Creativity can change the world @ Liceo Scientifico Teresa Gullace Talotta
Dic 13@14:30–18:30

TESOL Italy Rome Local Group 

kindly invites you to their seminar 

Creativity can change the world

Speakers: Maria Grazia Maglione M. Antonietta Ortenzi Elisabetta Vaccaro

The seminar is focused on how creativity is what has propelled us forward as a species – it expands our world and brings us new ideas, inventions and discoveries. Creativity is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality.

Furthermore, in the revised Bloom’s taxonomy “creating” is on top of the pyramid and in the framework for 21st century learning is among the skills students need to succeed in work, life and citizenship.

In the seminar we will reflect on how to encourage students to develop their creativity and engage them in meaningful activities.

The creative writing competition, which is  aimed at  students of primary, middle and secondary schools including students with special educational needs and learning difficulties, encourages creativity and self-expression,  helps develop autonomy as well as cross-curricular skills and presentation skills. Also it gives the opportunity to develop CLIL connections.

Authentic Texts, Reading Aloud and Tasks. @ SIS - School of International Studies
Feb 8@17:00–19:00

Authentic Texts, Reading Aloud and Tasks: using authentic English and creating fun tasks, which motivate middle and high school students to become autonomous readers of real English.

Presenter: John Shave, Alphabeta Picadilly, Bolzano

Moderators: Andrew Wimhurst and Graham Burton

Extensive reading is amazingly beneficial to young learners’ progress. If only we could get our students to become autonomous readers of authentic English. But how can we begin to make this happen? If you have already tried begging, bribing and threatening your students, and that still hasn’t worked, then come to this workshop to try out some fun activities which promote authentic reading through an integrated-skills, Task Based Learning approach. Participants will think about how to introduce middle and upper school learners to age-appropriate, authentic texts and how to create fun, emotionally and intellectually stimulating, interactive tasks, which allow even low-level learners to use English and motivate them to take their first steps on their personal reading journey.

OPEN REGISTRATION UNTIL ALL SPOTS ARE FULL! LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE. PLEASE REGISTER USING THE FOLLOWING LINK NO LATER THAN WEDNESDAY 6th FEBRUARY: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090449AFAE22A0F94-aworkshop

A Teacher’s Tool Kit: Developing Resources for Support, Inspiration and Resilience @ Associazione Italo Americana FVG / American Corner Trieste
Mar 13@18:15–19:45

A Teacher’s Tool Kit: Developing Resources for Support, Inspiration and Resilience

It’s easy to become frustrated, burned out and weighed down when the institutions we work for fail to provide the support, interventions and resources we need to stay inspired and energized. Teaching, like other care-giving professions, requires that that we develop the inner resources, and external support, to more easily meet life’s challenges, so we, and our students, can flourish. Join Theresa Conti, Certified Stress Management and Life Balance Coach, for this month’s program, where you will:

● Learn two simple techniques to reduce your stress and regain your balance

● Generate support, and

● Learn a 4-step process for developing inner resilience

The deadline for registration is: Wednesday, March 13, 2019
