(1) iPod Activities for English Teacher Apple's iPod music and video player can be used to present audio, video, photos and slides, and the Internet provides access to a wide range of free or low-cost materials that can be used for teaching with an iPod. In this presentation Mark Neufeld will demonstrate a number of iPod-based activities for enhancing English lessons. The activities will use popular music, movie trailers, podcasts and YouTube videos, vocabulary flash cards, photo slide shows and more. We will also discuss the use of student-generated content, including video and photos.
(2) Enhancing the Graded Reading Experience This session focuses on ideas for helping students engage with graded reading and maintain motivation and interest over the course of a term and beyond. Topics include in-class activities for generating interest and sharing reading experiences, use of multi-media and publisher-supplied resources, and a variety of tips and tricks for running a successful graded reading program. Comments and questions from participants are welcome.
