Mixing the serious with the fun: developing language and life skills with young teenagers.

Lower secondary students are ‘tweenagers’ – no longer children, but not yet young adults. Serious and interested in real-world issues on the one hand, and playful and childlike on the other. The latest findings from educational research and cognitive psychology show how important the content of our teaching is if we want to reassure tweenagers that we take them seriously for who they are. If we can do this, we will be able to build rapport with them and develop a classroom culture that they want to belong to. This will increase their motivation to learn, get them to take us and their studies seriously, lead to better language learning, and more fun – for our learners and for us as teachers.

Make Reading Matter:
support social and emotional development in young learners through stories.

In this webinar, you are going to learn about using stories for multiple purposes in the young-learner classroom. Stories are the most natural way of learning for children, and becoming familiar with the amazing potential of picture books will help you harness their magical powers. We will use examples from the Helbling Young Readers and The Thinking Train series to illustrate these goals and present you activities you can try in your young learner classes. By helping our students to develop their visual and literacy skills, we give them the tools to recognise and address their emotions and relate to others in social contexts. With their social and emotional development in mind, we will look at five different classroom goals and see how stories will help you work towards them.
