Results and potential Long-term benefits:
Teachers will gain practical ideas on how to motivate and engage mixed-ability classes; how to plan fun class activities to energize and engage kids; how to motivate and support young learners in their attempts to write in English; and, learn tips and techniques for teaching young learners more efficiently. All this will help to make learning more fun and effective.
