Seminars: TBU in Ivanjica

The program Towards Better Understanding has been running for three years now. Yet, English language teachers from Ivanjica and nearby towns didn’t have the opportunity to take part until 19 the February. The seminar took place in Grammar School Ivanjica and it was attended by 36 enthusiastic teachers.

One of the trainers who ran the seminar was Željko Andrijanić who managed to “break the ice“ and “warm up“ the participants at the very beginning with his  “Warmers, Fillers and Ice-Breakers”. The teachers seemed to enjoy throwing the ice breaker ball, learning more about the presenter by asking questions and the luckiest managed to win the prize for their group in the general knowledge quiz. The afternoon session run by the same presenter was “Story Telling to Our Teenagers”. What the participants appreciated most was the fact that they were provided with the materials they could use when telling stories to their teenage students.

The participants were able to reconsider their beliefs about eliciting and asking questions in ELT  in two workshop led by Katarina Ristanović, another SITT trainer. They had a chance to learn how to respond to a question with another question if it is necessary, how to solve mysteries questioning each other and use their students as valuable resource whatever they plan to do in their classrooms.

At the end of the hard-working day the participants were invited to join ELTA and enjoy the benefits for members such as special rates for attending ELTA conference.
