Language Learning

The PDST Language Teams have also partnered with Education Support Centres Ireland (ESCI) to create a series of webinars on various aspects of Language Learning.  These webinars are available below.

 

Supporting Motivation in Literacy

How can children be motivated as listeners, speakers, readers and writers across languages? This webinar will highlight practical ideas to help foster an environment that is engaging for all children. We will explore strategies to encourage social interactions, facilitate meaningful choice and use a range of texts to support motivation. A range of useful resources will also be highlighted which can support engaging learning experiences in your learning environment.

Spelling and Word Study Webinar

In this Spelling and Word Study Webinar we will explore the key components of Spelling and some recommended approaches to teaching Spelling. We look at the integrated nature of Spelling with regard to Oral Language, Reading and Writing. In line with the Primary Language Curriculum 2019, playful and engaging learning experiences which may be useful when supporting children will be discussed. Is féidir na straitéisí seo ar fad a úsáid i litriúchán na Gaeilge agus pléifear é seo freisin. Finally, we will address the area of assessment and differentiation in Spelling instruction.

Ag smaoineamh mar scríbhneoirí 

Sa cheardlann ghréasáin seo beidh plé á dhéanamh againn ar cad iad na toscaí inspreagtha agus rogha a chuirimid ar fáil do dhaltaí. Déanfar forbairt ar sin leis an saorscríbhneoireacht agus anuas air sin, ar na seánraí scríbhneoireachta a mhúineadh. Déanfar iniúchadh ar aistriú scileanna agus ar conas cruinneas a chur chun cinn i slí páiste-lárnach. Tagrófar don aiseolas agus aischothú, maraon leis an measúnú mar chuid den cheardlann chomh maith.
