subject for 5th and 6 graders at the primary school level in 2020, it has been an urgent and critical mission for all concerned to secure a sufficient number of qualified teachers who are capable of conducting English class to elementary school children. Therefore, the author has been involved in the administration of the certified course that trains in-service teachers and this year, offered a class for English oral communication. Due to the severe influence of COVID-19 pandemic, only three teachers participated in the class; however, the class enjoyed authentic communicative activities even with facial masks and social distancing. The author designed the language activities based on two YouTube movies with the topics of “Heroes in Your Neighborhood” and “Meeting Julia”. The materials were found appropriate as they refer to the real-life situations, i.e., the COVID-19 pandemic and acceptance of various behaviors such as of autism. Under the circumstances, the needs for publicly available online materials, both for teaching and learning, will increase in the future. The current report shows a practical example of such ICT use for a teacher training classroom.
