What is a TeachMeet session?

A TeachMeet is an organised but informal, collaborative experience where teachers share ideas around practice – practical innovations, newly discovered resources, personal insights in teaching … anything which they consider enhances classroom practices and their children’s learning experience.TeachMeets are teacher-driven and highly participatory. Anyone who is a teacher of English in primary education can participate:

• You can take 2 -3 minutes to share an awesome activity, a dazzling discovery, an innovative idea, a super strategy, a tantalizing tip!
• You can take a little longer, 5 – 7 minutes, to explain something in more detail e.g. something you are proud of; how you overcame a difficulty; a positive learning outcome.
• You don’t need a PPT or a poster, but you can bring a resource to show and share (e.g. a book, realia, a child-made artefact).
• You can participate as a presenter of ideas / experiences.
• You can participate as a listener – but you will find it difficult to keep quiet once you hear everyone’s contributions!

Let’s share!

The event will be accredited as ‘Ação de curta duração’ (grupo 120)
