Joint WORKSHOP with Inga Klinauskienė
Core values in one lesson
The teaching of values is often neglected in language education. This workshop focuses on ELT ideas, methods and activities that can be used for including values topics in the lessons. We invite teachers to discuss and discover a range of possibilities of values education that can be offered in one lesson through practical tasks designed around short videos, card games or sports. Linguistic, emotional, critical thinking development happens when students create stories and compare them to others, discuss and decide on their own core values or have fun practicing vocabulary while doing sports. Engaging and introspective activities can be used with almost any group of teenagers and will help teachers to make their lessons more active and attractive.
