Sign Up Now - More Learning Workshop in January

More Learning, Less Teaching    
January 21st and 28th 2012 (2-day training), Saturdays, 9:00-4:00pm   
MCAEL is offering a new and exciting opportunity for teachers to examine and use some proven Adult ESOL techniques in a 14-hour training. Instructors will explore the principals of adult learning and how to structure a class. Instructors will participate in multiple classroom activities that can be used in the ESOL classroom. In addition, participants will learn about using realia in the classroom and upon completion of the course, receive a workshop bag full of materials for their own use (including Uno cards, metro maps, personal white board and more)! Finally, participants will walk-through how to plan and implement a lesson in combination with or without a textbook that fits the needs of learners. The focus of this training is on helping learners learn and how the instructor can facilitate the learning process. Along with the practical activities and theory, participants will receive a copy of the ESL Forward Instructional Manual. Location: Conference room @ Nonprofit Village/MCAEL offices*


 

"The students that I see are motivated by something very personal. They know that they need English for themselves. They want to be successful – this is our way of helping them to do it."
