  • 15. 7th CTJ TEFL Seminar 12 Abstracts Demostration Discussion Groups Meeting with Publishers Papers Plenaries Workshops AMERICAN INSPIRATION FOR TEENS (VIRGÍNIA GALVÃO – MACMILLAN) American Inspiration for Teens is a motivating and sophisticated six-level English course that takes teenage students from beginner to intermediate level. The material evolves with its students and the different topics reflect teenagers' changing needs and interests. The cross-curricular syllabus offers a wealth of stimulating materials relevant to the student's lives, while grammar is presented through engaging texts and dialogues. Consolidation and extension activities are designed for mixed-ability groups, with creative project work, authentic songs and games. A PIECE OF SKY (GILMAR D. DA SILVA MATTOS – CCBEU - FRANCA) Having learned more about Web 2.0 and web tools to enhance the teaching/learning process, it suddenly dawned on me everything I had seen so far was nothing but a piece of sky. In this presentation, I'll be sharing my personal experience with this endeavor and show some projects I've been involved with. ASSESSMENT & ACCOUNTABILITY TO DRIVE DEVELOPMENT FOR ELL'S (LYLE G. FRENCH – PEARSON LONGMAN) Assessment is at the heart of teaching. It is what provides teachers with clear direction to measure and obtain their goals. In this plenary we will examine the types of assessment, how to use them so that they can yield reliable information about ELL's, and how to ensure that assessment is responsive to the needs of our students. CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS: 425 YEARS OLD AND ALWAYS INNOVATING! (DANIEL DUARTE – CAMBRIDGE) In 2009 Cambridge University Press celebrates its 425th anniversary: 425 years of experience, hard work and inspiration to bring you the best in ELT. The Press aims at maintaining and extending its age-old reputation for high quality and technological innovations to meet the need of its customers. So, what is there for you? What is new? Come and find out during this session! COLLINS COBUILD DICTIONARIES (RAFAEL REIS – CENGAGE) With innovations such as DefinitionsPLUS and vocabulary builders, the Collins COBUILD Dictionaries transform the learner's dictionary from an occasional reference into the ultimate resource and must-have dictionary for language learners. The definitions have been created using a controlled vocabulary, and each definition has been reviewed by a team of classroom teachers to ensure that they are appropriate for learners at different levels. CORPUS LINGUISTICS AND TEACHING: HANDS-ON WORK WITH CORPORA (HELMARA FEBELIANA REAL DE MORAES – U.S. CONSULATE GENERAL ) This workshop aims at presenting an overview on Corpus Linguistics, a new way of studying and teaching a foreign language, with some theoretical information and suggestions on different activities the teacher can develop to work in the classroom, independent of students' level. CREATIVITY – THE KEY TO SUCCESS IN THE ENGLISH CLASS (CARLOS GONTOW – MACMILLAN / ALUMNI) "If you keep doing what you've always been doing, you're going to keep getting what you've always been getting." Being creative is a key element to motivate and involve your students in the English class. In this plenary session, we will experience creative ways to work with grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. We are going to work on activities for all age groups and all levels of proficiency. Use your creativity and turn your class into an exciting adventure of limitless possibilities and continuous success. CRE-ACTIVITY: APPLYING YOUR IDEAS IN CLASS (FABIO LUIZ AND MAKOTO YAMAMOTO – CASA THOMAS JEFFERSON) 10% inspiration, 90% desperation. That's how we feel when we do have wonderful ideas but, for some reason, they are not applied.

  • 18. 15 7th CTJ TEFL Seminar Abstracts Demostration Discussion Groups Meeting with Publishers Papers Plenaries Workshops GET UP AND GO! (JULIETTA SCHOENMANN – OXFORD) It's one thing to motivate our learners, but how do we motivate ourselves? A good teacher's guide is often at the heart of this process, offering you backup in the classroom, which then frees you up to attend to all your other professional needs. This talk explores teacher development and highlights the various directions we can go in so as to learn from our own experience and improve our teaching skills. GOING FOR GOLD (JULIETTA SCHOENMANN – OXFORD) Are your learners lacking motivation? Do you feel they are not fulfilling their potential? This talk explores ways in which we can add vitality and bring motivation through the wealth of material available in class. Ranging across the four skills, as well as grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, we explore how to get the very best out of your learners. GRAMMAR IN A COMMUNICATIVE CURRICULUM (AMANDA BRADFORD – ENGLISH LANGUAGE FELLOW - PA) With the adoption of the communicative approach into language education, where meaning and function is primary, teachers sometimes struggle with how to incorporate the teaching of grammar into the curriculum. This lecture dispels the misconception that a communicative curriculum means one without the inclusion of grammar. The lecturer will discuss several ways in which grammar can be incorporated into a communicative curriculum in meaningful ways in order to enhance students' language development. Communicative activities with a grammar focus that address all four language skills – speaking, reading, writing and listening – will be discussed. IF THE SHIP SINKS, THAT'S O.K. I HAVE THE SURVIVAL KIT! (MARINA BRAZIL AND VINÍCIUS VIEIRA LEMOS – CASA THOMAS JEFFERSON) If you are tired of the same old warmers, games and activities, this is the right session for you!

MAKING PAIR WORK AND GROUP WORK EFFECTIVE (AMANDA BRADFORD – ENGLISH LANGUAGE FELLOW - PA) Pair work and group work often play an important role in the communicative language classroom. However, making pair work and group work really work and be effective can be a real challenge for teachers. This lecture will first discuss why pair work and group work should be included in the language curriculum. Second, it will address the challenges to its implementation and offer strategies for overcoming them in the language classroom. Examples of effective pair and group work exercises for all different levels will be discussed. MOTIVATION – IN THEORY AND IN PRACTICE (CLAUDILENE SIQUEIRA GOMES MOREIRA – BRAZILIAN ENGLISH COURSE) Is it true that the motivation students take to class is the biggest single factor affecting their success? It is known that motivation is some kind of internal drive that encourages somebody to carry on. If we perceive an attractive goal, we will be strongly motivated to do whatever is necessary to reach that goal. But what kind of motivation do language learners have? What can teachers do, in theory and in practice, to arouse learners' interest and to maintain motivation? MUSIC AS A SPRINGBOARD FOR LEARNING A FOREIGN LANGUAGE (ALINE GOMES DA SILVA - UNVERSIDADE ESTADUAL DE GOIÁS / LISA STEMBEL - PRACTICAL ENGLISH COURSE) With its magical power of awakening people's memories and feelings, music can be an effective educational resource because it helps learners acquire vocabulary and grammar, develop linguistic skills and it gives the learner the opportunity to establish a parallel between their own culture and the target language culture. MY STUDENTS ARE MOTIVATED; WHAT ABOUT ME? (JORGE TEIXEIRA – PEARSON LONGMAN) In this ever-changing world, when we talk about new high tech tools, new trends in education, etc, a question remains unanswered: "How do I, as a teacher, fit into all this?" In this workshop, participants will be invited to share insights about professional development tools as well as practical ideas for successful classroom management, bearing in mind that the teacher is still the main gear in the teaching and learning environment.

In this session we will talk about successful ways to avoid L1 while optimizing the use of English in class. PHONETIC SYMBOLS ARE /g re It/! (THELMA MARQUES – ALUMNI) The main aim of this workshop is to show the importance of correct pronunciation and stress patterns in words. By using simple drawings and games, students will be involved in fun activities that will help them learn the phonetic symbols and become more independent learners. POWERING UP YOUR CLASSES WITH POWERPOINT (LILIAN MARCHESONI AND DÉBORA CABRAL LIMA – CASA THOMAS JEFFERSON) Technology can be used in many ways to become part of the curriculum and meet the needs of diverse learners. PowerPoint can add a new dimension to learning, allowing teachers to explain abstract concepts, while accommodating all learning styles. The objective of this presentation is to provide teachers with ideas to practice the grammatical and lexical points of their lessons in more communicative ways and, at the same time, engage and have fun with their students using PowerPoint. PRONUNCIATION BRUSH UP (SUMMER MARVIN – ENGLISH LANGUAGE FELLOW) The workshop provides opportunities for teaching professionals to exercise and practice their speaking “muscles”. In the session, the presenter will discuss the reasons teachers most often “lose” some of their own language skills over time and, therefore, require constant development opportunities. We will review the components involved in pronunciation and we will practice discrete sounds, rhythm, linking & blending and intonation. As a group, we will use contrastive analysis to tackle troublesome sounds and make language comparisons. The purpose of the pronunciation class is to allow teachers to practice, ask questions, and learn some useful techniques they will then pass on to their students. PRONUNCIATION FOR COMMUNICATION: THE EFFECTS OF SELECTED AND EXPLICIT TEACHING OF PRONUNCIATION TO BRAZILIAN EFL LEARNERS (RONALDO MANGUEIRA LIMA JÚNIOR – CASA THOMAS JEFFERSON) This workshop initiates with a brief presentation of some data resulting from research conducted by the presenter which will pave the way for the following demonstration of pedagogical techniques and strategies concerning the teaching of pronunciation to Brazilian EFL learners.

The presenter will also share some hands-on activities for teenage groups. PROVIDING USEFUL FEEDBACK (SUMMER MARVIN – ENGLISH LANGUAGE FELLOW) It is instrumental in the education process, and it is essential that we as language instructors learn how to provide effective feedback using an approach that is conducive to a collaborative, student-centered classroom. This session will focus on ways to give useful and effective feedback so that language learners can reach their optimal learning potential.

TEACHING ADOLESCENTS – SURMOUNTING THE DIFFICULTIES (JACK SCHOLES – SBS) This talk invites you to take a closer look at yourself as a teacher of adolescents and at the students as learners. Innovative ideas and creative techniques will be presented to help teachers experiment and try out new skills, effective beliefs and positive attitudes that enhance language learning and teaching. TEACHING AND LEARNING GRAMMAR CREATIVELY (JACK SCHOLES – SBS) Grammar does not have to be dull. The teacher can provide learner-led awareness-raising activities and motivating opportunities for the students to express themselves creatively. Grammar can be fun with lessons and activities to stimulate the imagination, humor and creativity of your students and increase the effectiveness of grammar practice.

  • 22. 19 7th CTJ TEFL Seminar Abstracts Demostration Discussion Groups Meeting with Publishers Papers Plenaries Workshops THE DYNAMICS OF DISCIPLINE (KATY COX – CASA THOMAS JEFFERSON) Is discipline a question of imposition or disposition? The word “discipline” may seem embued with regimental rigidity, but the dimensions of this concept are in fact not confined to predictable parameters. The tactics and attitudes which contribute to a disciplined learning environment are as varied as the ages and levels any teacher might deal with during a given semester. This presentation will share at least some of the proven-by-practice insights and recommendations of your fellow language teaching professionals with regard to how to effectively include dimensions of discipline in your classroom management. THE MISSING PIECE OF THE PUZZLE (RAFAEL REIS – HEINLE, CENGAGE LEARNING) This workshop will present the 'missing piece of the puzzle' for language teachers and students. It starts by surveying what we know about language learning and teaching and reviews the linguistic parameters under which this learning must take place. There will then be a review of the current state of EFL to show how we, as an industry, present language to students in a linear manner based on a 'teaching causes learning model' of language learning. Recent research into lexical analysis and vocabulary learning will highlight the relatively little recycling of vocabulary, the lack of attention to collocation, colligation and lexical phrases in general there is in typical EFL courses which vastly underestimate the amount of language students need to meet for acquisition to take place. It will also highlight the conditions under which vocabulary can be acquired. The final section will show how teachers, students and curriculum designers can provide the missing massive amounts of exposure students need to consolidate their language knowledge to enable long-term acquisition to take place. THE PERFECT ONLINE COURSE FOR EFL TEACHERS - WEB TOOLS FOR EDUCATORS (CARLA ARENA – THOMAS JEFFERSON) This presentation aims at showing educators the transformative potential of the digital world at the tip of their hands.

The TOEFL ITP is the leading on-site testing program in the world. It is convenient and affordable. More than 400,000 ITP tests are administered worldwide each year, and that number continues to grow. USING FLICKR.COM TO FOSTER EFL LEARNING IN MEANINGFUL CONTEXTS (ELYSIO SOARES SANTOS JUNIOR – CASA THOMAS JEFFERSON) This workshop aims at helping participants use this online photo management and sharing application to enhance their EFL classes on their own. The participants will be given a demonstration and will be guided to create their own Flickr accounts as well as try out some of its features. WEB TOOLS FOR ONLINE PROJECTS (ANA MARIA MENEZES – CULTURA INGLESA - UBERLÂNDIA) The web offers several tools which can be used in order to develop projects in language classes. During this talk, I intend to present some web tools and share online projects developed with EFL students. WHAT'S IN A GRADE? PRINCIPLES AND GUIDELINES FOR GRADING AND EVALUATION (WILLY C CARDOSO - ENGLISH IN THE OFFICE) What should grades reflect? How should components of a course figure into grades? Are teachers able to capture the totality of students' competence through formal tests? From this discussion, we will be able to derive some generalizations about the nature of grading, some principles of grading, and some guidelines for grading.
