May 21, 2011 Workshop hosted by Seoul Chapter

Teaching Mixed Levels
3-5 pm Saturday May 21, 2011
Room 105 Injaeguan Center, Sookmyung Women's University

Even through level testing, it is inevitable that each language class will be comprised of students at a variety of global proficiency levels and among the four skill areas: reading, writing, speaking and listening. Although many teachers dread teaching mixed level classes, there are ways to make teaching these classes easier. This workshop will discuss the advantages of mixed level classes and how you can work with, not against, your students. You will learn how to group students and use group and project work to your advantage. Tips will also be given about different activities and exercises to help your students. Lastly, you will learn about the benefits of giving students the chance to choose their own activities. The information you will obtain from this presentation can be used with any age group or class size. There will be a brief question and answer period following the presentation.
