|Challenging ELT: Challenging the Methodology to Reach Challenging Students
Do you have some challenging students in some of your classes? Do you get frustrated with current methodology? Do you want to reach these students and engage them? Do you support inclusion? Do you want to change the refrain from “I can’t” to “I can?”
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions then join us for this session.
I will outline our policy for the innovative programme, “English in Action”, teaching English through Drama, designed especially for the Ministry of Education’s Special Education department in the City of Buenos Aires, Argentina, where we are teaching English to 500 students in state special schools for inclusion.
You’ll get lots of ideas to go, whether you face the challenge in mainstream schools or special education institutions and you and your challenging students may start shouting “I CAN!”
