This week I had the pleasure of conducting 2 workshops with the Department of Education and teachers from Providenciales, Middle Caicos, Grand Turk, South Caicos and North Caicos to explore Language Acquisition in the Linguistically Diverse Classroom.
Itâs not uncommon to find students who are coming to school with very little knowledge of the English language. Itâs important that teachers are equipped with the mindset and strategies to help their students thrive.
In our sessions, we explored:
âï¸Creating Safe, Inclusive and Supportive Environments
âï¸Understanding Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Education
âï¸Oral Language and Vocabulary Development in the Early Years
âï¸Teaching English Language Learners
âï¸Stages of Second Language Acquisition
âï¸Approaches to English Language Learning
Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of joining the grade 5 students at Precious Treasures International School to discuss the Emotions and Learning.
The students enjoyed learning, discussing and making real life connections as to how their emotions can affect their depth of their learning and retention.
Way to go Grade 5!
Last Friday we celebrated International Literacy Day at Oseta Jolly Primary School. Mrs Guilmise and Mrs. Lorna were invited to Oseta Jolly Primary School to have a Read Aloud session with Grade 5 students. The team shared one of our favorite books, "Christopher, Clean Your Room!" by Itah Sadu. They also spoke on the importance of reading and how much fun it can be. The event was a success! Students were very engaged in the story by making predictions and drawing conclusions about the character. A big thank you to all the teachers and students of Oseta Jolly for a job well done for your commitment on promoting reading!
This week has been a treat, because I have gotten to facilitate one of my favorite education workshops two days in a row! Yesterday I worked with the staff at the International School of Precious Treasures. In addition to having a little team building fun, we explored creating inclusive classrooms.
We wish the teachers at ISTCI an awesome academic year!
Yesterday we spent our morning with Precious Treasures International School exploring Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Education. Our session was filled with lots of learning and ah-ha moments!
DEI in Education is a powerful workshop that explores the awareness of topics such as inclusion, ethnocentrism, stereotypes, unconscious bias, micro aggressions in the classroom and more.
We wish the teachers at PTIS an awesome academic year!
