Language and Culture Investigated
(Rob Dean, Pearson)
Some say that it is not possible to fully appreciate a language without understanding the culture that gave rise to it. To what extent is this true? Is it relevant to focus on culture when the majority of English used in the world is between speakers of other languages? What are the problems with cultural stereotyping? These questions and more will be considered in this light hearted and hopefully entertaining look at some of the links between language and regional identity.
The Write Stuff – Developing the Writing Skill
(Rob Dean, Pearson, Teens)
Writing is often seen as the poor relation of the four skills – the one that’s left for homework because it’s not really considered a valuable thing to do in class. This session will look at some arguments in favour of using class time to develop the writing skill, and will show that far from being a boring, solitary activity, writing in class can be interactive, communicative, and even enjoyable. We will look at some approaches and activities that can be applied to develop various aspects of the writing skill.
Don’t Forget to Stretch!
(Šárka Miková, Pearson, YL)
Stretching is a very beneficial and healthy routine not only before and after your physical training but it may be also very beneficial and energy-saving routine for English teachers once you get used to in your classes. But don´t worry – you can stay sitting on your chairs as we will be talking about how to „stretch“, in other words extend and modify the exercises in the English course books with primary pupils. I am going to give you ideas how you can use other teaching aids and methods to extend the basic structure of individual course book activities so that you will get extra options for faster and brainier pupils or extra practice for those who need it. And finally you will be able to try these out personally!
Easy and Effective Ways of Learning and Teaching
(Judita Tóthová, Pearson)
Do you have problems how to attract and motivate today´s youth? Try to change everyday teaching methods for more modern and efficient ones. Our workshop offers you solutions how to integrate technology into the educational process and how to motivate students to be engaged more in their own learning. The seminar is intended for elementary and secondary school teachers who are interested in effective methods of teaching which can save their time of preparation for the lessons and provide immediate feedback on the educational process.
Drama Activities and Improvisation
(Marcela Kováčová, Gymnázium Andreja Sládkoviča)
Very few situations in real life are rehearsed in advance so it is vital that our students are provided plenty of opportunities to improvise. And as non-verbal signals take over 90% of all communication, the use of body language, voice, intonation and other aspects of language give infinite possibilities for lively and enjoyable class activities - preparation for real life not only for those aspiring to succeed on stage.
Perfekcionistický učiteľ a perfekcionistický žiak
(Beata Žitniaková Gurgová, Pedagogická fakulta UMB)
Má túžba po dokonalosti svoje miesto aj v škole? Očakávame dokonalý výkon len od seba, alebo aj od svojich žiakov, alebo okolia? Ako sa prejavuje perfekcionizmus a aké sú jeho dôsledky pre našu prácu a osobné vzťahy? Aké sú príčiny túžby po dokonalosti? Odpovede na tieto otázky budú súčasťou interaktívnej prednášky, kde si účastníci budú môcť zistiť úroveň svojich perfekcionistických úvah a tiež sa dozvedia praktické informácie, ako perfekcionizmus zvládať u seba, ale aj u žiakov.
