Teaching shared values in the young learners’ classroom

Presenter(s): Donatella Fitzgerald

By teaching young learners’ values we can help them develop better, find their place in society and improve their social skills.

In this practical workshop we will look at how themes in the fictional worlds of Disney stories can provide a springboard to teaching key values and Global Citizenship in an engaging way in the English Language Classroom. We will also look at how young learners can relate these values to their own lives. Ideas and activities to use in class will be used from the new Disney Kids Readers and My Disney Stars and Friends.
