EA Taxonomy term (Content) - Row by date
The British Council and IATEFL have produced a new handbook for teachers' associations, called Running an Association for Language Teachers. It provides advice and ideas for how associations can run themselves successfully and provide good services to their members.
This teaching pack is based on materials developed by the British Council in co-operation with the BBC World Service. Creative Ways, a series of six radio programmes, was inspired by the British Council’s 15th Oxford Conference on Teaching Literature Overseas held in 2000. The theme of the conference was ‘From Critical Reading to Creative Writing’ and some of the key ideas that emerged were developed by the programme series.
This handbook has one simple purpose. That is, to provide some practical suggestions for language teachers. It may be that you are thinking about setting up an association or that you have already started an association and would like more ideas on certain aspects. The suggestions which are presented here are all based on the practical experience of teachers in many parts of the world.
BritLit has helped teachers from around the world to exploit English literature in the ELT classroom as a language tool. This book brings together a wide selection of useful articles all about the BritLit project.
