There is a growing understanding of the role that stories can play in learning English. Stories are highly enjoyable, and used correctly, they provide young learners with language input at the right level, they promote opportunities for interaction, and they build skills in all four areas: reading, listening, speaking, and writing. Furthermore, themes in stories can build critical thinking skills, and allow learners to explore their values and their place in the world.

In this webinar, Rachel will be discussing why and how stories can improve language skills and future skills, and how familiar stories and characters can increase motivation to read.

We will look at examples of exam prep resources and teacher tools to bridge the distance for a digital future. And a new approach to score reports that provide immediate remediation recommendations for all levels of learners. Come prepared to take some polls and contribute your thoughts to the discussion.

Teachers are familiar with online learning: classes held completely via computer or other devices like phones. Many are also experienced in teaching blended learning classes, which combine face-to-face lessons with online learning – separately.

And then there’s hybrid learning.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, many teachers have found themselves in the unexpected and challenging position of teaching hybrid classes. That is, they are teaching classes that mix groups of face-to-face and online learners. As a result hybrid-class teachers must develop a new approach to classroom management, teaching, monitoring and student engagement.

Join this round-table as our panel Autumn, Leonor, Ken and Phil Warwick discuss how they have adapted their teaching styles and methods to overcome these challenges.

Trying to process the heaviness of the past year, we tend to look at problems and challenges, forgetting all the great stuff we did. Amazingly, despite the seemingly insurmountable obstacles, what we did as teachers, was amazing, wasn’t it? In my session I will refer to and reflect on my own experiences over the last year and share some practical ideas that can support teachers in organizing online lessons to engage their students cognitively and emotionally. Let me show you how impactful our actions can be.

This session will be like the hug you really need right now. We’re going to breathe and take stock of the past year. We’ll look at how social and technological stressors have put our nervous systems under undue pressure. We’ll look the impact of that on both us as teachers and our students. We’ll revisit the self-care plans we made last year, and make a new plan together for the ongoing situation.
