Call for Demonstration Lessons/Activities: Due October 2nd
Do you have a lesson/activity that students enjoy and you're able to teach cooperatively with a JTE? We are looking for ALTs to teach in our SDC Teaching Showcase.
Who: You with your JTE attending (If you do not have a JTE attending with you, will will have an RPA or JPA fill the role).
What: You will teach an activity/lesson with the your attending JTE. You will have 15 minutes to teach the activity together, showing what you uniquely do as the ALT, and what you do with your JTE as a successful team. Then you will facilitate a short discussion between the JTEs and ALTs watching. An RPA will help you create the discussion questions.
If you volunteer to do this, you will not have to bring a material for the Material Fair (see below), though if you wish to, you are of course more than welcome to.
When: If you are interested or want more information please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Material Fair, Materials due by October 11th
This year we will be having a Material Fair for both High School and Municipal ALTs.
Who: If you are a 2nd-5th year ALT you MUST bring a material to showcase at our Material Fair. If you are a 1st year ALT and you have an activity that you think is useful to share, please feel free participate, but if you would prefer to only watch, you are welcome to. 1st year ALTs who do not bring materials will still attend and participate in the Material Fair, but by watching presentations and taking notes for future ideas for their own classes.
What: You MUST submit a description of your material to Meryl (either to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org) or to your RPAs using one of the templates attached to the e-mail sent out on September 22nd from email@example.com. If your material cannot be described using one the documents, feel free to change the formatting. You then must bring the material with you on SDC to show (for example, if your activity is a card game, Meryl will not be printing off all the cards, so please bring the cards with you. If you do not need physical materials, you will just explain the activity). If you volunteer to teach an activity with your JTE during our Demonstration Lessons (see above), you will not be required to submit a material.
When: Materials descriptions are due by October 11th
