Workshop: Engaging Students with Low Level English Skills
TEACHING AND LEARNING STRATEGIES
Students who are struggling with English in the classroom can become disengaged and lose confidence in their abilities.
As teachers, we can provide strategies for targeted support and sound teaching practice for students who are struggling with their writing, speaking and comprehension of English in the classroom.
In this practical workshop, we will explore best practice strategies for developing literacy skills and engaging learners in the classroom.
Covering the essential components of literacy, you’ll be invited to share your own experiences and strategies and learn more skills to add to your professional literacy toolkit.
