Report on Workshop
Ahlcon International School firmly believes that holistic development of students as well as teachers can be attained if the passion for learning will be nurtured in each heart. So, to reinforce the desire for learning workshops play a vital role. On 17th Oct. 2014 two teachers of AIS got a golden opportunity when they were sent to attend a workshop organized by Collins at Sadhu Vasvaani International School. Dr. Elaine Higgleton enlightened the teachers about phonics, spellings and dictionary usage .
The workshop was woven very thoughtfully as each topic was discussed with the help of activities designed keeping the need of the young learners and the problems faced by the teachers. She emphasized on how sound of each letter should be taught so that the spelling errors will be minimized. The concept of mnemonics was also discussed very nicely. Not only this she also made us do role play for teaching of prose to the students. The right way of dictionary usage was also explained . Over all it was a very interactive session where learning took place while doing activities.
