About this Event

Workshop Description

In this 4-week online workshop, participants will learn about and exchange ideas related to:

  • Identifying the strengths and limitations of an ESL/EFL textbook;
  • Recognizing activity types that can easily be adapted for speaking practice;
  • Using simple Color Vowel mark-ups to enhance textbook activities;
  • Using more advanced mark-ups to scaffold students' effective use of intonation, linking, reduction, and blending in their spoken English;
  • Applying all of these strategies to a chapter or unit in a textbook of the participant's choosing as part of a culminating project.

  • Thursday, April 8: 1-2:30 pm ET
  • Thursday, April 15: 1-2:30 pm ET

Who may take this course?

This course is appropriate for ESL/EFL teachers and tutors who are familiar with the Color Vowel Chart and who have read The Color Vowel Approach. You may purchase The Color Vowel Approach with any of our Get Started kits in the Color Vowel Shop or receive a digital copy of the book by taking our Level 1 Color Vowel Basics course.

Curriculum and Materials

We refer to The Color Vowel Approach (book), The Color Vowel Chart (graphic), and Blue Canoe (our AI-powered, Color Vowel-infused app) in all of our courses and workshops.

Assignments

Following each weekly session, participants are assigned a small number of performance-based tasks designed to simulate video based teaching or tutoring. We use the FlipGrid app (for desktop and/or mobile device) for these assignments.

Upon completion of this course, participants will receive a Workshop Certificate reflecting 6 hours of professional development. This course is eligible for credit as a Level 2 Elective Workshop for participants who have completed or are in the process of completing certification as a Level 1 Trained Teacher.
