New York Teacher's State of Mind: Reading Like You Mean It

“If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere,’ sang Frank Sinatra about the toughest, most astonishing city of them all, New York City.
But what does it take to make it as an effective ESL teacher in New York? And how can you best prepare your students (Ss) for success using a New York approach? 
In this four-part workshop we will explore some of the methodologies, strategies, and activities used by teachers at the City University of New York (CUNY) in the intensive CUNY Language Immersion Program (CLIP). We will work from an interactive four-skill approach—reading, writing, speaking, and listening—with a Content-Based curriculum in an Experiential Learning methodology. The essential take-aways from these workshops can be adapted to meet students’ needs in any context. Participants who attend all four sessions will receive a Certificate of Completion for “New York ESL Teaching Practices”.

Week 3 - ‘Reading Like You Mean It’

Pre-reading strategies such as activating schema, making predictions, and Visual Thinking Strategy (VTS), and reading techniques such as skimming, scanning, and supporting opinions. We will also use vocabulary building activities in support of our readings.

Please check our website or Facebook Events page for information about other 3 sessions.
