Part 1 – Ready to Hop into English!

By Alejandra Ottolina

In the first part of this workshop, we will discuss what we ought to pay attention to in order to make our lessons lively and meaningful: tempo, organization, skills development and variety, among others. Then, we will analyze strategies to make the most of Hop into English, focusing on learners’ interests and needs, and aiming at gradual production through fun activities for each section in the book.

Part 2 – ESI Approaches to working with Hop into English 1, 2 and 3

By María Paula Gravano and Romina Mangini

Since the passing of the National Law No 26,150 (Ley Nacional de Educación Sexual Integral (ESI), 2006), and subsequent National Laws, such as the Comprehensive Protection to Prevent, Punish and Eradicate Violence against Women Law (2009), the Equal Marriage Law (2010), the Gender Identity Law (2012), the Promotion of School Life and the Approach of Conflict in Educational Institutions Law (2013), the Educate in Equality Law for the Prevention and Eradication of Gender Violence (2015), and the Mandatory Gender Training Law or Micaela Law (2019), the teaching of sexuality education from an integral and gender perspective, inclusive and respectful of human diversity, has introduced important changes and new challenges at all the levels and in all areas of the school curriculum – English included.

Thus, in the second part of this workshop, we invite teachers to look at the books Hop into English 1, 2 and 3 (Macmillan Education, 2017) with the ‘ESI glasses’ on. What contents of the books can be connected, expanded or used as springboards for the development of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) curricular guidelines (Consejo Federal, 2008)? How can teachers approach and include CSE in the English lesson? We will share ideas, activities and complementary materials to make the most of within the national curricular guidelines.

Don’t miss this great opportunity not only to learn about Hop into English but also to share experiences with colleagues!
