If correction works, why are we still doing it?
Many teachers don’t believe in correction because what they do doesn’t appear to achieve the results they expect.
This workshop series will :
- promote the notion that correction can have a positive effect without ever creating potential embarrassment.
- examine spoken and written correction techniques with a focus on student-centredness and achieving positive outcomes for all.
- look at verbal and non-verbal communicative techniques which can unconsciously assist or hinder student self-development.
- discover what role the ‘affective filter’ has in teacher and student performance and we’ll work on ways to bring it under control.
From Monday 1st August to Friday 5th August (or 8th-12th), with each of the five, two-hour sessions including an extra hour for questions and workshop completion.
New or experienced, open-minded language teachers who are interested in pushing their own professional limits.
At the end of the workshop series, teachers will leave with a better understanding of a variety of interesting and innovative correction techniques as well as an enhanced ability to choose and apply them in any given circumstance.
