June 11 -Reintroducing the fun in teaching English (under PBLA)

Reintroducing the fun in teaching English (under PBLA), will be held on Tuesday, June 11th. In order to accommodate the various teaching schedules, the same workshop will be offered at two different times: 3:30 to 5:00 pm and again from 6:00 to 7:30 pm.

Location: Central Calgary Public Library

The workshop will present classroom activities that reintroduce the "fun" of learning English in the PBLA context.  The presenters will show real activities that focus on students' engagement and participation while accomplishing the needs of PBLA real world tasks. 

Participants will experiment with different ways of teaching topics like: Canadian culture, employment, health while using role-play, skits and other interactive activities.  They will then brainstorm classroom activities and evaluate the assessment tools.

Finally, they will engage in an open discussion about how we, as teachers, instructors and facilitators, can reintroduce the FUN in learning English while still using PBLA.

If you would like to join us, please let us know by Thursday, June 6th. When you RSVP, please include which session you would like to attend - 3:30 to 5:00 or 6:00 to 7:30 pm.
