Using Stories in Primary School Classes
(Šárka Miková, PEARSON, seminář pro ZŠ)
The correct use of our memory is important 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 keep their attention. In today´s session we are going to see in what ways the context of movie stories and the presence of their characters in primary school classes can improve your pupils´ learning and at the same time make your classes more fun.
Make Maturita Manageable – with the 3 Ms…
(Daniel Brayshaw, PEARSON, seminář pro SŠ)
Which Maturita tasks do your students struggle with the most? How can we help them to improve in the areas they find most challenging, and at the same time encourage them feel positive about the process of preparing for Maturita? This highly practical session will attempt to deal with these important questions. During the workshop, we will see how the 3 Ms – Motivation, Memorisation and Meaningful context and practice can combine to prepare for a successful performance on the big day. The session will contain lots of easy-to-use practical ideas and tips, and will be illustrated with material taken from Pearson’s new Maturita Focus course.
How Can I Help My Dyslectic Language Learners
(Jana Chocholatá, Masarykova Univerzita v Brně, seminář pro ZŠ i SŠ)
The aim of the seminar is to point out the major difficulties that a dyslectic individual encounters when learning English as a foreign language. In the seminar, concrete hands-on examples and model activities will be presented in order to demonstrate the most important principles of teaching English to dyslectic learners. There is a wide spectrum of learning differences that teachers would like to respond to in their teaching so suggestions for further reading and inspiration will be provided.
