  • Macmillan Secondary Teachers Day

    Dear Teachers,

    Macmillan ELT have the pleasure of inviting you to the Secondary Teachers Day which will be held at the Hotel Silken Puerta de Amrica, Madrid, on Saturday 27th April.

    At the Macmillan Teachers Day our principal aim is to offer you practical training workshops that are designed to reflect current teaching contexts, enabling you to keep up-to-date with the latest innovations. You will take away with you sound activities and ideas that you can use directly in your classrooms.

    We are very pleased to welcome back Simon Ward, Senior Practitioner Educational Psychologist based in England, who will deliver the plenary on how to engage and motivate teenagers. This will be followed by a series of workshops. Susan Dreger will be giving a talk on the use of digital media to develop students language skills and promote collaboration. Fiona Mauchline, co-author of Macmillans course for ESO, Interface, will focus on ways to make learning memorable and meaningful. Her second talk will focus on the use of images and visuals to promote language learning with students. Kieran Donaghy will explore ways of using film to promote creativity and communication and finally, Donna Fields will present ideas for using comics and cartoons to support subject-based learning at Secondary level.

    As the Macmillan Teachers Day is extremely popular, we encourage you to reserve your place as soon as possible. To make registration easier, we have an online registration process.

    Images in the coursebook, images created by students, images in the minds eye all part of a teachers box of magic tricks to help make classes more motivating. But do we use them enough? This workshop will look at some activities exploiting illustrations, mobile phone images and visualisation to support skills and language work in the classroom. After all, as the song say, language is more than words.

    Fiona Mauchline Me is for memorable, meaningful: the learner-centred coursebook

    (ESO & Bachillerato)

    Current coursebooks have moved away from the describe your house/last holiday format of earlier materials as content/culture-based learning and model texts take pole position. The content may be more challenging, but is it memorable? How do we personalise it all? Where do the Me Moments come in? Fionas workshop will look at a wealth of creative, learner-centred activities to the put the Me back into memorable and meaningful lessons for teens and adults alike.

    (ESO & Bachillerato)

    In this hands-on workshop well explore how short films can be used in the classroom. Well look at how we can use short films to promote creativity, and both oral and written communication by doing communicative activities based around a variety of short films. The session will be very practical and involve a lot of teacher participation. Teachers will come away with practical activities to use with their own students.

    Donna Fields Comics & cartoons for the CLIL classroom (ESO)

    We will look at comics and picture stories from various sources which outline sequential tasks or actions that can be used as scaffolding materials, in any CLIL (or non-CLIL) classroom. We will then look at cartoons in videos, and ways in which they can also be used as educational tools. Well talk about how these venues can be designed to introduce vocabulary, new themes, and/or review material in interactive manners, including speaking, reading and writing. The presentation will be participatory as much as possible.
