Training for New Teachers in August and September 2021

Lauren Lang will lead two trainings for ESLIM’s new teachers this fall.

On Saturday, August 28, from 9:00 AM to noon, an interactive training will focus on helping new teachers to teach ESL classes via Zoom. During this training, participants will learn strategies and activities for helping students learn English via Zoom by participating in similar activities. We will explore various features of Zoom such as captioning, written chat and nonverbal communication, sharing screens, and breakout rooms. We will also explore some online resources you can use in conjunction with Zoom.

On Saturday, September 11, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, the in-person training at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Springfield will lead new teachers through various activities which can be used in the classroom to help students achieve desired learning outcomes. (This is our usual, pre-pandemic training for new teachers who will teach in person.)

To register for training, teachers should send their contact information, including their name, phone number, and location where they will be teaching — along with the date of the training they wish to attend — to [email protected] as soon as possible. Registrants will be acknowledged and sent relevant information prior to the training.
