TOPIC CONTENT

1

Motivating Teenagers In this part of the seminar, we will explore what motivates teenage students and how to tap into that resource to make the most of lessons. Grammar is notoriously difficult to teach to this group of students, so a large part of the seminar is devoted to how to make presenting, practising, and producing new grammar more interesting. There are ideas for games and activities as well as year-long reward systems based on video game mechanics.

2

Teenage Classroom Management In this part of the seminar we will discuss using the board, games and activities, seating arrangements, and disciplinary measures for effective classroom management. There will be ideas for how to stop bad behaviour before it happens and how to handle it if situations arise. Positivity in the classroom is important when dealing with this particular age group, so the techniques presented focus on positive reinforcement, routine, and setting the right expectations to avoid bad situations altogether.
