On 10th September, 2018, a Best Practices Workshop was conducted for teachers who had been teaching the level 3 in Semester 3 of the 2017-2018 academic year. The Team Leader, Heidi Manus, coordinated the workshop and subsequently chaired it.
Twenty (20) teachers participated in the workshop and were divided into groups of four (4) to have group discussions rather than individual presentations.
To start off the workshop on a ‘sharing’ note, Ms Ruqaya Al Salhi, shared some of her ideas she used in her ‘MEC TESOL Conference’ workshop on ‘Teaching Vocabulary Differently’.
Thereafter, teachers got started on sharing their lessons, activities and worksheets in the groups they’d been assigned. The discussions in some groups were more active and positive than in others.
