In a career of over twenty years writing ELT coursebooks, my co-author and I have always strived to produce materials that motivate students, make language learning memorable and, above all, promote meaningful exchanges.

A particularly important thread running through all our materials is an emphasis on personalisation and the role it can play in classrooms full of 16-18 year-olds. 

In this webinar, I will take a fresh look at the whole area of personalisation and compare and contrast personalised activities with non-personalised activities.

Many teachers using StartUp suddenly need to deliver lessons at a distance. Fortunately, StartUp’s Teacher Portal, Student Portal, Pearson Practice App, and other resources can help make distance learning efficient and effective.

Using the example of one unit from StartUp Level 2, these two webinars introduce steps teachers can take to organize their classes, choose delivery methods, encourage pair and group work, and assess progress using StartUp's digital tools.

The second webinar reinforces several teaching and learning ideas and focuses ways to teach the reading, writing, and the Put it Together activities in each unit.

Teaching grammar to classes with different needs and language levels can be stressful for teachers, and sometimes uttering the dreaded ‘grammar’ word to your students can often cause them to close their ears to that part of the lesson.

This session will guide you through the concept of scaffolding, which is to provide tasks and support so that students can understand and accomplish grammar goals more independently.
