Why is it important to select good teaching and learning materials for young learners?

In this session, primary school teachers will be taken through some important ways on selection of materials that help make teaching and learning easy for young learners. (Primary Wing, Presenter: Ayoub Msuya)

Error correction: Should we just let it go?

Primary school teachers are a foundation for English Language Learners in the country. Correcting errors from the beginning sets a strong language foundation. (Primary Wing, Presenter: Kessia Kiwia)

Classroom Management

Is your class twenty all spaced or hundred squeezed students type of class? Whatever the number is, failure to manage your class makes it a large one. (Secondary Wing, Presenter: David Sanga)

Students as teachers

Most of the time teachers have thought of themselves as the only source of knowledge in their classes. This session will help inform teachers how they can involve their students from lesson planning to lesson evaluation. (Secondary Wing, Presenter: William Mwinuka)

Understanding and using homophones, synonyms and antonyms in speaking and writing

English language can be challenging, especially when many words are pronounced the same, but have different meanings and sometimes different spellings.

(Secondary Wing, Presenter: Professor, Dr Thomas Smith)

Competence and pedagogy techniques for secondary school teachers

Becoming competent in various teaching techniques and strategies is critical for helping students achieve their maximum learning potential. This workshop is very practical and participates will learn many new techniques they can immediately use with their students. (Secondary Wing, Presenter: Ali Hassan)

Teaching the four skills of English language usage for secondary school teachers

The four uses of language – listening, speaking, reading and writing – are the key cornerstones for using any language. This workshop presents the why, what, where, when and how to make sure that your students are developing in the use of all of these four skills. (Secondary Wing, Present Charles Msumuli
