A 90-minute English workshop for PALSI Leaders
This workshop will provide the PALSI Leaders with the specialized language skills they need for English for the Medium of Instruction (EFMI), especially in the small group PALSI setting/session. The workshop will enhance students’ English while modelling pedagogy principles which the PALSI Leaders can adapt to their small PALSI group teaching. Short quizzes will reinforce students' knowledge. An optional follow-up in-classroom descriptive, non-judgmental observation and consultation will also be available to help students. Participants will receive CRESDA recognition for the workshop and optional observation each.
