English workshop with Macmillan Education - Optimising your teaching tools | Torino

h 8.30 Registration

h 9.00 Introduction

h 9.15 Teaching and assessing writing at B1 and B2 levels - Richard Twigg

Writing in English is probably the weakest skill in Italy. With this in mind, the session will look at ways of teaching and assisting students with this “forgottten skill”. In order to be able to fully support your students, you also need to be familiar with the marking/grading criteria in the tests/exams that your students will be taking.

h 10.15 Invalsi: how to approach exam preparation in class and use other Language Qualifications to your advantage - Marco Colciago

The Invalsi test is a "standard" test, very similar to those that have been used for many years now in the anglo-saxon education system. How can we prepare students for it? What are the similarities with other Language Qualifications that students might have already obtained and how can we use them to our advantage?

h 11.00 Coffee break

h 11.30 Teaching students how to listen - Richard Twigg

Listening is often seen as a passive skill and hence some believe it is not possible to actively teach students how to listen. In this session we will look at how this can be done and why students sometimes have difficulty is hearing and hence understanding everything that they hear.
