Fellows Lead Reading and Writing Workshop in Indonesia

A two-day workshop for 25 secondary school teachers from Labuan Bajo and local rural areas was conducted by English Language Fellows Moriah Kent and Heather Phillips in Indonesia. The first day focused on a variety of pre, during, and post reading activities both elementary and high school teachers could use in the classroom to engage students. Participants learned how to incorporate graphic organizers, paired reading, running dictation, role plays and other activities into their reading classes.

The second day of the workshop focused on fun and creative activities teachers could use to improve their students’ writing. In groups, participants experienced how easy it is to introduce creative writing genres and activities into the classroom, such as poetry, short stories, story creators, images, and graphic novels. This workshop enabled participants to see how easy it is to incorporate simple, yet structured activities into the classroom that are more fun for both teachers and students.
