English Proficiency Program

This seminar-workshop exposes teachers to effective English as a Second Language
(ESL) methods proven to foster language proficiency in the classroom.

The Gabay Guro English Proficiency Program is a 24-hour seminar-workshop designed to address the language teaching gap evidenced by poor student performance in national achievement tests. During the workshop, teacher-participants are exposed to English as a Second Language (ESL) methods which have been proven to be more effective than traditional language learning activities. The speaking and writing exercises are designed to help teachers improve their ability to become language models and to create classroom activities which balance language fluency with accuracy. An integrative assessment done towards the end of the program measures learning gains and identifies improvement areas.
