Plan less, teach more!

Pearson Serbia and Akronolo
Conrad Kellett has been a teacher, teacher trainer and director of studies for many years, working predominately in the UK and Croatia where he currently resides. He teaches across all age ranges and is still actively teaching both primary and secondary children. He also has a number of years’ experience teaching English in a Waldorf / Steiner setting in addition to working in formal state school system. This enables him to see the best of both worlds and exploit the advantages of both. Conrad runs successful summer schools in the UK. He is also an examiner for several of the most prestigious English examinations and regularly delivers teacher training workshops on behalf of Pearson, The British Council, Study group International and View Magazine. Conrad has a passion for encouraging students (and teachers) to be creative and ambitious in lessons. He believes creativity is the key to memorable lessons and effective learning outcomes.
As teachers we can perhaps agree there is never enough time for everything we need and want to do. It is undeniable that planning is an integral part of any successful teacher’s tool kit and whilst I am not advocating ditching planning all together I feel if we are not careful we end up planning more than we are delivering. In these two workshops I hope to show you some ideas on how to use minimal planning to allow you to maximise your energy in the classroom where it really counts.
Many years of being thrown in at the deep end without a lesson plan have helped me develop activities and tasks which need no planning and generate excellent learning opportunities for students.
|13:30-14:30||Plan less, teach more (activities requiring minimal or no planning), Conrad Kellett|
The first workshop will focus on some concrete ideas you can take into class the next day it will be fun, fast paced and functional . The activities can be adapted to cover all age groups and are often perfect for differentiation within a class.
|15:00-16:00||How to create movement in the classroom, Conrad Kellett|
In the second workshop we will look at using movement to enhance our students learning, interest and motivation. Our elementary biology classes probably taught us that oxygen is vital for brain function and that improved blood flow increases the amount of oxygen transported to the brain. Movement is a reliable way to raise blood flow, and hence oxygen to the brain. I will share you a series of activities involving movement that are both fun and effective learning strategies. These activities bear in mind the constraint of the modern classroom and curriculum and make the best use of the space you have or have not at your disposal.
