Primary & Secondary school teachers
- Examine the growing role of content in teaching English as a foreign language in Primary classrooms.

- Explore CLIL to teach content in modern-day classrooms.

- Explore Art as teaching material & resources to help learners develop creative and critical thinking skills.

- (Re)discover the world of stories for content-based planning.
In this session we will examine the growing role of content in teaching English as a foreign language in Primary & Secondary classrooms. Through the lens of a pedagogic framework, we will explore the world of CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) and the potential of Art as teaching material & resources to work with content in modern-day classrooms. We will carry out a number of practical activities to help us create language-rich classroom environments and discover the world of stories for content-based planning.
The workshop has a dialogical and interactive approach.

Participants will discuss and apply concepts, work with literary texts for children, brainstorm creative teaching ideas, develop supporting teaching materials and carry out tasks in groups.
