Teacher-training workshop

For teachers of teenager and adult learners

    Workshop structure

    A typical workshop for teachers of young learners might look something like this:

  • Short ice-breaking partner work 60-seconds non-stop talking (a fluency activity for secondary school)
  • Death and the Gardener listening to a short story, leading to partner work in a structured re-telling of the tale
  • Free Melons listening to a Nasruddin tale analysing paralanguage short whole group discussion
  • Participants are divided into two groups, each group receiving a skeleton of a different story. In small groups participants prepare a telling of their story, focusing on paralanguage
  • All participants are assembled and re-allocated with a partner who has prepared the other story
  • Participants disperse to tell their tale and listen to their partner's.
    They offer immediate feedback (Glows and Grows i.e. what was good, what can be improved)
  • Short whole group discussion on the experience of telling
  • Methodology:
