LAKMA and the US Embassy invite English teachers to a professional development workshop


Workshop instructor Cristina BERRY

Target group: English teachers of young learners and young teenagers.

Workshop themes: vocabulary games, grammar games, oral communication games. Workshop participants will discover techniques that make vocabulary come to life as they learn by doing. Teachers will become students as they play games and learn about activities that can be tailored to meet the needs of any classroom. The workshop will also introduce teachers to 3-dimensional tools for learning known as foldables. Teachers will make their own sample foldables and have access to a number of foldable templates. They will also learn about grammar task cards and the various ways in which they can be used in the classroom. In this workshop, participants will have an opportunity to try out various language board games, make their own board games as well as learn about popular websites for English language learning.
A special gift: All participants will be presented with a set of 11 ready-to-use board games with directions for 43 extra activities. The games are donated by the Regional English Language Office and the U.S. Embassy.
