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 9: Activate
Using the Activate games in the language classroom gives our students diverse speaking opportunities on a variety of topics in an inclusive format. Developed by the U.S. Department of State Office of English Language programs, all of the activate resources we will use in this session are available on the American English website for further use as well.
