Join John Hughes for an online interactive talk on Wednesday 17th February at 4pm GMT.
Like many teachers, John Hughes loves writing his own materials. In fact, as soon as he started teaching thirty years ago, he tried writing his own quizzes, making worksheets for students, and creating classroom questionnaires. But, it also meant that he spent more time preparing lessons than teaching them and they didn’t always work! Looking back, he wishes he’d known the answers to questions such as: Why are black and white photos sometimes better than colour? How do I know if a worksheet will work or fail? Why don’t they understand the instructions? How do I check the level of my texts? And, isn’t there an online tool that will write this faster?
In this interactive talk, these are just some of the questions we’ll be answering as John shares ten (and possibly more) secrets of writing ELT materials, drawing upon ideas that are in ETpedia Materials Writing, to use in live online classes, face-to-face classes or a mix of the two (hybrid classes).
You can find out more about ETpedia Materials Writing, by John Hughes and Lindsay Clandfield, here.
Tickets cost £5, and for your £5 ticket, you will also receive a £10 discount on copies of ETpedia Materials Writing during the event, so you can get even more fantastic ideas for creating your own materials.
