Program of Concurrent Sessions
10:30 a.m. – 11:20 a.m.

Auditorium 1

Changing the Culture in English Language Classrooms: Creating Space for Communication

Abstract: Currently in the João Pessoa municipal schools, most teachers move from room to room and sometimes from school to school while students stay in one place. As a result, in many cases, students “own the space,” and teachers are constantly challenged to maintain discipline, keep the noise level down, and motivate students to learn. The presenters will explain how learning can be enhanced when the situation is reversed and the teachers “own the space.” Attendees will hear from a wide range of perspectives about a project sponsored jointly by the City of João Pessoa and the U.S. Consulate-General in Recife to devote classroom space in two municipal schools for the exclusive use of English teaching. In addition, the speakers will introduce their plans to expand the number of these classrooms in the coming academic year. This presentation will be conducted in Portuguese. It is intended as an information session primarily for João Pessoa Municipal Schools principals and vice principals.

Presenters:

Edilma Ferreira, João Pessoa Secretary of Education

Gilberto Cruz, João Pessoa Superintendent of Principals

Apolônia Falcão, Principal, Padre Pedro Serrão Municipal School

The João Pessoa Municipal Foreign Language Center: Its Mission. Its Goals. Its Future

Abstract: During this session, the Director of the João Pessoa Foreign Language Center (CELEST) will provide an overview of the Center in terms of its history, its mission, and its goals. He will describe CELEST’s role as a supplement and complement to the traditional language training offered by municipal and state institutions and share his ideas about how CELEST can grow to have a greater impact on foreign language learning in the City of João Pessoa.

Communicative Classroom Activities to Enhance Listening Skills

Abstract: When we think of listening practice, most activities we do in class don’t actually focus on listening; instead, they involve grammar, vocabulary and reading. Given this gap, the purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate some practical ways to conduct listening activities in a student-centered approach.  

Presenters:

Karina Guedes dos Santos, Escola Municipal de Ensino Fundamental Francisco Pereira da Nóbrega

Encleriana Marques de Souza, Escola Municipal de Ensino Fundamental Indio Piragibe

Guided Discovery: Deductive and Inductive Approaches to Teaching English

Abstract: The presenter’s aim is to have teachers understand the student-centered nature of the guided discovery approach and how to use it as a tool to develop learners' autonomy as well as active participation in the learning process. I will be presenting two micro classes, one based on Deductive Teaching and the other based on Inductive Teaching. Then I will discuss with the audience the main differences between the approaches and focus on the advantages and effectiveness of using Guided Discovery to introduce new material in class.

Presenter:

Fábio Santos Ribeiro, Escola Municipal de Ensino Fundamental Severino Patricio/Cultura Inglesa


Auditorium 4

Language Learning Projects for Teachers and Students

Abstract: It is very important for English teachers to continue learning English throughout their careers.  And it is also very important for students to study on their own, outside the classroom.  A Language Learning Project (LLP) is a very efficient plan designed to help both teachers and students improve their language skills. During this presentation, teachers will learn how to create their own LLPs and how to motivate their students to create theirs as well.

Presenters:

Cinara Leite Guimarães, English Teacher, Escola Municipal de Ensino Fundamental Apolônio Sales de Miranda

Auditorium 1

Icebreakers as the First Step to Boost Students’ Confidence in the Classroom

Abstract: Given all the difficulties that language teachers face in the classroom, I will propose ideas and demonstrate activities to help teachers deliver more engaging and student-centered classes focusing on the use of “Icebreakers.” An “icebreaker” is a language learning activity which is used in order to ​introducepeople to each other so that they ​feel more relaxed together. Participants in this session will practice basic English and get to know one another in a relaxed, fun environment.

Presenter:

Thiago Mentor Santos, English Teacher, Escola Municipal de Ensino Fundamental João Monteiro da Franca


Auditorium 2

Teaching Vocabulary Using WordScapes in a Student-Centered Approach

Abstract: The presenters will demonstrate a communicative way of teaching vocabulary using the WordScapes material provided by the U.S. Consulate-General in Recife. The WordScapes material contains illustrated posters to be used both to introduce and to practice new words, creating an active and motivating atmosphere in the classroom. Three activities will be presented: the “Object Search Activity” to introduce a new word, the “Word First Activity” to reinforce learning, and the “Chain Story” for additional oral practice. Gifts will be given at the end of the presentation to the winners of a BINGO activity.

Presenters:

Communicative Activities to Enhance Writing Skills

Abstract: We will demonstrate activities from “The Monster Book” published by the U.S. Department of State that can liven up the language learned in the classroom and engage students in learning. Sometimes teachers forget to bring fun into their classrooms, and so we want to show that it is possible to teach writing through fun activities that are really easy to prepare and can have a wide range of variation.

Presenters:

Fabrício Alexandre da Silva, Escola Municipal de Ensino Fundamental Senador Rui Carneiro

Rafaelle de Freitas Oliveira Araújo, English Teacher, Escola Municipal de Ensino Fundamental Dr. João Santa Cruz
Auditorium 4

Reading Is FUN!

Abstract: In this workshop, teachers are introduced to Extensive Reading and how a small-scale regimen can be incorporated into English classes. The presentation covers basic explanations and principles of extensive reading and then goes into participatory activities for teachers to introduce and show their students how to enjoy reading in English. Teachers have the chance to experience the activities and ask questions as a lead-up to a discussion of how to implement this type of program in individual classrooms. Getting your students to read and enjoy it might seem too good to be true, but come and see before you decide. 

Presenter:

Laura Mizuha, English Language Specialist, U.S. Consulate-General, Recife



3:30 p.m. - 4:20 p.m.
Auditorium 1

Using Music in the Classroom to Improve and Diversify the Teaching/Learning Process

Abstract: Songs in English are an effective teaching/learning tool because when they are included in the curriculum, students are more motivated to participate in class. Learning through songs is more joyful and efficient than memorizing; furthermore, songs have a whole context of culture and grammar to be developed. During this session, the presenters will demonstrate how the song Unbreak My Heart by Toni Braxton can be used to learn new vocabulary, to explore the use of prefixes, to encourage students to communicate with each other in English, and to practice listening skills. Teachers will also learn how using student-centered, communicative activities can improve the group dynamics in their classrooms.

Presenters:

Paula MorenoVidal, English Teacher, Escola Municipal de Ensino Fundamental Angelo Francisco Notare

Fernando A. Fragoso, English Teacher, Escola Municipal de Ensino Fundamental Francisca Moura
Auditorium 2

Communicative Reading in Public Schools: Challenges and Strategies

Abstract: In this session, we will discuss teaching reading in public school English classrooms using the Communicative Approach. The goal is to prepare students to read material essential for daily life activities in the real world. In order to accomplish this, we will provide theoretical background followed by a demonstration of some activities developed in our classes. The session will conclude with a reflective discussion.

“‘Why Do We Have to Teach English Anyway?’: Class Activities to Increase Cultural Understanding”



Abstract: As teachers, many of us have heard, and many of our students have asked: “Why do I have to study English anyway?” And some complete the question with: - “if I’m never going to the USA” or: - “I don’t even know my own language.” The presenter will discuss his research on the root of this question and suggest some possible answers.

Presenter:

Fábio Evangelista Soares, English Teacher, Escola Municipal de Ensino Fundamental Zumbi dos Palmares


Auditorium 4

Motivating Students to Read: How We Use Comic Strips in Our Classrooms

Abstract: We will demonstrate an interesting way to learn English using comic strips by conducting motivating, enjoyable, and dynamic activities that encourage cooperative learning. Attendees will receive a handout with a lesson plan so that they can use these activities in their own classrooms. Reading comic strips in another language gives learners an opportunity to improve their vocabulary and enhance their cultural knowledge - all with a touch of humor.
