Rewrite are pleased to announce a one-day advanced training course on our creative ESOL methodology.
As nearly all teachers work with EAL and bilingual learners at some point in their careers, Rewrite has developed a unique and participatory professional development programme specifically for EAL co-ordinators and Applied Theatre practitioners. Our methodology offers an innovative, practical and creative approach to language acquisition which sets it apart from other EAL / ESOL training available.
Established in 2008, Creative ESOL is an established model of practice (featured in the British Council publication Innovations in English language teaching for migrants and refugees) for newly arrived young migrants and refugees to develop their English language skills, confidence and integration through drama and the arts. Sessions are delivered by a qualified ESOL teacher and experienced drama practitioner. Projects with young people aged 4 – 18 years are currently taking place in primary and secondary schools in Southwark, Lambeth and Islington.
After the success of our recent foundation stage training days, Rewrite are excited to offer a one-day advanced level training course for individuals who already have some experience or knowledge of the Creative ESOL model.
Course participants will gain:
* Knowledge of how to plan and deliver a Creative ESOL course
* An understanding of how to incorporate participatory arts and language learning into a scheme of work
* Knowledge of how to work towards a performance or sharing event with your students
* A larger ‘toolbox’ of activities to teach language through drama, play and the arts
* Greater confidence to implement aspects of the model appropriate to your context
* A new resource handbook to take away (including an example scheme of work)
“What a relief! Finally, a training course with pure creative ideas, hands on elements instead of theory. We need courses like this to support what really happens in the classroom”. Nasira Amin, Sheffield City Council, ESOL Tutor
