Supporting English Teachers in creating Student-centred Classrooms
Educare worked with the education bureaus from the cities of Jinjiang and Chengdu to conduct a series of workshops to improve teachers’ teaching of the English language. In the city of Jinjiang, 50 English teachers from a kindergarten and various primary and secondary schools were equipped with Kagan Cooperative Learning and Active Learning strategies.
The strategies were adapted to the curriculum and they were especially useful for English teachers to create a student-centred learning environment. The various structures allowed students to have daily practice in English oral communication while working in pairs or teams. They also facilitated the development of written English language skills. Interesting and fun ways to learn and practise English language were also promoted in group class activities.
