Life Skills Day
Join our expert speakers online for an entire day of thought-provoking talks and practical activity-filled workshops to help you introduce life skills into the ELT classroom!
Workshops: Critical thinking, time management, and organisation are just a few of the life skills educationalists and employers claim today’s students are lacking. How will acquiring these skills benefit the students? At what age can we begin to help students develop these soft skills? Starting from life skills for young learners, Jeanne Perrett and Dorothy Zemach offer practical lesson ideas on how to deliver life skills content in the classroom.
Talks: While there is a lot of research around life skills, what evidence is there to suggest that teachers should put in time and effort to teach life skills in the classroom? How will including these skills in class help students find employment or become successful? Join Rebecca Robb Benne, Robert Campbell, Rob Metcalf and more as they explore the academic validity of teaching life skills and where the greatest benefits lie.
