Newer English Teachers WS – Wed Nov 9

How English Teachers Survive Their First Early Years

Challenges facing a newer English teacher are similar to, but not the same as other teachers.  The English teacher is responsible for improving the students’ reading and writing skills more so than any other teacher.

This workshop will introduce some strategies to help you in this regard:

  1. Managing marking
  2. Student involvement in assessment
  3. Diverse learners: assessing and addressing their needs
  4. Six Trait Writing and useful websites
Literature Circles

Attendees of the initial session will have input in deciding which of the above topics they would like to go into more deeply for subsequent sessions.

Location: John Oliver Learning Commons (across from the Main Office)
