As our materials have been scattered over several different sites from the past three years, we decided it was time to try to gather them all together in one place. You can now find everything at our new site Ask the Fellows. (However, this site will remain as it is.)
At the start of 2013 we have a new fellow joining us at IPGKDRI. Dr Linda Goodhew is a British lady with an American husband and a son. Her specialization in in Literature.
It's almost the holidays, the exams are almost over and most teacher trainees are straining at the leash to get home. However the students in the UKM class, in a special program training to be High School Teachers, are marching to the beat of a different drum, and their course has some weeks to go yet. To help them meet their course requirements, we ran a Drama Workshop for them including fun activities and strategies to help in teaching drama.
The module for the workshop can be found on the Workshops and courses - drama workshop page (click on the link).
The PowerPoint for the Poetry continuation of the Theatrical Storytelling for PISMPs is uploaded here.
We have just finished a special 2-day workshop course for the Islamic and Moral Education Department to help them improve their English. The materials are all available here.

The manuals and PowerPoint files have been uploaded for the second session of "Theatrical Storytelling". This session covers using puppets in the classroom, and activities to guide and encourage children as they develop their own storytelling and authoring skills. It can be found on the page "WORKSHOPS and COURSES - Storytelling - Theatrical Storytelling".
Similar to the first Storytelling course, slightly different layout (for a different group of students). THere is a facilitator's manual and participant's notes It can be found under "Workshops and Courses - Storytelling Course - Theatrical Storytelling".

This is not the first course I have run on stress and intonation here at IPGKDRI. This 2-hour session was for PISMP students in their second semester, and there were 132 of them in a lecture hall - not conducive to lively engaging teaching. However a very good time was had by all, and the materials are available under Workshops and Courses - Stress and Intonation in English
