Event Details: Preparing Students for Standardized Tests Like the TOEFL ®

Description: To succeed on standardized tests like the TOEFL, students need a good command of English, as well as a range of test-taking strategies. This hands-on workshop from the TESOL Certificate Program at Teachers College offers interactive approaches to test preparation. It also shows how test preparation can enhance students' overall language proficiency. The workshop is especially suited to those with no exposure to the Internet-based (iBT) TOEFL as test takers or test preparers. However, all are welcome.

Instructor: Michael Perrone is Director of the Northern Manhattan Improvement Corporation, a community-based literacy program, where he provides pedagogical support to 30 ESOL teachers. He has over 15 years of experience in the field of ESL and has taught in a variety of educational contexts including university-level classes, community-based organizations, and for-profit language institutes. Michael's research interests include student assessment, motivation, and language pedagogy. Michael received his Ed.D. in language assessment at Teachers College.

Fee: $150

    Beth Pollak is teaching at MS 328 (164th and Amsterdam near Washington Heights). She is the 6th and 7th grade science teacher for dual-language, bilingual, and ESL classes. She's really enjoying every second of teaching and working with the students, and it's a great challenge of course to differentiate the instruction for such a variety of levels and students.
