TEACHING TECHNIQUES Brainstorming, poetry readings, interactive games, discussions of quotes, open question time (to encourage different ways of thinking ). The teacher introduces students to new information and skills, thereby building a bridge between knowledge and unawareness. TEACHING TECHNIQUES Short explanations, invited speakers, discussion panels, presentation of printed and other materials.
** SESSION DESIGN PHASESPHASES THREE FOUR PRACTICING APPLYING Provides students with opportunities for putting the new information or skill into practice in a meaningful context. TEACHING TECHNIQUES Role plays, creative writing, shared time activities, games, questioning strategies. Students "apply" their new knowledge in other fields of study. TEACHING TECHNIQUES Cooperative learning strategies, devising questions, or reflection to assess learning.
** AVAILABILITY FOR MANAGING THE CURRICULUM Our experience, supported by a considerable amount of research, shows that even the best curriculum is only as good as the skills possessed by the individual using it. The workshops offer potential program leaders a solid understanding of it and direct experience with the materials.
