Description

Using Whole Texts to Teach Essential Skills: A Workshop for teachers of Intermediate and Advanced BE AND ESOL Learners (3 Hours)

Reading a whole book in class may seem like a big lift, but doing so focuses a class and also provides teachers with myriad opportunities to teach skills like grammar, reading comprehension, writing, and test prep. In this workshop, teachers will try out a range of activities developed with either a fictional text or a nonfiction text from the NYSED/CUNY Career Kits. Using X-word grammar, error correction, journal writing, group essay writing, question posing and test question analysis, teachers will see how skill-development activities designed around a whole text can help students become fluent speakers, readers and writers.

All NYC RAEN workshops are for teachers/staff of NYSED-funded adult education programs.

This is a three (3) hour training.
