Successful activities for EAL classes
Whether you are at the start of your teaching career and are looking to build up a bank of classroom activities, or you’ve been in the classroom for years and are looking for some fresh ideas, this workshop has something for everyone. Collected during Rowena’s 25 years in the classroom, the activities presented in this workshop are based on 2 fundamental questions: “What do I want my students to do in English?” and “What do I want my students to know in/about English?”. With that as the foundation, the activities presented in this workshop will cover all 5 macro-skills as well as vocabulary and grammar development. Participants will explore:
- Zero preparation activities
- 5-minute activities
- Activities using technology
- Activities stolen from other subject areas and adapted for EAL classes
Time will also be devoted to producing activities to use in class immediately. Although the examples given in this workshop will mostly come from a Secondary context, the ideas presented are general in nature and can be applied in most Primary and Secondary classrooms.
