Speak Up! Pronunciation Activities for Remote or In-Person Instruction

March 11, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm CST
|Recurring Events (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:30 pm on Friday, repeating until March 18, 2022

Free

Registration Deadline: FRI. 3/11/22 (Part 1); FRI. 3/18/22 (Part 2)

English pronunciation is a challenge for teachers and learners alike! In order for learners to be able to add the features of English pronunciation to their speaking toolbox, they need explicit instruction so that they can hear and produce the target sounds and rhythms.

In these two sessions, you will learn about techniques to teach pronunciation that will be helpful for learners from a variety of language backgrounds and ESOL levels, and multisensory activities that can be used during in-person or remote instruction that go far beyond “listen and repeat”. The training will also discuss the importance of focusing on intelligibility as opposed to accent reduction, and provide suggestions for incorporating the techniques and activities into existing curriculum rather than stand-alone classes. Participants do not need to attend both sessions.

In Part 1 (a 90-minute session on March 11th from 1:30-3:00pm), we will dive into ways to teach and practice the sounds of English, including minimal pairs, articulatory settings, final consonant production, and consonant clusters.

In Part 2 (a 90-minute session on March 18th from 1:30-3:00pm), we will go above and beyond the sounds to explore ways to teach and practice the rhythms of English, including word stress, thought groups, and intonation.

Come prepared to try a variety of activities with your teaching colleagues, and leave with ideas that you can implement immediately!
