English Language Fellow Alicia Bradley was invited to present two workshops on lesson planning at the Kendari English Teachers Workshop in Indonesia. The first workshop focused on considerations for creating engaging lesson plans, and the second centered around activities to keep students engaged in class. Participants were introduced to concepts including active listening and multiple intelligence. 

Teachers were interested in learning new activities to use in their speaking classes, as well as strategies for making their listening and writing classes more compelling. For that reason, Bradley presented activities that would increase speaking time for students while still keeping them attentive in their listening and writing classes. Afterwards, participants commented that the workshop was very helpful and gave them new perspectives on teaching English.
