Workshop: TV series

Lessons from TV series

When Ygritte uttered the words ‘you know nothing, Jon Snow’ one of the most famous quotes in TV history was born. In this workshop, I’m going to use lessons learned in my years of experience teaching and illustrate them using famous TV series quotes.

This is not only a workshop about using TV series in your lessons – although we will talk about it too and I’ll let you in on one of my biggest teaching secrets.

This is workshop is also about language awareness, class preparation, and teaching beliefs.

All of this presented through the lenses of unnoticed lessons TV series can teach us.

This workshop will address things such as:

  • Creating meaningful activities
  • Stretching your students’ language
  • Using TV series in your lessons
  • Revisiting teaching beliefs
  • Open-ended approaches to teaching
  • All this and more!

When? August 30, 2020, from 9.00 to 17.00 (including a one hour lunch break)

Where? Online via Zoom
