Beware of the fun police!
What with Critical Thinking, 21st Century Skills, PARSNIPS, the CEFR, etc, there’s a danger that we may lose sight of the elements that make a lesson fun for teachers to teach and memorable for students to learn. In this workshop I want to consider how, in the face of all those restrictions, you can keep fun and engagement central to teaching materials. So if you’re interested in injecting some extra spark into your materials, this session is for you.
What will you get out of this session? This practical workshop is about keeping fun at the centre of the materials you write. I’ll suggest ways of “choosing motivating topics and texts” adding interest to texts and dialogues ” keeping meaning central to the material at all times.
