TESOL Convention 2017: March 21st to 24th in Seattle

TESOL approacheth again! We are super excited that it will be in Seattle this year, just down the road from the Pike Place Market. Hello tasty seafood! Of course, we are looking forward to the conference as well.

This year we are taking an exciting (to us at least) new (to everyone) approach to our booth. We will also be giving out free copies of our new game, Jetstream and Turbulence, so be sure to check us out. We also hope you will join us for one or both of our workshops (if you respond to bribery, let us tell you that you will get a free book if you come).

Title: Take your students to TASK: the Key to Success!

Date: Wednesday, March 22, 2017

Time: 11:30 AM – 12:15 PM

Location: 615

In this session we will examine how carefully designed activities in The Transferable Academic Skills Kit give students the skills that they lack but sorely need – such as critical thinking, presenting, researching and referencing – to succeed not only in their post-secondary studies but in their future careers as well.

Title: Students and Learning: the Whole Experience

Date: Friday, March 24, 2017

Time: 9:30 AM – 10:15 AM

Location: 614

Do you think your students would be better off if they were fully engaged in class, learned really useful and natural language, gained cultural awareness and became more fluent speakers? Find out why it is not as tall an order as it sounds: join us in exploring Jetstream.
