Training with Elisabetta

Elisabetta Mohwinckel is an accredited Talk for Writing trainer for Italy and Switzerland. Her training is specifically for teachers in Italy and Switzerland working with EYs and KS1 children with English as a second language.

Elisabetta has trained with Pie Corbett and has used the method with second language teachers over recent years.

Telling a story in English has never been so easy as with using the TfW approach. Using TfW, children build up a bank of narrative patterns, characters and settings. They then internalize the flow and syntactical patterns of the story and its vocabulary through retelling.
This training will help you to guide children step-by-step through listening to a story, mouthing it, joining with single words and acting it out with gestures, props, costumes.

The course will also help you understand how to take your children from passive listeners to active talkers by providing practical ideas such as how to build a Story Box for your young learners to play and use independently.

Once participants have completed the course, they will receive a Talk for Writing certificate.
