A four-part teacher training workshop
As teachers we know that our teaching practice is an ever-evolving, multi-faceted thing. By this definition, it can never be ‘complete’ or finished, because we are constantly adapting to new student needs and personalities, consistently implementing new activities and technologies. And yet in spite of this openness, this very necessary incompletion of our craft, as it were, our goal—in our steadfast efforts to best serve our students—remains the same: we keep reaching to be complete teachers.
We will cover warmers, giving corrective feedback, and approaches to teaching grammar in these workshops. Participants who attend all four sessions will receive a Certificate of Completion for, aptly enough, The Complete Teacher.
Session 5: Bridging the Gap
IIdioms have figurative and often culturally-specific meanings that can be difficult for our students to understand. In this session we’ll work on some ways to help our students engage with and grasp these tricky meanings of idioms, —that is, we’ll strive to ‘bridge the gap’ between their knowledge of the literal and figurative meanings of the phrases.
