In this workshop, teachers will discuss the central features of CLILand the demands it makes on schools, teachers and teaching materials. They will also be able to revise the most commonly usedstrategies and the structure of a CLIL lesson while they follow a teaching sequence based on CLIL principles.……………………………………………………………………………………………………FERNANDO CARLOS AMADO LÓPEZBIODATA:Fernando Amado holds the Cambridge English Proficiency certificate (CPE), and the certificate in English Language Teaching fromThomas Jefferson Institute and is currently pursuing his Master´s Degree in English Teaching from FUNIBER-Universidad de Piura.Fernando has over ten years of experience in ELT in private schools, and language centers both as teacher and coordinator.

However, some of our studentsdo not show much interest despite all our efforts. We need to make our classes more varied and creative as a means to keep ourstudents motivated and always willing to learn. In this workshop, we will develop several activities which will provide you with animportant battery of material and tips.WORKSHOP 2ON THE WAY TO TECHNOLOGY CHALLENGESTechnology is all around us and we have to be up-to-date with all these changes.

It also demands being prepared for dealing with academic content incompetitive academic settings. In this context, it is vital to help students develop skills which will help them succeed in life, such as,critical thinking skills, transferable academic skills, and others. How can we achieve this? By incorporating content in the languageclassroom.In this workshop we will explore how both, Content and Language can be integrated for effective learning.WORKSHOP 2THE ARTS AND ENGLISH TEACHING TO YOUNG LEARNERSTeaching English to young learners varies in many ways from teaching adults. One of the major differences arises from the coursedesign and the kind of tasks and activities covered in the books. More varieties of activities are needed to be used in the classroom inorder to teach young learners and make the lesson an attractive process as well as making learning effective by making use of variousintelligences and engaging different competences in the process of learning.In this workshop we will analyze the benefits of incorporating the arts in the English classroom and come out with some great ideas touse with young learners.……………………………………………………………………………………………………JEANNE LUZ ORTIZBIODATA:Jeanne Ortiz is currently following an MA in education.

She is currently working as the Academic & technologycoordinator for Macmillan Publishers in Peru.WORKSHOP 1LOTS vs. HOTSThis session will help teachers to foster higher and lower order thinking skills among students of all ages which are considered animportant educational goal. Teachers often believe that this important goal is not intended for all students. A common belief amongteachers is that tasks that require higher or lower order thinking skills are appropriate only for high-achieving students, whereas low-achieving students, who can barely master the basic facts, are unable to deal with such tasks.WORKSHOP 2CRITICAL THINKINGCritical thinking is not matter of accumulating information, but the ability to think clearly and rationally.
    • Sometimes it is believed that the thinking of our students will remain "invisible" to them. However, it is not true. It is important toprovide them of vital vocabulary, teach them how to ask good questions and think critically, in order to continue the advancement ofthe several fields we are teaching.Critical thinking involves questioning, organizing, deciding, helping our students make decisions by analyzing and evaluating facts.Why not to work then, on improving our own critical thinking skills and let our students make more intelligent decisions and be awareof them?Let´s all of us discover how to do.……………………………………………………………………………………………………RICARDO BENAVIDES SCOTTBIODATA:Ricardo Benavides holds a B.A in Latin American Studies from California State University, Hayward, and a Graduate Certificate inTESOL from San Jose State University in California.

Certainly, teaching reading cannot be thought of in terms that are at odds with the broader aims of the CommunicativeApproach. The aims are the same: to develop student autonomy, to prioritize meaning, to empower learners and to make them theprotagonists of the learning process. In this 90-minute workshop we will look at a unique proposal for engaging students in a readingand speaking activity based on the Oxford Bookworms Club Stories for Reading Circles. The activity provides a magic formula fornatural, enjoyable discussions in English, giving teachers a practical solution for the issues of how to use reading as an integralcomponent of the communicative classroom.……………………………………………………………………………………………………Organized by: Dr. MajidSafadaranMosazadeh External advisor for Southern Copper – APEC schools
