Creative methodology 5-day
This immersive and interesting Advancing your Professional Practice (creative methodology) 5-day course will allow participants to develop their English skills and personal classroom practice through teacher-led lectures and practical-based sessions. Having the opportunity to share your ideas with others and then actually deliver them in ‘mini lessons’ makes our course something unique and extremely appealing to the can-do teacher.
This shorter 5 day course sets out to cover the main content of the full 10 day programme, with less time spent on the practical element. A wide range of ideas will be explored, creating a forum for experienced classroom practitioners to share and discuss teaching in the modern age. Course content will include the main topic areas:
A plethora of ideas will be explored, including games, drama, music and art-based activities, to turn dry course book content into kinaesthetic, fun and memorable learning experiences.
Staying in the creative mould, the key focus here centres around using modern technology and techno-themed ideas to appeal to young English learners brought up in a modern and social mediacentric world.
THE WORLD OF ENGLISH
