Whats in a story?
(3 to 5-year-olds)

Writing in a foreign language is a struggle when you are eight or nine years old. Children need to be motivated to encourage them to try. By personalising writing, we give our children a reason to experiment with the language and consolidate their knowledge. We will look at a range of writing activities, including a personalized dossier.

M Jess Pramo
M Jess is an experienced teacher and teacher trainer. She is also the co-author of several coursebooks. She has run methodology courses for CEPs in Madrid and has given numerous workshops at language teaching conferences around the country.

We already know how useful stories, songs and games can be for childrens language development but should they do more? The key competences (competencias bsicas) remind us of the need to focus on the whole child in a way that takes account of their physical, intellectual, social and emotional learning needs. This session aims to demonstrate a range of story-related activities that enable children to develop key competences and suggests ways in which they might be evaluated.

Kamishibai, learning on the small stage

(6 to 8-year-olds)

Storytelling is an art that people around the world share. When a story is told well, language becomes intuitive and learning inhibitions fall by the wayside. An engaging example of such presentation is Kamishibai, or paper theatre, a Japanese form of picture storytelling. In this session, we will learn how to use this fascinating way of telling stories by integrating it into circle time and developing whole class and individual activities around the paper stage.

In this session, we look at how to identify mixed ability in the secondary classroom and provide strategies for dealing with it efficiently and effectively. We shall take into consideration the setting of rules; the organising of groupwork and co-operative learning and working with different materials. We shall also consider aspects of evaluation and self-evaluation with mixed-ability groups. Some of this session will be illustrated with video footage of students from 4 ESO.

Unleashing the power of images


One of the main challenges we face when teaching natural and social science in English is helping our pupils read and write informational texts. In this practical workshop we will explore different strategies to help our pupils understand new information and concepts when they read. We will also look at a variety of activities which encourage pupils to research, write and think about content. These activities aim to help pupils become more engaged in the subject and to make their learning more meaningful and memorable.

From digital cameras to mental snapshots, images have the power to stimulate, activate and motivate. They can be springboards, centre pieces or memory hooks. They build bridges with the world outside the classroom. In this hands-on workshop we will be exploring how to unleash their power through a series of detailed, practical lesson ideas aimed at a range of levels and backgrounds.
