Teacher Training




Iserlohn, 27.5.04/Dortmund, 13.5.04


The in-service teacher training courses I have held at the Institut für Lehrerfortbildung / Mülheim an der Ruhr focussed on ways of improving the teaching of English and French prose composition to German sixth-formers by means of procedural facilitation and computer-assisted instruction. I also presented some of the material to be published in Hannay/Gallagher/Mackenzie/Siepmann (forthcoming). 

During those courses I found that many teachers had little practice in writing skills and were largely uninformed about differences between German and English prose styles. With this in view John D. Gallagher and I decided to conduct an English writing workshop aimed at addressing some of the existing deficiencies. The course was first held in February 2002 and will be repeated in March 2003. (cf. the announcement in the relevant Kursheft of the Institut für Lehrerfortbildung.)
