Teach Well, Study Well!

Webinar

Teaching the Whole Student
Cultivating a positive mindset, learning to grow from failure and developing a sense of self are just some of the crucial skills our students need, particularly in these challenging times. In this talk, I will be looking at how we can use our unique position as language teachers to encourage our students both to study well and to live well.

Powering The Classroom Through Ideas
The role of the teacher is multi-faceted – not only do we have the responsibility of developing our learners’ language knowledge and skills, but also the cognitive, social and interpersonal skills they need to in order to be successful in school, work and life in the 21st century. Not least amongst these is the need to get our learners to start thinking for themselves and asking questions, rather than being spoon-fed. With examples from National Geographic Learning’s Perspectives series, in this session I’ll show how we can incorporate visible thinking routines into our lessons to not only Getting students talking and actively engaged in classroom discussions isn’t always the easiest thing. So how can we facilitate this? How can we stimulate them to actually think, ask questions and have opinions? Using examples from National Geographic Learning’s Perspectives series, in this presentation we’ll show how using authentic content and the ideas they bring can help power discussion, critical thinking and creativity in the ELT classroom.

Culture and Language in the Changing World of English

Students know that English is the lingua franca and that it is the first or official language in many countries around the world. But how much do they really know about the English-speaking world beyond stereotypes and landmarks? And how can we make them curious about culture, to investigate stereotyping and to explore changing world cultures in general? In this informative and practical session, we will look at ways to encourage secondary learners to understand, evaluate and embrace the beauty and variety of English-speaking cultures, with language and content linked in purposeful and powerful lessons.

Practical Grammar for Young Adults

As we move through a structured syllabus of English, students can lose sight of what English is. It is, after all, a communication skill whose successful usage is derived from regular practice and solid recall of grammar. To consolidate the rules and give meaning to their application, it is essential that we recognise the challenges of learning grammar but also engage learners in purposeful, relevant and engaging activities to maintain motivation and build confidence. This session looks at practical ways to take grammar presentations and exercises and create fun and memorable lessons for young adults., including interactive demonstrations using the bSmart platform.

Talk to me! Developing Speaking Skills with Teens

To learn English is to be equipped to go into the world with a global communication skill, and yet one of the biggest challenges for secondary teachers is getting students to talk. There can be all sorts of reasons why they do not engage easily in speaking activities, and not just because they might be shy. Nor should we blame their teen development too much either, because young adults are fun, playful, curious, creative and full of opinions! So we need to harness these qualities, build rapport, provide a supportive environment, scaffold the tasks, allow them some freedom and motivate them with high interest topics. This session looks at what can get in the way of a motivation to speak, and ideas to use and adapt coursebook materials to bring out the best in teen learners and get them talking!

Alcune idee per gestire la lezione di lingua inglese in classi con livelli diversi di abilità linguistiche

Una delle più grandi sfide che i docenti di lingue straniere devono affrontare ogni giorno è l’organizzazione del lavoro con studenti che presentano competenze e abilità linguistiche di livelli molto diversi nella stessa classe. Riuscire a gestire efficacemente questa complessità vuol dire anche intervenire sulla motivazione e sul successo scolastico. In questo ambito, il libro di testo può essere un prezioso alleato sia per gli insegnanti che per gli studenti, qualunque sia la metodologia didattica adottata. Nel webinar saranno presentate alcune idee di facile applicazione.

The 3Es of teaching literature – Or, who would be Horatio if he could be Hamlet?

The webinar by Silvia Ballabio, who has been teaching English literature in Licei for more than thirty years and is the author of textbooks for English literature for all courses, starts from the notion that emotional intelligence is correlated to success in effective teaching, student learning and academic performance. Positive emotional ability is not only an important factor for the mental health of adolescents but it also improves their learning ability. In DDI or DAD or post DDI and DAD learning environments a special care should be given to reinforcing emotional skills. The webinar will introduce a few examples in particular from William Shakespeare’s work Hamlet to show how the 3Es methodology (Empathy, Emotion and Education) can work in a virtuous circle to reactivate the learners’ learning skills, improve their academic performance and enrich their emotional life.

Mamma Mia! Grammar’s Here! How to Successfully Teach English Grammar

Learning a language is hard work and takes time and a lot of practice. There is also no escaping the fact that learners need to be taught a lot of grammar which lies at the heart of it all – the ‘skeleton’ if you will, for the body of language to be learned and have ‘movement’ in meaningful ways through four skills. However, we do not want English lessons to be reduced to an endless series of dull rules and lists, so we must apply effective, proven strategies and engaging activities to help the students remember grammar but also, above all, see its purposeful connection and usage in the real world. The session provides practical ideas and solutions to this challenge.

The Magic of Words – enhancing effective and efficient vocabulary teaching and learning

Speaker: Alex Warren

There are a great many number of principles to consider when maximising vocabulary learning: the need to give it deliberate attention; the need to show how words do not exist in isolation, but in partnerships and the need for learners to work out meaning for themselves and to take ownership of newly learnt vocabulary. In this hands-on session I’ll explore how National Geographic Learning titles exploit these different principles to help speed up vocabulary learning and develop greater language awareness.

Giving Students a Voice: Critical Thinking in the Elt Classroom

Speaker: Hugh Dellar

Thinking critically is seen as an essential 21st century skill, but what exactly is it and can it be taught? In this webinar, Hugh Dellar will address these issues and suggest critical thinking tasks that fit well in communicative English classes as they offer interesting opportunities for discussion, teaching language and giving young people a voice.

Sleep, Eat, Repeat – The power of repetition in the ELT classroom

Speaker: Alex Warren

Throughout the ages repetition has long been seen as a key component of education, especially language learning – practice makes perfect after all. However, for many students repeating the same thing again and again seems like the most boring thing in the world; while for some teachers it represents the antithesis of what learning a language should be. The question, therefore, is how can we bring these two opposing views together and make repetition not seem like repetition? Using examples from National Geographic Learning’s Life and Perspectives series, in this session we’ll start by briefly exploring why repetition is so important in helping students become more confident, fluent and accurate speakers. We’ll then look at a number of practical classroom ideas of how to take the monotony and boredom out of repeating the same task numerous times in a bid to build spoken proficiency.

Visual Literacy & The Power of the Image

Speaker: Alex Warren

Throughout our lives, we are the unwitting subjects of an onslaught of images. From the mobile phone in your hand to the products in your supermarket trolley; from the magazines on your coffee table to the train seat in front of you, someone somewhere is trying to convey an idea to you through messages which are primarily visual. While we have all used images to facilitate learning in our teaching – from flashcards to video – do we really know why it is so effective? This session looks at the power of images, the idea of visual literacy and how images can play an integral part in language acquisition.
