PresentationHappy Reading! Using print and digital graded readers for sustainable and extensive reading
Extensive reading can provide students with lots of English input every day. In this presentation, I will introduce ways to implement sustainable extensive reading instruction. I will discuss how our school uses Biblio Battle and Book Exchanges to introduce stories through Graded Readers and how we use digital readers (Oxford Reading Club) to further enhance the enjoyment of reading. Get your students to enjoy English through the world of stories?

Rob works at Oxford University Press as an Educational Services Consultant and course coordinator of the Oxford Teachers' Academy. He has spent over 15 years in Japan teaching students of all ages as well as providing teacher support and workshops.
PresentationBlended learning for student and teacher support in an altered school environment
Students have returned to classes, but with social distancing measures in place home study is still an important part of the learning process. During this challenging time, teachers need to be able to assign tasks, track students’ progress and link self-study materials with classroom activities. In this workshop, we will look at examples from Metro, an exciting new English course for teenagers from Oxford University Press, to illustrate the benefits of blended learning and a flipped classroom approach. We will see how the printed textbook and online practice site keep learners engaged and active at school and at home, and make the most of valuable classroom time.

PresentationTools and tricks for web-based learning in the secondary classroom
This webinar will explore a new approach to literacy instruction at the secondary level in Japan combining phonics, storytelling and graded readers using digital materials and tools from Oxford which have been instrumental in delivering online teaching to my students this year. I will share tips and techniques on how you can use these tools to help your own students improve their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills while fostering a sense of curiosity and wonder in exploring the world around them.

PresentationDeveloping critical thinking with activities that support the five language skills
The ability to communicate and think critically are essential skills for success in modern society. In my webinar, I'll share English language activities that help learners to develop these lifelong skills. While introducing activities linked to the five language skills (Spoken Interaction, Spoken Production, Listening, Reading, and Writing) from Q: Skills for Success, I'll also highlight some "dos and don'ts" for remote lessons, which I discovered from teaching online classes during school closures.
