Webinar 'Ready-to-use teaching resources on human trafficking and modern-day slavery'
- BC | TeachingEnglish Webinar -
"About the webinar:
This webinar will examine how and why we can address human trafficking and modern-day slavery in our lessons with dignity, respect, and with relevance.
The session will begin with a brief overview of slavery and human trafficking today, drawing upon academic anti-slavery research, and personal narratives of survivors.
We’ll then focus on The NO Project free downloadable teaching resources, which are specifically designed for learners B1+ and above. The lessons are for both online and in-class teaching and are geared towards upper secondary, young adult, and adult learners i.e.16+ years. All plans are based on real-life narratives and are approached with dignity and respect. The presentation will also feature the gentle step-by-step teachers' guide, powerful visuals and engaging artwork, original audio content, authentic videos, and theme-based lexical input.
To conclude we’ll examine how the student autonomous learning resources facilitate inspirational, collaborative projects beyond the class.
