Ahead of the return to school for most teachers and young learners, I am pleased to share a ten-week initial Teacher Training course for recently qualified teachers of children and young teenagers. I wrote this when I was still working as a Teacher Trainer and have updated it to place it on my blog.
After a week visiting family, I have settled back into the daily routine. I have now finished content mapping all seven levels of a Primary course, and have now moved into the next phase of the project which is to pull out all of the new and adapted YL descriptors I and my fellow content mappers have created. Interesting if slightly gruelling work.
It’s now just over a month to IATEFL where I will be presenting on the YL can-do descriptors project so come and see me doing my thing in Manchester on the morning of Monday 13th April.
Feeling pleased with myself after meeting a looming deadline for a content edit of a Lower Secondary course. It was really interesting work and the writer had done a good job of revising the draft so it was mainly a case of formatting the text and fleshing out the art and photo briefs. Now back at the grindstone doing some content mapping of a Primary course against YL can-do descriptors.
