Part 1 – Keeping your Finger On the Pulse

By Alejandra Ottolina

We are about to start another school year and we are likely to face a different reality, for which we ought to get ready. Let us start by discussing what really matters in ELT. How important is grammar? Should students study new vocabulary? As teachers, what features do we need the chosen textbook to have? What should our main aims be?

In the first part of this workshop, we will also analyze practical strategies to implement together with On the Pulse 2nd Edition to guarantee enough practice and production as well as fun and the three Learning Cs: cooperation, celebration and communication.

Part 2 – Comprehensive Sexuality Education and On the Pulse 2nd Edition: ideas to incorporate CSE in your classes

By Gabriela Brun and Paola Cossu

Comprehensive Sexuality Education plays a vital role in realizing young people’s right to education, health and well-being and in achieving an inclusive and gender-equal society.

The incorporation of CSE in our classes favours a learner-centred approach and aims at equipping students with knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to make informed decisions and navigate the world as they lead healthy and safe lives.

During the second part of this workshop, we will develop some conceptual content, and share ways in which we can bring CSE into the On the Pulse 2nd Edition series and our lessons in general.

Don’t miss this great opportunity not only to learn about On the Pulse 2nd Edition but also to share experiences with colleagues!
