When it comes to preparing our students for success in and beyond the classroom, teaching life skills such as active listening, empathy and teamwork play a vital role. In this workshop we’ll look at how learning life skills can help our students meet the demands of a changing world, and why the English class, with its emphasis on communication, is a good place to develop these 21st century skills. As we look at a range of classroom activities and lesson ideas, we’ll also see how life skills can boost our students’ English skills.
