Last weekend IH British School Reggio Calabria was delighted to host the IH South Italy Conference, “(Etna) From the Other Side”, and welcome fellow teachers from IH Giga Catania and IH Palermo Language Centre. The conference, which takes place annually at one of the Southern Italian IH schools, offers an occasion for the teachers in those schools to pool their knowledge and share some of their favourite teaching ideas.
A total of twelve workshops were delivered by teachers from the three different schools, covering a range of topics such as use of music, videogames and stories in the EFL classroom, classroom management with YL, low-prep and photocopy-free activities, inclusiveness, innovative ideas for writing and gapfills, the forgotten senses, assessment and so much more!
Teachers left the conference feeling energized and with a bag of new tricks and tips in hand to help prepare more effective, inclusive and engaging lessons. To end the day, conference participants enjoyed each other’s company, while relaxing over a delicious, Calabrian dinner in an elegant restaurant overlooking the Messina Straits.
Everyone’s looking forward to next year’s conference, which will be hosted by one of the Sicilian IH schools.
