‘Making your vocabulary teaching accessible to ALL your students’ | Fiona Mauchline Saturday, July 4, 2020 3pm
“When looking at vocabulary teaching on training courses or in resource books, the focus tends to be on lexical forms and rules, and on effective but generic learning Dos and Don’ts: “Don’t translate!” “Use realia with children!” “Drills and listen & repeat are ineffective!” “Use coloured images!” “Don’t go above the CEFR level!” and so on. However, truly effective vocabulary teaching also needs to consider the diverse spectrum of students in the room, not just words and general guidelines.
In this participative webinar, we’ll take a look at a series of tips and activities for maximising – and energising – vocabulary learning with students with ‘different’ needs: multilingual students, colour-blind students, students with hearing or sight impairment, and students who simply want or need to ‘go beyond the coursebook’. Because one-size doesn’t fit all.”
