TARGET AUDIENCE: GRADE 9 TO 12 FSL TEACHERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND
As we see a trend in shifting to concept -based learning, courses which are 'compentency-based' seem to not 'fit'. In this session, we will unpack the underlying principals of concept - based learning and how it can apply to real-life units and lessons in the FSL context. Working together with groups teaching similar levels, participants will discuss applications so that everyone comes back with a deeper understanding of concepts in the sea of FSL learners. Bring a cup half full!
