Teenage learners bring with them their own sets of challenges but also tremendous opportunities. In this webinar, I’ll be looking at ways that we can overcome the challenges and harness the opportunities to create a truly motivating classroom. I’ll share some ideas on how to begin and end your lessons so that your students will start each class wanting to find out more and finish feeling positive and engaged. I’ll also give some top tips on how to develop your students’ creative and critical skills, motivating them to become more self-directed and independent.
We will also examine the features of the assessment criteria used in speaking and writing tests and how we can use these to help prepare students for the tests. To conclude we’ll consider the kind of feedback we can give our students to encourage and enable them to improve their performances.
