“TEA is coming on nicely”
Lugar: CEP La Laguna, 30 enero 2015
Ciudad de San Cristóbal de La Laguna, 31 de enero 2015
Duración: 15 horas
Las Jornadas de la Sociedad Canaria de Profesorado de Inglés TEA han sido durante
los últimos 30 años un referente en la formación del profesorado de inglés de nuestras islas.
Durante el año 2014, debido a la implantación de la LOMCE, hemos optado por no ofertar
actividades a la espera de los acontecimientos y, a la vez, quisimos retomar la celebración de las
mismas en el mes de enero. Por ello, hemos estado trabajando en estas 31 Jornadas de una
manera pausada y tranquila, pero siendo conscientes de la demanda por parte de uds. y del
equilibrio presupuestario.
Las 31 Jornadas se celebrarán en el CEP La Laguna –Tenerife- el día 30 de enero
(viernes) de 8:30 de la mañana a las 8:30 de la tarde con un elegido grupo de personas ponentes
con talleres para pensar, para explorar nuevas ideas, para crear, para crecer… Estas personas han
sido elegidas basándonos en las sugerencias que hemos recibido por parte de uds., siendo
algunos de ellos: Shawn Redwood, Liam Fitzpatrick, Andrea Littlewood, Imogen Thurbon,
Daniela Cecic, Caroline y Fabio Bohny, Bibiana Hernández y Monika Bayon, Chris Roland,
Patrick Deas…
La temática gira en torno a la expresión e interacción oral: nuestro alumnado tiene que
comunicarse en inglés y en estas Jornadas te ofreceremos estrategias para poder conseguirlo.
Por ese motivo, el sábado 31también visitaremos aquellos lugares de interés de la ciudad de La
Laguna y el IES Canarias Cabrera Pinto, donde su alumnado y profesorado Clil nos darán una
sorpresa. Terminarán las Jornadas en el Hotel Laguna Nivaria con Chris Roland.
Contaremos también con las últimas novedades editoriales que nos harán afrontar nuestro
trabajo con más ilusión y motivación, si cabe.
Asimismo, celebraremos la reunión anual de las personas socias para, entre otras cosas,
elegir la próxima Junta Directiva que mantendrá TEA viva otros dos años.
Anímate y participa en las XXXI Jornadas TEA:
is coming on nicely”.

“Classroom Micromechanics”
In this session we shall look at how things work in
classrooms on a nuts and bolts level. We will cover going
over exercises, getting students to listen to each other, how
we talk to our classes, how we teachers experience stress
and also how we might make tasks more productive and
students more independent.
“A Discipline Festival”
This Discipline Festival is a smorgasbord of strategies,
tips, techniques, metaphors, analogies and front line
survival tactics to increase order, organization and control in
classes. You will hear my advice on sending students out,
on those after class chats and will also get to find out what I
mean by Mountain Pass Politics, Resetting Jelly and the
Cloud Hammer.

The 4Cs of CLIL are very powerful tools in the classroom.
They can be outlined individually, but must be used as a
whole to make CLIL work in any classroom. The purpose of

authentic media.
“Combining Dictogloss and cooperative learning to
promote language learning”
An integrated skills technique for language learning in which
students work together to create a reconstructed version of
a text read to them by their teacher. This technique is
situated in relation to eight current, overlapping trends in
EFL: learner autonomy, cooperation among learners, CLIL,
focus on meaning, diversity, thinking skills, alternative
assessment, and teachers as co-learners.

1. “Think, focus, notice. Ideas and tasks for
primary learners”
In this workshop we’ll be looking at how we can help our
young learners focus more in class and take a more active
role in their learning. With ideas to keep them on task and
activities to promote noticing, our aim is to create positive
learning habits and greater awareness of how English works
both inside and outside the classroom.
2. “Creative controlled practice”
Preparing controlled practice activities to help our young
learners is not always easy. In this session we’ll be looking
at ideas for speaking and writing which will benefit weaker
students while keeping stronger students engaged. Whether
we’re dealing with class routines, course book content or
Young Leaners Tests the emphasis will be on minimum
preparation and a touch of creativity.

“Teaching Digital Natives”
Today’s students have unlimited information available via
technology tools. In addition, without technology, we run the
risk of our lessons seeming out of touch and irrelevant. The
speaker will look at the reasons why we should embrace
technology and its tools. Thus, we may realize that at the
heart of high-tech teaching, there are also some surprisingly
‘old-fashioned’ educational values.

“Set the stage for active learning”
This activity is an introduction to an active way to practice a
second language using what one already knows and learn
actively from others. With these activities the target
language is implicit and the improvisation, team building and
the acting take are worked on directly. This produces an
effect on the learning process and aids acquisition. So the
language is not a process of translating to communicate but
to directly communicate and see a direct reaction for the
