Fellow Implements a New Series of Methods Workshops in Bir Zeit

English Language Fellow Kelle Mason was asked to work with the newer teachers on methods for teaching reading and writing to non-English majors. In response, she implemented a series of weekly workshops open to any Professors at Bir Zeit University in West Bank, Palestine. More seasoned teachers are attending as well and are appreciative of the new ideas and resources.

Topics have included using music in the classroom, and communicative methods for teaching vocabulary. Future topics will include using games, websites and apps for teaching language, and teaching informal language such as idioms and slang. The trainings have been well received and end in lively discussions of teaching methods.
