Using Stories in your English Classes
Sobota, 10:45 - 11:35, Blue room
The correct use of our memory is an essential prerequisite for what we successfully learn. Effective learning is dependent on how much our pupils can remember from their English classes. But how does our memory really work? How can you help your pupils learn and also remember as much as possible? The answer may sound simple – motivate them, involve them, concentrate and retain their attention. In today´s session we are going to explore in what ways the context of movie stories and the presence of their characters in primary school classes may boost your pupils´ learning efficiency and at the same time make your classes more fun.
