- 14:00-14:45 - Day 1
I will showcase materials I created for English Language programs in which I apply Content-Based Instruction (CBI) methods of pre-teaching of vocabulary and Think-Pair-Share for Reading/Listening/Speaking activities. The participants will be offered suggestions on how to reshape their teaching style by scaffolding and paying attention to Ss’ affective filter, cognitive load, and Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD). Although there’s a difference between ESL/EFL and CBI, some aspects of teaching methodology are applicable in both teaching contexts: we can arouse our Ss’ curiosity by being more „readable“ and in line with their interests.
