First webinar of the 2nd series hosted by BATA

Teaching online: Levelling up Language Proficiency through Stories
by Susan Wicht on 25th of November 2020 at 5pm.

Teaching online: Levelling up Language Proficiency through Stories

Drawing on Blaine Ray’s approach of Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling (TPRS®), in this webinar Hanna-Wicht will explore how various forms of literature can be harnessed to engage students in the language classroom. She will present how a short story can be developed with the aim of levelling up both face-to-face and remote students’ proficiency, combining TPRS® methodology guidelines with online tools. Designed for beginner learners, the narrative is enriched with personalized and relevant details that scaffold learning with new vocabulary and expressions. In this way, students boost learning through retrieval and transfer to construct robust language, structure, and communicative skills. At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to use strategies that build, support and enhance learner engagement and proficiency through stories.
