Whether one is a teacher of many years’ experience or a new teacher making an entrance into the teaching profession, support and motivation to be exceptional in the classroom is always needed.
S.M.I.L.E.’s Skills Training Workshops address various topics. The ‘Fun with Literature’ Workshop assists teachers to master the complicated literary techniques found in poetry and Shakespeare, Wilde, Fugard and other writers. The ‘Teach Like a Champion’ Workshops reinforce the critical role lesson planning and key classroom techniques play in the teaching and learning process. Essay Writing, Comprehension Skills and Project-Based Teaching Workshops also form part of S.M.I.L.E.’s library of Workshops.
Curriculum Advisors from Districts across all Provinces frequently request that S.M.I.L.E. conducts these Workshops to reinforce skills and support teachers on an ongoing basis.
