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.

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.

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 always faced with challenges, which the pandemic has widened and deepened. Many teachers have had to change the way to deliver lessons overnight with little, if any help from institutions. Terms such as lost learning, catch-up, back to ‘normal’ are pervasive these days. Despite all this, teaching online heightens our awareness of what we are actually doing in the classroom. This webinar will focus on how teachers can cope with the situation and help students learn.
