Повик за наставниците и професорите по англиски јазик од државните основни и средни училишта во РС Македонија

Приклучете се во Македонската менторска мрежа (МММ) и развивајте се како училишен ментор!

Што е Македонската менторска мрежа (МММ)? - МММ е неформално име за група од 10-ина училишни ментори, т.е. наставници по англиски јазик од основното или од средното образование. Тие се обучени да работат со студенти од наставната насока на Катедрата за англиски јазик и книжевност при Филолошкиот факултет „Блаже Конески“ во Скопје, во смисла на тоа да им помогнат на студентите да ги направат првите чекори во наставата во училиште и да почнат да се развиваат како наставници. Некои од менторите во своите училишта активно менторираат колеги-почетници. Некои и формално ја имаат титулата наставник-ментор.

За каков проект се работи? - Идејата е МММ формално да прерасне во посебна група (Special Interest Group) во рамки на Асоцијацијата на наставници по англиски јазик на РС Македонија ЕЛТАМ МК. Оваа група е замислена како форум за професионален развој на менторите преку размена на локална стручност и развој на соодветни менторски вештини. На овој начин би се дал друштвен карактер на менторирањето како возбудлива форма на професионален развој за наставниците. Групата би служела и како моќен избор за мотивација за наставниците и за унапредување на професијата. За оваа цел, ЕЛТАМ МК доби мал грант за 2024 година од британскиот фонд Хорнби: https://www.hornby-trust.org.uk/ 

Од што се состои проектот? - Во рамки на проектот, предвидени се четири средби на групата МММ во 2024 година со времетраење од 4-5 часа, и тоа еднаш на два месеци: во февруари, април, јуни и август (термините ќе бидат договорени со групата). Средбите ќе ги води Елена Ончевска Агер и нивната намена е наставниците да дознаат за современите пристапи во менторирањето и да ги развиваат своите менторски вештини. Помеѓу средбите, наставниците ќе продолжат да менторираат (студенти и/или колеги), а секоја идна средби ќе служи за размена на менторските искуства и (до)развивање на менторските вештини на наставниците. На последната средба учесниците ќе презентираат аспекти од нивните менторски искуства на проектот и ќе бидат поканети да придонесат кон печатена проектна публикација, со резимеа од нивните презентации.

Кој сѐ може да се пријави за учество во проектот?

Сите наставници по англиски јазик од државните основни и средни училишта во РС Македонија со минимум наставно искуство од 2 години.

Што добивате од учеството во проектот?

Индивидуално годишно членство во ЕЛТАММК за 2024 година

Покриени патни трошоци за присуство на средбите

Оброк и пијалаци на средбите

Примероци од проектната публикација

Потврда за учество во проект

Професионален развој

Teaching English to Young Learners: How Theory can Inform Pedagogical Choices

This free webinar will focus on the theory of how children learn a second language and how we as teachers can apply this knowledge to inform our pedagogical choices and create developmentally appropriate activities for young learners. The age factor is especially determinative when pedagogical decisions about presentation and practice of grammar and lexis need to be made, so in the second part of the webinar we will co-explore and co-create effective and engaging activities optimal for incidental learning.

PRELIM 3 Project

Dear teachers,

ELTAM MK has partnered with Inlingua Cheltenham, a UK institute, in PRELIM 3 Project which is a partnership between the British Council, English UK and IATEFL, and managed by the Norwich Institute for Language Education (NILE).

The focus of PRELIM 3 project is development and dissemination of teacher support resources, designed specifically for the classrooms in Republic of N. Macedonia (especially state schools). We believe that PRELIM 3 project products will be extremely beneficial for teachers and students in our country in the current situation when teaching resources (and particularly textbooks in the state schools) are scarce.

Below is an initial survey in which you can answer questions that would describe your teaching context, your needs and your interest to participate in this project by piloting the resources in your classroom. We strongly recommend that you take part in this survey as it may be of great benefit for you and your students.
