Upskilling your Teaching knowledge

Strategies for Engaging Language Learners – Online or In Person

Recorded: April 27, 2023

In this interactive session, you will gain ideas for creating the conditions for students to joyfully develop listening, speaking, reading and writing skills through content. You will leave the workshop with many ‘zero prep’ strategies that will encourage students to S.W.I.R.L. (Speak, Write, Interact, Read, and Listen) in every lesson.

In this session you will learn

  • Strategies that provide comprehensible input about new content
  • Strategies that lower students’ affective filter
  • Zero-prep strategies that create opportunities for students to engage with speaking, writing, interacting, and reading in every lesson
  • Strategies that work in virtual or face-to-face teaching environments
