Job shadowing at BEŞIKTAŞ ATATURK ANADOLU HIGH SCHOOL – Rob Dawson
I wanted to get new ideas how to improve the teaching of English and make it more motivating for students at Politechnikum. I was most interested in differentiating in English groups and have learnt several methods how to assign individual tasks to different students.
Moreover, I wanted to discover the Best Buddies program of the school for helping the inclusion of students with disabilities. We have a similar program at Politechnikum when mainstream students volunteer for helping students with disabilities and some new elements taken from the Turkish school can be included in that.
Finally, we also discussed future ways of collaboration in international projects with the Turkish colleagues.
Venue: Istanbul, Turkey
