Supporting teachers who use textbooks to ‘think curricularly’

Date: Saturday 14th March Time: 4pm GMT Speaker: Kathleen Graves Title: Supporting teachers who use textbooks to 'think curricularly'   Abstract: In this webinar we will explore how to help teachers who use a required textbook to ‘think curricularly’—to understand the dynamic relationship between lessons, units, and the wider curriculum, and the central role they play in making curriculum decisions on a daily basis.  We will first look at activities in which teachers unpack the relationship between lessons, units and the overarching curriculum—that they are ‘fractals’, each involving similar curriculum processes such as needs analysis, goal setting, organizing content, and assessment, but at different [...]

Date: Saturday 25th January Time: 3 pm GMT Speaker: Jaber Kamali  Title: Effective Monkey Management in the ELT Classroom Abstract: Nowadays, the significance of implementing a learner-centered approach to ELT classroom management is widely accepted (Waters, 1998). ‘Monkey management’ – the correct assignment of responsibility for the next step in a problem-solving process (Blanchard et al. 1990) –  is an important means of achieving this, however, has not received the attention it deserves.

Team Training

  Team Training   Objectives (of the activity): To observe and share best practice by team training a teacher workshop.   Materials: Possibly your school/centre’s feedback form.   As teacher trainers and educators, we may consider observing teachers teaching and offering subsequent feedback to be an essential aspect of our role. We may also recommend that teachers carry out some form of peer observation as part of their own self-development. However, how often do we have the opportunity or time to observe other trainers or educators in order to develop our own practice? An effective way to solve the problem [...]
