Teacher Workshop Lessons (Mixed Levels)
« on: January 18, 2016, 03:09:57 pm »
I just finished 2 weeks of daily teacher work shops and I thought that I would share my materials. My classes were each 2 hours long, and attended by 5 teachers of various ability levels, my VP, and some random dude who is, apparently, loosely affiliated to the school in some nebulous, hard-to-define way.

12 lessons, grouped into 3 general topics:
        1) Culture and Current(ish) events
        2) Travel
        3) Environment

Each lesson consists of:
1) A warm-up worksheet meant to introduce the topic and vocabulary. This includes a small spelling/grammar section, and a short "discuss the picture" section.
Time to complete: 45 minutes - 1 hour.

2)  A relatively recent newspaper article that has been severely shortened, simplified, and split into 2 or 3 sections according to topic. Each section is followed by 2 or 3 questions. Each section is accompanied by a small photo to aid comprehension.
Time to complete: 35 minutes - 45 minutes.

3) A short true or false quiz for concept checking the article.
Time to complete: 5 minutes

Notes:
-No technology (aside from a printer) is required.
-No outside props/realia required (although may be helpful to prompt discussion).
-Most of the lessons went really well, although of the more "sciencey" articles were a bit difficult and may need further simplification if your class is at a lower level.

I noticed the original post says attachments part 1/3. Do you have the other 2 parts?

Oh, yeah. Sorry!

Part 2 would actually be my favourite. Some of those travel stories are pretty crazy, and I managed to draw out some equally crazy stuff from otherwise very reserved, sensible appearing teachers!  :huh:

These are great, I'm going to try use them in a teachers class I've had sprung on me! I notice the warm up for lessons 3 and 8 aren't posted, at the risk of seeming lazy and not creating warm ups myself, any chance of posting them? Cheers!

I lost those particular files, but since I had a bit of time to spare, I whipped up some replacements!
