Calgary January PD Session

Jan 25, 2018

Happy New Year! As you’re getting settled into your classrooms, we would like to invite you to our next ATESL session on January 25th at 6 p.m. at the Centre for Newcomers. Please RSVP to Jyoti Grewal and Irina Derevyanko at .



1.       Teach more in Less time using Authentic Online Materials: Shabana Shahzad will share how she taught Bylaws of Calgary using online authentic materials. She will also share the four tasks which she developed and used in class along with the hard copies of the tasks.


2.       Using Plain Language in the Classroom: Rabia Garewal will present on what is plain language; how to write in it; how to speak clearly and how to incorporate it into classroom practice.


3.       Perspectives on Introversion and Engagement in the Adult ESL Classroom: Research indicates that introversion is a multi-dimensional  aspect of personality that can affect how individuals learn English. Dr. Kelti Giles will present her research on how students who display introverted tendencies engage in ESL classrooms, and provide some strategies for educators in working with such students.


We look forward to seeing you there!
