TEACHING LIFE-SKILLS IN PRIMARY ENGLISH CLASSROOMS

TRACY DIGNAN

In primary English classrooms, we do so much more than teach English. We have the privilege of imparting knowledge across many subject areas, we have the chance to influence positive character traits, and perhaps most importantly we have the opportunity to nurture essential life-skills.

When students step outside our classrooms, how prepared are they? How well have they mastered some of the most basic life-skills? For example, can they make good choices about healthy living or personal safety?

In this hands-on workshop we will consider five basic life-skills that every child should be encouraged to master. We will demonstrate simple and effective ways to integrate the teaching of these life-skills into English language lessons.
