In this series of workshops, we will be discussing different ways of selecting and adapting coursebook materials and looking at some effective activities to supplement your classes.
In the first session, we will be looking at some advantages and disadvantages of using coursebooks in your lessons, criteria for selecting coursebook materials, and the ways of making them more interesting and relevant to your learners and your context of teaching.
You will be introduced to three simple steps of adapting materials and see how a simple gap-fill exercise can be transformed into a personalized communicative activity. We will also experiment with some online tools that you can use to make the coursebook activities more interactive.
In the second session, we will look at different materials that require zero or very little preparation from the teacher and discuss how to use them in online and offline classrooms. We will focus on some vocabulary, grammar and speaking activities that can be used at different stages of your lessons and help you to bring more energy into your classes and vary the pace of the lesson.
These workshops will be useful for those who are making their first steps in a teaching career and for more experienced teachers. Through revisiting the ways of working with coursebooks, and sharing experiences with your colleagues, you will get a boost of creativity, a different view on using your coursebook, and will always have a set of helpful activities off your sleeve.
This Workshop is included with PRO Membership.
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
