VenTESOL (Venezuela Teachers of English To Students of Other Languages) & AVEALMEC (Venezuela CALL Association) invite to:
ELT for Peace!
with Dr. Doris Molero (URBE)
When teaching another language, we teach about culture, food, music, people, the mechanics of the words and expressions, grammar, places.. and so on. Most of the time, we focus our lessons.. on the contents on the book, program, syllabus, or on what we were told to teach. How can we do all that and at the same time teach about what unites all the cultures of the world? Teaching peace becomes an important and meaningful way to show our students how they can use all that they are learning to communicate with the world and help on what we need the most: empathy, love, peace, cooperation, forgiveness, tolerance. Join this webinar and get to know some serious great little projects on how to use language learning and social media to build peace helping heal the world and ourselves. Have yourself and your students act big by starting small … Talk, Write, Call, Tweet, Post, Blog, Host, Design, Build, or Compose… All For Peace.
