Highlight: English Language Teacher Workshop
Come to Fleetham Lodge and experience a continuing professional development class that will not only increase your passion for teaching but will also leave you inspired, refreshed, and restored!
Imagine yourself snuggled up in front of a crackling fireplace, cup of tea warming your palms (click here to experience some of this tea right now!), immersed in the beauty of Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights. Later, you join in on a lively discussion of technology in the classroom with passionate fellow teachers over a delicious meal prepared with love just for you by your hosts. Late that evening, you snuggle underneath the covers in your cosy private guest room and listen to the rain falling softly outside as you drift into a peaceful and refreshing sleep.
Sounds a little different from your typical continuing professional development classes and workshops doesn’t it? This is just a little taste of what you can expect when you come to an English language teacher professional development workshop here at Fleetham Lodge. We are dedicated to making this time not only one where you will increase in your teaching skills but also an enjoyable time as well. We cover many topics such as technology in the classroom, fun and innovative ways to teach grammar, presenting great literature to students and techniques to make it live for them, and many advanced topics. We like to keep our topics current, so they are, of course, always changing and advancing.
One of the greatest aspects of our workshops are the people that you will meet and get to bounce new ideas off of. And because you will all be staying at Fleetham Lodge together, you will really get to spend time with one another and exchange ideas in a cosy, intimate setting. Another highlight of our workshops is the special Bronte tour that we take our teachers on. We spend the day reading, then watch a movie, and then head out for the day to learn more about the Bronte sisters. We will visit the Bronte Museum and Howarth, and walk in the footsteps of this remarkable pair of siblings across the beautiful moors. It is truly a trip to invigorate you, body, mind, and soul.
So don’t miss out on this opportunity to get inspired, refreshed, and restored that we have for you!
