In this special series of online events our authors and ELT experts will explore key methodological concepts from the LOMLOE and share practical tips on how to implement them in the classroom.
Mediating texts: developing skills for life
This practical webinar will focus on why it’s important to teach text mediation. We’ll discuss how the set of skills and strategies our students develop with text meditation will be useful, if not essential, in their everyday lives. Using examples from Macmillan English Hub B1, B2 and C1, we’ll look at ways we can integrate mediation into our lessons and help our students become more effective mediators.
