AUS holds English workshop for Sharakah school teachers
Teachers from eight Sharakah program schools attended the workshop Innovative Strategies in Teaching English held at American University of Sharjah (AUS) on Saturday, March 5, 2016.
Organized by the Office of Enrollment Management and the Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) Program in the AUS Department of English, the workshop was designed to help English teachers at Sharakah schools create activities they can use in the classroom.
As part of the university's community engagement strategic initiative, AUS introduced the Sharakah program to partner with select schools in the UAE to create a platform for cooperation between the university and the partner schools in various academic and non-academic areas. These include the engagement of teachers and students through training sessions and workshops, as well as cultural, social and sporting activities.
The workshop addressed a variety of issues, ranging from helping teachers sharpen their classroom observation skills and oral presentation skills to utilizing innovative strategies in adapting materials and applying techniques that enhance students' learning of English in the classroom and beyond.
The participating schools included Sharjah American International School- Dubai, Sharjah American International School- Sharjah, Al Shola School- Sharjah, Victoria International School- Sharjah, Rawafed Private School- Abu Dhabi, Liwa International School- Al Ain, Al Ma'arifa School- Sharjah and Al Najah Private School- Abu Dhabi.
