Thursday 30th March 2017
Morning Session: 10.30am – 12.30pm (optional)
Afternoon Session: 1.30pm – 4pm
About: This grammar training builds on training delivered in 2016 and 2015. The optional morning session with Philippa will use non-textbook materials to look at how we can introduce grammar through reading and listening tasks, to develop student engagement with the language targeted. The afternoon session with Katharine Carruthers will take a deeper look at ways in which we as teachers can explore inductive and deductive approaches to grammar teaching, and consider which approach can be more appropriate in different contexts.
We have designed this training to be flexible, so you can choose attendance for either the afternoon or the whole day. Please indicate when booking whether you will be attending both the morning AND afternoon sessions, or only the afternoon session.
