The idea of teaching moody, unresponsive, bored teenagers can fill any teacher with dread. Teenagers have a reputation for being difficult to control and motivate. However, teaching teenagers can be massively rewarding and lots of fun. The Teaching Teenagers course is designed to equip teachers with the necessary skills and strategies to address the specific needs, interests and challenges of teaching this age group (12-17). Participants in the course will develop a diverse repertoire of effective teaching strategies and techniques, including classroom management skills specifically tailored to engage, motivate and facilitate successful language learning for teenagers. The emphasis of the course is practical takeaways for your classroom.
