Abstract

The aim of this workshop is to help teachers manage the class in cases when students do not bring their coursebooks to school. We will demonstrate several practical activities through which target vocabulary or grammatical structures can be taught or revised so that teachers still follow the curriculum. This should contribute to reducing stress and facilitate classroom management in such situations, but also inspire teachers to refresh their classes even when students do bring coursebooks. Finally, teachers will share their attitudes towards these activities and discuss potential problems that may occur in an atypical learning environment.

How can we teach without our textbooks?
