Don’t you just love this feeling when you enter your classroom, see the friendly faces of your students, and with no disturbances you start a smooth class – positive energy, willing participants and the air filled with motivation… Only in your dreams? No stress, no fights, no shouts. Pairwork with girls willing to cooperate with boys. Instructions understood and followed. No need to pacify the hyperactive ones…
The classroom management session will take into account the following aspects: teachers and their emotions, general management rules and the mistakes teachers quite typically make, differences in managing adult and junior classes, signing learning contracts, the phases each group goes through and the problems each phase brings about, the language of addressing and instructing your students, and the tricks of grabbing the attention of your course participants.
How do you feel realising that while you’re trying to use multimedia in class, your students know so much more about them? This day will be devoted to the 21st century approaches to teaching and the use of multimedia in the classroom and in homework assignments. We will look at smartboards and what they can do for us but also discuss the whole wealth of media resources we know.
We will create vocabulary mazes and dress virtual ladies in Victorian clothes. We might even make a short movie in class, who knows. Importantly, we will discuss and agree or disagree on whether it’s all right for the teacher to know less than the student and not feel uncomfortable.
There will be time to take part and share what you know as well. We will also step back and take a critical look at teaching with multimedia and think how not to become digital slaves. A quick shock therapy will be applied as well and you will be asked to come up with activities that work when not even a blackboard is available.”
Feel free to bring your laptops, tablets, smartphones. There will be wifi and you may want to follow what is covered on your own device.
The workshop is aimed to develop your creativity and multiply ideas for revision classes. Teaching grammar and revising vocab does not have to be boring. Instead of copied exercises give your students an opportunity to reuse the material in a creative, enjoyable way. Students will love the games which are easy to adapt and alter for different needs. The exercices we will provide you are interactive, kinaesthetic and maximum fun.
When is the last time you taught a boring lesson? What haven’t you tried to avoid boring lessons?
Together we’ll start with anti-brainstorming to create the most boring class for middle school students we can imagine. Once we recognize our own bad habits we’ll work together to use natural and electronic media to make our lessons fresh and fun again.
Then we’ll introduce content and language integrated learning as an idea and explore reddit.com, the frontpage of the internet and a great place to find source material for CLIL lessons.
Finally everyone can enjoy language games and lessons from nothing for those days when the projector and/or photocopier breaks down.
Please bring your laptops/tablets/smartphones because who knows what else we’ll find.
Those of you who have attended Bulent’s multimedia workshops before will find plenty of new ideas while going back to one or two ever important hits.
Is there a universal recipe for a dynamic lesson? What can a teacher do to make sure that the classes to come will be enjoyable and fun on the one hand and effective on the other?
As much as teachers need to find an individual answer to these questions themselves and define a dynamic lesson with their own standards giving it a specific, personal touch, there is a certain frame of general rules which, when followed, guarantee an effective process, pleasurable and inspiring both for the students and for the teacher.
Participants of the session will learn and practice ways in which their lessons may improve the required dynamics. We will write group lesson plans, learn how to set motivating aims, design individual lesson plan templates and build a bank of self-assessment questions which will later help evaluate lessons without a need to have them observed. Important words for us this time will be: variety, diversification, interaction, and revision.
Slowly but surely the school year is coming to an end. How will you get prepared to finish with a big, inspiring bang instead of a big demotivated relief for a change?
The last training session we invite you to this academic year will touch four areas crucial from the point of view of an effective and motivational end of a school year: testing and evaluation of progress; giving stimulating feedback, effective and memorable end-of-year activities, and finally ways to encourage students to learn over summer.
Norman Davies wrote in the introduction to his book “Europe” about a British MP who was quoted as mentioning “1000 years of British history” in Parliament. As Mr Davies pointed out there hasn’t been 1000 years of British history, it’s only a few decades older than the U.S.A. So, you think you know what Britain is (it’s not even technically the same as the U.K. by the way!) What is Britain exactly? Where did it spring from? What does it mean to be British exactly?
We are going to bust the myths of this most miss quoted Island and find out the truth behind the stereotypes that make up GB. We will charter our way through the great British legend of a Welsh King Arthur and discover the difference between Briton and Britain. We will journey along the history of just how it was formed and from what. But, of course, it wouldn’t be really about Britain without discussing what really made it “Great” in the eyes of the world. Empire! Love it or loath it, the British Empire was not all that bad……..was it? I mean they were not Nazis. True they were not, however as we follow the history we will come across gruesome acts of war and some fine propaganda never the less.
After we have filled ourselves with history it will be time to move on to some more positive studies, now. Yes, it’s not all horror abroad in foreign lands, it is also the fruits that it brought back home. What do you know about the world and the international community? Let’s take a quiz and try some exotic traditions. But why, this is Britain? But now it’s a multi-ethnic one and there’s a whole world out there to discover in here.
There will be culture, famous people, politics and art. But most importantly at the end you will really know what makes England and Wales very different.
England and Wales; in olden times this would have been a strange hybrid. The Welsh meaning “foreigner” in old English were once “the Britons” the people that populated the vast majority of the whole of the island of what we now call Britain, speaking various old dialects of the modern Welsh from London to Aberdeen and beyond for thousand of years, they were part of Rome and enjoyed it by and large, they were the “British”. Then came the English “the foreigners”, a bunch of Germans by modern standards. And Briton became Anglia and the Britons, the Welsh and the rest is history. And now they form a single group within the U.K. that runs under the same law “English Law”, the Celtic tribes and the Germanic tribes together. One we hear about and the other we don’t. Something is not quite right in history, well history can be cruel.
That is what we are going to discover on our route through their past. All will be revealed of how the two came together through sword and fire examining the history and giving us a great opportunity to discover Wales. We will grapple with its language “Siarad Cymraeg”, see performed and perform ourselves its great folk tales from the Mabingoin.
Then moving on to England we will see the contrast with its own folklore and with Simeon Wren a trained actor, enjoy the richness of the accents even get our mouths round them. Can you speak like a “scouser”, let’s see! What will you learn by this? Well, not just language but also that English culture is not just “tea at 5” and R.P.
The Gaelic Nations. Yes, that is what they are called. Like the Slavic countries and the Romance languages these two countries have the same origins and a deep connection within their culture. However, it hasn’t always been a happy story as often with neighbours, no matter how much they share. There are still today communities in Scotland and Ireland that feel a brotherly bond and some who feel an inconsolable difference. But of course there are many who just don’t care living their daily life as a Gaelic Celt enjoying their traditions and customs. So let’s be introduced to them, try them and more importantly enjoy them.
As Scotland and Ireland both have a rich reputation for fun, where better to start than the céilí/cèilidh, there will be the warm folk music they both share blaring out and us together hopping and skipping to the tunes of bagpipes and fiddles. Now that’s a lesson!
Their rich vernaculars for story telling will be explored through Robert Burns Scots poetry and the extensive folk culture of Ireland with its many cycles of legends and books like the Lebor na hUidre “The book of the Dun cow”. Do you know your leprechauns from your banshees? Let’s see with a classic supernatural quiz as Ireland and Scotlands’ folklores are oozing with mythical creatures.
And their culture and history doesn’t just stop there, what about today? Well, we have all heard of Polish people in England and America but the Irish and the Scottish were doing the traveling thing years ago but why did they go? Where to? And what did they take? And who were the people? One thing we do know is they took their culture; St Patrick’s day in NY, céilí in nova Scotia, making them truly modern cultures.
