LTE Focus Week: Report back
The Language Teacher Education unit presented workshops to teachers from the Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) during Focus Week from 29 June – 3 July 2015. The workshops were aimed at developing classroom intervention strategies for teachers working with children who are not English first language speakers.
Four different workshops were presented to almost 700 educators throughout the week and it focused on:
- Understanding how learners learn languages in multilingual contexts
- Teaching English across the curriculum
- Teaching strategies for communicative lessons
- Developing students’ academic language proficiency
The feedback from the educators was extremely positive and we would like to thank the Gauteng Department of Education as well as Matthew Goniwe School of Leadership and Governance, who made this training possible.
