Tactics For Boosting Listening Skills in the Language Classroom
Listening is a key component in the language classroom. From podcasts to films and movie trailers, but also songs and online games to boost your students’ listening skills. I will be showing you some of the most effective tactics to incorporate listening into your language classroom together with some information about the new IB listening procedures for the upcoming exams in May 2020.

Practical examples on how to incorporate listening activities into the language classroom. Efficient activities will be presented so that they can be adapted to all types of languages.

Teaching the Vocabulary of Appeal and Book Hooks
What if we could teach students a language to speak and write in a meaningful way about the books they have just read? The impact would be an increase in free-reading and literacy learning. We have the ability to do both through teaching students to use vocabulary to describe books they have read and write book hooks, book reviews that emphasise the element of the book that "hooks" readers into reading the book.

This workshop would be relevant to primary teachers, EAL teachers, librarians, Language Acquisition or MYP Language and Literature teachers.

The outcomes of this AGIS Workshop would be:

● Teachers can describe the language of appeal
● Teachers can use the language of appeal to guide students in their free reading choices
●Teachers will learn several activities that allow their students to speak and write about books they have read

Rethinking Teaching and Learning - Innovative Approaches and Flexible Spaces
The workshop will give an overview of how we changed the teaching of German at ISD over the past few years substantially by using and applying flexible groupings, flexible learning spaces, authentic materials only and allowing and encouraging students to choose how and what they learn. Our strategies can be transferred to any other additional language learning situation. We will outline advantages and challenges of our re-thought pedagogy, including teaching and learning practices.

Some examples of innovative approaches in both teaching and learning will be shown. Our re-thought pedagogy includes a variety of components. These include the use of flexible and functional learning spaces (physical, virtual and social), the use of authentic materials and the implementation of various models of both teacher and student collaboration. The advantages and challenges that we face will be addressed. The workshop examples are taken from additional language teaching. They can be transferred to any other subject areas.
