Docenti di lingua inglese delle scuole private e pubbliche di ogni ordine e grado

Descrizione

L’evento riveste una particolare importanza per Trinity College London, ente certificatore che offre un portfolio di esami adatti a ogni età e abilità.
La preparazione agli esami Trinity favorisce percorsi di apprendimento stimolanti che incoraggiano la continuità orizzontale e verticale, tengono in considerazione le "mixed abilities" presenti in ogni classe e mettono in risalto i risultati raggiunti da tutti gli studenti valorizzando al contempo le eccellenze.

Per mantenere alta la motivazione e per consentire di acquisire l’autonomia e le competenze comunicative in lingua inglese necessarie a promuovere la cittadinanza globale è importante garantire agli studenti percorsi di apprendimento continuativi.
In questo seminario il team di supporto Trinity invita tutti i partecipanti a collaborare in modo positivo sui temi della continuità e delle abilità comunicative attraverso una partecipazione attiva e una metodologia ispirata a un ambiente di lavoro divertente e produttivo.
Oltre alle risorse che verranno messe a disposizione durante il workshop, il team invita i partecipanti a scambiare e a condividere i propri materiali utilizzati nella preparazione degli esami.

SCELTA DEL WORKSHOP
L’evento si aprirà con una plenaria introduttiva rivolta a tutti. Successivamente, i partecipanti seguiranno due percorsi distinti:

1) I docenti con esperienza nella preparazione di candidati agli esami Trinity seguiranno un solo workshop a scelta (Red, Violet, Orange, Blue) da indicare al momento dell’iscrizione. Il workshop è diviso in due parti e prevede una pausa dalle 13 alle 14.
2) I docenti che non hanno mai preparato candidati agli esami Trinity seguiranno al mattino il workshop di orientamento (White) e parteciperanno a un workshop pomeridiano a scelta (Red, Violet, Orange, Blue) da indicare al momento dell’iscrizione.

Tutti i docenti che partecipano al seminario potranno:
• Scoprire e condividere strategie e attività atte a promuovere la continuità nell’apprendimento e nell’insegnamento della lingua inglese
• Cimentarsi con attività pratiche concepite per favorire l’autonomia e il coinvolgimento degli studenti
• Acquisire consapevolezza delle abilità necessarie per una performance di successo negli esami Trinity
• Condividere e riflettere con i colleghi sulle attività da svolgere in classe
• Visionare i libri delle principali case editrici che producono materiali per la preparazione agli esami Trinity

Dopo il seminario i docenti che lo desiderano potranno entrare a far parte della nostra "teacher community" online dove potranno, insieme ai colleghi e ai tutor, continuare i dialoghi iniziati durante il seminario. La nostra "teacher community" offrirà inoltre l’accesso a ulteriori attività e risorse per continuare a lavorare sui temi trattati.

(White) Orientation workshop

AN A-Z OF TRINITY COLLEGE LONDON EXAMINATIONS
The White workshop is aimed at teachers from all school types who have never prepared students for Trinity exams.
The purpose of this workshop is to introduce teachers to Trinity College London’s exam suites. Participants will be invited to join in some demonstration activities which illustrate the task types from Trinity exams and highlight opportunities for teachers to engage learners in activities that can help develop key competences, while preparing students for successful performance in the exams. By the end of the workshop, participants will be familiar with the Trinity examinations offer and ready to share ideas with other teachers when joining the afternoon workshops. They will also gain knowledge of what is necessary to do in order to register students to take Trinity examinations.

(Red part I) GESE 1-4 - CEFR pre-A1-A2

HONOURING ACHIEVEMENT: ENCOURAGING LANGUAGE PROGRESS IN THE EARLY YEARS
The Red workshop is aimed at scuola primaria and secondaria di I grado teachers who prepare for Trinity’s two skill exams which test Speaking and Interactive Listening at GESE Grades 1, 2, 3, 4 (CEFR levels pre-A1, A1 and A2).
This new workshop format involves teachers working in small groups to explore and share activities that address the challenges encountered at these Grades, for example, getting learners to ask questions naturally in a one-to-one conversation, choosing appropriate topics, and avoiding memorisation and recitation during the topic phase.
Participants will take part in discussions on ways to plan their English lessons so as to build on learners’ achievements and encourage teachers to enter their students at higher levels at the end of scuola primaria and secondaria di I grado.
Work will be continued and shared with new colleagues coming from the ‘White’ workshop in the afternoon.

(Violet part I) GESE 2-5 and ISE F - CEFR A1-B1

MOVING UP: SHAPING CONTINUITY IN LANGUAGE LEARNING
The Violet workshop is aimed at scuola primaria and secondaria di I grado teachers who prepare for Trinity’s Speaking and Interactive Listening at GESE Grades 2, 3, 4, 5 (CEFR levels A1 - B1) and/or for the Trinity ISE Foundation exam (CEFR level A2).
There is often a tendency to enter a whole class at the same Trinity Grade. This very often leads to choosing a level that can suit most learners, by default penalising the weaker and the stronger ones. This approach can lead to a potential negative impact on the motivation of those learners that are excluded as well as those who are put into a level which is too easy for them. In this workshop we will look at ways of preparing learners within the same class at the level that best reflects the true abilities of each individual, as well as evaluating the opportunities offered by the Trinity learning pathways to reach all learners’ full potential so that excellent students are given the chance to demonstrate their competence, while leaving nobody behind.
Teachers will work in small groups to explore and look at ways of ensuring an effective transfer between CEFR levels, for example, preparing children as early as their second or third year of primary school for an exam at CEFR level pre-A1 or A1 (GESE Grades 1 and 2) or for an exam at CEFR level A2 at the exit of primary school (GESE Grades 3-4) so that they can sit higher levels in lower secondary school. To this effect we will also be experimenting strategies and activities to achieve higher levels in the GESE pathway or to ensure the transition from a 2-skill to a 4-skill exam at the exit of the lower secondary school, by taking advantage of the modular features of Trinity’s 4-skills ISE exams.
Participants will take part in discussions on ways to plan their English lessons in continuity between schools cycles so as to build on learners’ achievements and to encourage teachers to enter their students at higher levels at the end of scuola primaria and media.
Work will be continued and shared with new colleagues coming from the ‘White’ workshop in the afternoon.

(Orange part I) GESE 4-7 - CEFR A2-B1-B2

ONWARDS & UPWARDS: AVOIDING START-AGAIN EFFECTS TO PROMOTE CONTINUITY IN ORAL COMPETENCIES
This workshop is aimed at scuola secondaria di I e II grado teachers who prepare for Trinity’s two skill exams which test Speaking and Interactive Listening at GESE Grades 4, 5, 6, 7 (CEFR levels A2-B2).

Language learning is most efficient if students continue the studies they have already begun. To avoid start again effects, this workshop will address the challenges of building a broader repertoire of teaching strategies that are stimulating and practical to ensure autonomy and continuity of learning especially for adolescents and young adults.

Since oral competencies play a vital role at the primary level, as English language teachers at the secondary level, we must appreciate these competencies and develop them further. The graded system of the GESE exams provides a motivational tool with which to encourage learners to develop and progress by acknowledging small achievable steps.
This new workshop format involves teachers working in small groups to discuss how learners make progress at different rates and how teachers can ensure every learner reaches their maximum potential in communicating in English, for example, providing students with the opportunity to make the transition from basic to independent user starting from the biennio building on their previous learning.

One of the most common challenges students face in authentic communication is interactive listening. Teachers will share approaches and strategies to overcome and develop skills in this area. Throughout the workshop there will also be opportunities to discuss ways of guiding students in their topic choice and preparation.
Work will be continued and shared with new colleagues coming from the ‘White’ workshop in the afternoon.

(Blue part I) ISE I and II - CEFR B1-B2

EXTENDING THEIR LANGUAGE! EXPANDING THEIR WORLD!
RELATING LEARNING TO THE CONTEMPORARY NEEDS OF THE ADULTS OF THE FUTURE
This workshop is aimed at scuola secondaria di II grado teachers who prepare for Trinity’s Integrated Skills exams that test Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing at CEFR levels B1-B2.

This new workshop format involves teachers working in small groups to explore and share activities that address the challenges encountered by older teenagers and young adults in using English in an authentic and meaningful way through the use of receptive and productive modes of communication. We will also be looking at the opportunities offered by these exams that enable students to build their ISE qualification over time, taking exam modules whenever they are ready - together or at different times. In addition, we will discuss strategies to maximise learner autonomy and share activities aimed at building transferable skills required for academic study and employability.
Throughout the workshop teachers will also have the opportunity to experiment with activities that allow for a smooth transition from a B1 4-skill exam at the exit of the Biennio to a B2 4-skills exam at the exit of the Triennio.
Work will be continued and shared with new colleagues coming from the ‘White’ workshop in the afternoon.
