    ELL PD Learning Series - March: Inspiring Apprentices: The Master Teacher’s Toolbox

    ELL PD Learning Series - March: Inspiring Apprentices: The Master Teacher’s Toolbox

    Inspiring Apprentices: The Master Teacher’s Toolbox
    As teachers, the goal of our lessons should be more than conjugating verbs, learning vocabulary and knowing the content. Ideally, we want our students to be able to use what they have learned and apply it in new settings.

    As language teachers, we want our students to be able to communicate with others to understand and be understood in their new language.

    In this workshop, we will consider the apprenticeship model and its applications to our teaching, and explore some tools of the masters to help make your learning stick, as you help your students progress along the continuum from beginner to expert communicators.

    Event held on: Thursday, March 11, 2021, from 4 to 5 pm EST.

    Many attendees asked about a tool that students can use to practice their speaking skills. You can test our proprietary tool Speak2Me here, where students can simulate a conversation with Lucy, our avatar. If you would like to learn more about this tool and how you can bring it to your students, let’s connect! Send us a message here.
