Timothy Kryaninko: Propell® Workshop for the TOEFL iBT® Test
The Propell® workshop is a 1-day professional development program designed to help English-language teachers meet the challenges of teaching English to students. The workshop uses examples from the Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing sections of the TOEFL iBT® test. It provides instructional techniques and strategies for using the integrated-skills approach to teaching language and for preparing students for success.
Led by ETS-approved facilitators in an interactive, hands-on classroom setting, the Propell workshop opens the door to increased success in teaching students English as a second language. Teachers will receive a Propell workshop kit that will guide them through stimulating sessions on teaching techniques and activities and help them learn more about the benefits of the TOEFL iBT test. The workshop is also an opportunity to interact with peers and provide feedback to help us improve and develop assessments that meet their needs.
