Saturday Workshops - As the program begins, ASB offers day-long
workshops to participants on themes such as literacy, math, science,
differentiation, and assessment. Additionally, it runs embedded strands on
creating a positive classroom culture and understanding and supporting
language learners in each workshop. After successful participation in the
program, the participants are awarded a certificate.
To ASB teachers, these workshops offer the opportunity to learn and
unpack pedagogy and instructional practices into deliverable modules for
local teachers. It also offers the opportunity to practice differentiating their
own workshops as local teachers come with varied level of experience in
teaching and with English language competencies. As we all know, speaking
in front of groups is a challenge for most adults. TTP is also a space for
teachers to practice public speaking skills.
Teaching Materials and Support - ASB provides a packet of handouts,
relevant online resources, and suggested homework assignments to help
participants understand the topic more deeply. It also facilitates reflective
conversations among the participants so they can support each other in
implementing the new ideas that they learn about.
