A Silent Way Workshop: become a better learner and a better teacher
A Silent Way Teacher Training Workshop: to become a better learner and a better teacher
Instructor: Donald Cherry
May 06, (Wed./Holiday), 2015
10:00 – 17:00 (including 1-hour lunch break)
How can we effectively subordinate teaching to learning in class without using the charts and rods traditionally used in the Silent Way?
★We are going to explore a wide variety of ideas and activities.
★We’d like to offer some of the participants a special discount on the course fee if they are willing to share any demonstrations of activities they may be doing in their classes. In addition, a special discount is available to those participating in the English the Silent Way workshop.
The students will participate in activities not previously introduced in previous workshops. The activities will NOT make use of the tools usually associated with
the Silent Way, such as rods and charts, but they will represent, to varying degrees, underlying Silent Way ideas. The class will also briefly discuss the activities and the Silent Way ideas they represent. It is believed this activity will be of benefit to the following groups for the reasons described:
☆Language students, for the language learning
☆Language teachers new to the Silent Way, for the Silent Way inspired activities
that they may find easier to use initially in their classes
☆Language teachers familiar with the Silent Way, for the discussion of theory
＊＊＊Time can also be set aside for teachers who would like to work with the class in the Silent Way, with or without traditional Silent Way teaching materials.
