10.00 - 11.15 - Karolina Kotorowicz-Jasińska: To teach, to play, to integrate - in quest for optimal learning conditions

In the session I will try to juxtapose the basics and the challenges of the lower primary classroom. For example, one of the basic elements in the English lesson is playfulness. After all, it is young learners’ inner necessity to discover the world and learn through play. At the same time, however, it seems pretty challenging to make lessons fun for 6- and 7-year-olds simultaneously, to those pupils who can read and write and those who cannot. How can we create an optimal learning programme to cater for both? How can we respond to individual needs without disintegrating the class? These are just some of the questions the sessions will try to address. Curious? Well, you’re more than welcome to embark on the quest for answers.

11:50 - 12:50 Karolina Kotorowicz-Jasińska: Slow, simple, successful. On the evolution of grammar in upper-primary classes

Teaching grammar in the 4th grade is a formidable task. To start with, we are dealing with a special group of learners, who have just come out of the safe environment of the lower primary classroom. It’s natural that we don’t want to scare them with the multiplicity of grammatical structures, as they will soon lose their eagerness and enthusiasm. Moreover, 4th graders are still children, who expect learning to be fun and so we cannot forgo the element of playfulness, also while teaching grammar. Finally, there is a completely new demand imposed on the teacher, namely Nowa Podstawa Programowa, which stresses that the grammatical syllabus and accuracy are not the most important aims of teaching and puts communication on top of the list of teaching goals. To meet all of these requirements we need a slow release of grammar structures seen as a means of communication, all with a riddle approach to language learning. Sounds daunting? Well, come to the session for some practical ideas and find out how to kill all three birds with one stone… or coursebook.

Konferencja dla szkół ponadgimnazjalnych:

13:10 - 13:30 - Sylwia Popis: Nowa Podstawa Programowa - główne założenia i ich realizacja w kursie Gateway i nowym repetytorium maturalnym

13:30 - 14:30 - Karolina Kotorowicz-Jasińska: Grammar in context - a gateway to success in oral matura exam

The first edition of new oral matura exam is drawing near, which gives most students, and many teachers, butterflies in their stomachs. But because butterflies feel better in the meadow than in someone’s abdominal cavity, we need to think about what we can do to keep them in their rightful place in the future. In other words, it’s necessary to think about how to work with 1st and 2nd graders to make them less nervous and more confident when it’s their time to confront the exam.

One of the keys to success seems to lie in good grammatical foundations. Why don’t we go back to basics, take our students by their hands and lead them slowly but surely through the grammar syllabus. Grammar in the context of matura exam, that is. Let’s not give up on accuracy altogether and use grammar as a springboard for successful exam preparation.

P.S. Naturally, we will not forget about those in need of last-minute preparation and offer some tips on how to work with 3rd graders to squeeze from our students as much as possible in the short time left.
