A four-part teacher training workshop
As teachers we first and foremost need to know our students. Their interests, needs, goals, personalities, and learning styles are all of paramount importance for us to know if we are to be of any assistance in helping them improve their English language communication skills. But ultimately we also need to have a good grasp on the parts of speech of the English language if we hope to nurture nuanced understanding and fluent usage of them for our students. In this workshop we will take a closer look at modals, phrasal verbs, vocab strategies, and assessment, and reflect on how our teaching of certain parts of speech can be adapted to satisfy our students holistic learning needs.
Session 2: Figuring Out Phrasal Verbs
Because phrasal verbs take simple parts of speech and combine them to form new meanings, they can be tricky for English language learners of all levels. In this session we will work through some activities that can help facilitate our students’ understanding and usage of the oft-elusive phrasal verbs.
