My Activities are more Competent than yours


Published on

Planning activities to work on the key competences in the Primary English class is a question of awareness, of being conscious of what we do and why we do it. This session will be done "backwards": from the activity to the lesson plan, from the outcome to the objectives, focusing on competences and assessment criteria.
