Presented by Luke Meddings – Award-winning Author & Teacher Trainer.
In our first session, we explored the dynamic between the designed environment (for example paved roads) and the organic way we interact with it (resulting in the desire paths we see in parks).
This is an analogy for the way learners’ expressive needs create their own paths, diverging from the syllabus or lesson plan. Our choice as teachers is whether to follow these paths, or not.
I believe we should follow them, and in this second session of the series, we’ll see how task-light activities can support the creation of organic, non-linear learning space in our classrooms.
We’ll look at the critical relationship between non-linear learning space and real-life language use, and consider how we can best respond to learners’ emergent language needs.

Preparing for the Workshop
Our Masterclass workshops are typically delivered in 90 mins.
At Gallery Teachers, we endorse the philosophy of building on your previous knowledge and experience as opposed to just imparting knowledge on you.
Therefore, in order to prepare you for the webinar and help you activate what you already know about the topic, we will suggest two to four reflective questions for you to consider before you join the event.
You will also be given the opportunity to post your reflections, along with any questions you may already have at the pre-watching stage, to the discussion forum.
The reflective questions, as well as ideas and shared experiences posted to the forum by attendees, will be used in the real-time Q&A session in order to generate an engaging and meaningful discussion, involving the presenter and teachers from around the world.
After the event, the forum discussion will take on a life of its own and teachers will be encouraged to continue posting their experiences, reflections and questions related to the topic of the webinar. So, if you feel strongly about the topic, we will make it possible for you to take the discussion beyond the scheduled workshop and continue sharing your ideas with like-minded teachers and teacher trainers from other countries
This workshop has the following session(s). When all Sessions are completed, you will be presented with a PDF certificate. Click on the link below to access the session content.

Modelling Unplugged Circles
Another excellent masterclass by Luke Meddings. A gentle way of taking us though the concept of unplugged circles. I personally love the idea of combining both linear and unplugged models in my lessons for the main reason that it suits my teaching style , but I also believe that it benefits students and encourages them to be much more in control of their learning. I loved the example of the bunch of flowers and the simplicity of its poetry as it gives way to the imagination provides many great opportunities for emergent language and great speaking topics. Thank vey much Luke. I recommend this workshop.
