Keep calm and carry on teaching teenagers! - The keys to managing and motivating teens

Teaching teenagers can be incredibly challenging on one hand, but immensely rewarding on the other. To get the most out of the experience, I’ll be sharing some of my ideas about how we can best manage and motivate secondary classes, considering key issues such as mixed abilities, discipline, online learning and effective lesson planning, suggesting both general approaches and concrete classroom activities. We will also examine what teenagers themselves think makes a great teacher.

Learning for life - The keys to preparing teens for life in and outside the classroom

In this session we will look at how to prepare teenage students for life in the 21st Century. We will look at how and why we should teach Life Skills, Thinking Skills, and Social and Emotional Learning. The ultimate aim of teaching these various skills is to help teenagers to cope with the pressures of life at school and university and also to succeed and blossom in life beyond the classroom.
