Phonetic Awareness in Arabic for the Early Years

Date To Be Confirmed Location UAE (exact venue to be confirmed) Duration A full training day 9:00AM to 2:00PM
Workshop Overview
  1. This workshop aims to introduce teachers of Arabic to a different way of thinking about phonetic awareness in the early years. Arabic has been taught through a traditional method that gives primacy to letter name over letter sound. Even though there have been a number of attempts to move towards a more phonics-based approach to the teaching of Arabic, there is a general reluctance among teachers to change their tried and tested methods, as there is a lack of understanding of the steps that need to be taken if Arabic were to be taught effectively through phonics.

Writing in the Early Years

Workshop Overview
  1. This workshop aims to introduce teachers of Arabic to a systematic and differentiated approach to the teaching of writing in the early years.

Redefining Assessment in the 21st Century: An Introduction

Date To Be Confirmed Location UAE (exact venue to be confirmed) Duration A full training day 9:00AM to 2:00PM
Workshop Overview
  1. This workshop aims to facilitate teachers’ re-evaluation of their understanding of assessment and its practices. Moving from a philosophical approach to why and how we assess, teachers will be challenged in some of their beliefs whilst being asked to zoom out of societal expectations, compliance requirements and even personal experiences, to gain a wider and more inclusive perspective of assessment. Special attention will be given to an evolutionary trend in assessment practices, particularly relevant to the 21st century classroom.
