Speakers and topics

Top Tips for storytelling with young children – Carol Read

Stories are a powerful vehicle for developing language in the pre-primary classroom but they can also fall flat and be difficult to manage if children are not attentive and engaged. In this webinar, I will share top tips for delivering storytelling sessions successfully to young children. Taking a story from The Wheels series as an example, a wide range of practical strategies and techniques that support the discovery of new meaning and inspire children to want to join in and use English will be demonstrated and discussed.

Carol has over 30 years’ experience in ELT, is former president of IATEFL and the successful author of several Macmillan Education titles, the latest of which is the Wheels series.

Going out with a bang! – Joanne Ramsden

This term has been particularly challenging for pupils and teachers alike. We have had to adapt to a different way of learning – remote, socially distanced and wearing masks. It’s time for some fun! In this webinar we will be looking at ways to round off the term with a feel good factor by engaging your learners in an online or a face-to-face environment. Get ready for fun and games!

Joanne works full time in a Spanish state school as part of the MECD-British Council Bilingual Project. She co-authored the Macmillan Education series Give Me Five!

Revise, Reflect, Recharge! End of term activities for teenagers – David Spencer

This practical session will suggest different revision activities and tips for your teenage students to finish the term/year on a positive note…and also to create a positive mindset for the coming year. The activities will all have an emphasis on increasing students’ participation in revision to the maximum whilst at the same time encouraging them to develop all-important Global Skills such as Thinking Skills, Social and Emotional Learning, and Collaboration.

Dave teaches teenagers in Spain on a daily basis, and began writing courses for Macmillan Education in 1994. His Gateway 2ed. has been a highly successful multi-level course globally.
