PASS – Parents As Successful teacherS, http://www.taparents.eu
More and more parents would like to introduce a second language to their children. All parents want their children to be effective thinkers. Most teachers dream to see curious and eager to learn children when they come to school.
Parents As Successful teacherS (PASS) project (http://www.ta-parents.eu/) developed support materials for introducing a second language and developing thinking skills in the family context. The materials exist in eight different languages and are freely available online.
In this presentation I will introduce you to the materials and the principles they are based on, share the experience of some families who have used the materials, and also say a few words about how PASS materials can be adapted for the use in school.
