March 15, 2013 3:15p.m. – 4:45p.m. The Vancouver Public Library, Peter Kaye Room (downstairs in the concourse)
Our new all ETEA Professional Development event is coming!
Dan Reilander from ILSC and Matt from KGIC will present their ideas on how to use the teacher’s precious preparation time more efficiently.
First, Matt will speak about how to create fast and efficient worksheets.
Next, Dan will present on Integrating Skills in Lesson Planning.
The presentations will focus on getting the teachers to think about how they can use an activity or a worksheet for several discreet skills: reading, pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, writing, and speaking.
While the target audience is the teachers teaching Academic Preparation, the techniques could be applied to various programs and levels or even to teaching a multilevel class.
The presentations will be followed by discussions in small groups and the attendees are strongly encouraged to bring and share their own ideas on efficient planning and integrating skills.
Jean, Anita, and Marina are going to facilitate the event.
Marina will also demonstrate the current blog and invite the participants to subscribe and make their comments and contributions on paper or on-line.
Refreshments will be provided.
We are looking forward to seeing you all!
