IELTS Teacher Development Session in Neuquen

Teacher Development Masterclasses to revamp your teaching skills.


Session 1
Who is afraid of Teaching Writing? The Process Writing revolution in class with Jamie Duncan

Learners know that they have to write: often, they don’t enjoy doing it and we are reluctant to teach it. Fortunately, this isn’t the end of the story. This workshop will begin by asking why writing is frequently relegated to a homework task and then focuses on how we can help our learners engage in an interactive and enjoyable writing process, which makes for as communicative an activity as we want would all of our classes to be.

A life-long reader he is also passionate about current affairs and the way writers capture aspects of the society they live in. He has taught literature for IGCSE and A-level exams and has run a literature and culture course for the last three years. His favourite classes tend to be those involving vocabulary and lexis and he wants to share this passion with other teachers.
