Roll up your sleeves and let's get busy! Learning centres accomplish great things for second-language acquisition and literacy! Engage your students, including multi-level classes, with this approach that is low-prep and very high-engagement! We will explore innovation and technology as we design a very effective learning community for our second-language learners. Handouts provided and many hands-on classroom-ready activities will be shared!
Please bring a web-enabled device to gain the greatest benefit possible from the workshop. Working with the new curriculum, we will share ideas and strategies for building literacy and oral proficiency in the second-language classroom. Ideas shared will be highly motivating for our students and increase cultural awareness and competencies.
