Building Reading Skills Through Storytelling
From television and movies, to novels and comic books, stories are all around us. A good story has the potential to truly engage, entertain, and inspire its audience. As English teachers, we should harness the power of stories to captivate our students. This webinar will help teachers to structure effective reading lessons that focus on using stories to build strong readers. .

[ELTeCS_PERU] CTS Fourth Summer Course

Dear colleagues
Happy New Year!!!
At CTS we are really proud of being members of the ELT community where we know each other and most of all, help each other. 

We closed our Academic events of 2016 with a workshop on Activities to develop skills for the 21st Century and were really touched to see how much our colleagues invest in terms of time and effort to attend all our events. We have teachers who have attended almost the nine events and new teachers who have just joined our CTS family.

This new year brings lots of challenges in education, that is why we would like to begin it inviting you to our Fourth Summer Course. As usual, the first week is modular and face-to-face (Jan 16 to 20th) and the remaining weeks will be developed online where you will have to put into practice the ICT tools that will be presented in the face-to-face session to deal with the tasks from the different modules.
We always take into account our participants´ requests and that is why this year we are offering the following modules:
  • 21st Century Skills
  • ICT in the classroom
  • Writing: the neglected skill
  • Supporting learning for children and teens
  • New trends in classroom methodology
We look forward to hearing from you soon since, as you know, we work with small groups and there are now few seats left.
All the best
