Every child matters: mixed ability at primary
Help! There’s such a range of abilities in my class! I want to challenge my stronger students without the weaker ones getting left behind. Primary teachers know every child matters, but it’s sometimes difficult to attend to every child in a heterogeneous class. This practical session will propose strategies and activities which foster civic competence, build self-esteem and allow ALL students to reach their own potential.

Exam classes: success and fun, it can be done!
Many secondary school teachers are tasked with preparing their students for external exams. The development of skills and strategies as well as exam practice are key, but we can’t forget that a successful student is an engaged one. The 21st century teen can be a notoriously difficult customer to satisfy: they spend a lot of time online, like to multitask and are avid consumers of video: can we cater for this in our lessons? This session will demonstrate ideas that teens will love, while at the same time developing the skills they need to succeed.

Let’s have some fun: the Primary games extravaganza
Effective learning is linked to positive emotional experiences. Much of the best learning takes place when pupils don’t realize they are ‘working’. Both co-operation and competition can be effective. These are just some of the reasons why games have long been a must in the primary classroom. In this session we will consider the characteristics of effective games and propose (and try!) some of the best games to use at primary, from tried and tested favourites to newer offerings. We’ll also examine gamification and GBL (game-based learning), all with the aim of having fun and fostering learning.

Level Up: Going Beyond B2 in Secondary
Though the reality varies from region to region and even school to school, the standard benchmark for English proficiency for a student graduating from secondary school is a B2. But today many of our students are beginning to outgrow this level and it is no longer uncommon to find these students pushing into a C1 level (or perhaps even beyond). But what distinguishes a learner at B2 from another at C1? What extra challenges does a C1 learner bring to the classroom? And what implications does this have for us as teachers? In this session we will look at ways to help you ‘skill up’ as your learners ‘level up.’
