Seminar "The EFL Mixed ability classroom - Mixed ability or Mixed blessing?"
Part of the strategy "Honouring Achievement, Rewarding Excellence and Promoting Continuity"

Our teacher support events are designed for language educators who are already preparing or are planning to prepare their students for a Trinity exam.
Teachers will be invited to engage in conversations on themes that are at the heart of the Italian school system and which have always been near and dear to Trinity:
• motivating students in their learning pathways;
• planning in continuity between school cycles;
• teaching language skills that are authentic and relevant;
• exploring opportunities and challenges presented in the mixed ability language classroom.
We are bringing to you a new and innovative way of working together, with the aim of developing a real and proper Community of practice.
The Trinity Café, also available on SOFIA, is a place where language teachers and educators can share their experiences and learn from each other, a place for those new to Trinity to ask questions, and a place for us all to experience deep and meaningful conversations about those things that really matter to us.
We have chosen to host our Trinity Cafés in Italian schools in our commitment to reach out to all teachers, in every province of Italy, so that we can learn and share from each other.
Take away resources will be made available to all teachers participating in our Trinity Cafés.

Abstract

Each student approaches foreign language learning with their own mixture of motivation, skills, interests and personal experiences and therefore teachers need strategies to engage a class of diverse personalities.
By practicing differentiation, language teachers take into account the varied learning styles and abilities of all students and provide multiple paths for every student to achieve their personal best.
In our half-day TrinityCafés,we will be exploring best practices and engaging in conversations about differentiating classroom activities while exploring the opportunities offered by Trinity’s learning pathways and examinations.
This innovative and collaborative format involves teachers working in small groups to learn from each other and share activities that address the challenges encountered in today's classroom.
In this Trinity Café, we will also be experimenting with strategies and activities to reach all learners’ full potential so that all students are given the chance to demonstrate their competence and skills, while leaving nobody behind.
Together we will take part in discussions and share ideas and activities to plan our English lessons for mixed ability classrooms.
Take away resources will be made available to all teachers participating in these Café.
