Description

This three-hour workshop will explore methods of bringing an English as a Second Language (ESL) classroom to life. This workshop is perfect for new or seasoned ESL classroom teachers looking to learn new techniques and enhance their skills.

Participants of this professional development offering will interact with each other to explore a fast-paced model of a student-centered, interactive, and communicative class. We will explore ways to combine this lively model with sound classroom procedures and a structure provided by text-based lessons. This workshop will inspire, reinforce teaching skills, and motivate teachers to be thoughtful and open to new ideas within their personal style.

Jonne Smith and Stephanie Sesker are retired ESL professionals with many years of experience in classroom teaching, teacher training, and administration. Stephanie worked abroad and in the U.S. in administrative leadership positions. Both have been classroom teachers in both academic and community-based setting, and both have advanced degrees in Linguistics, TESOL, and Education.
