- (JUNE - JULY 2016)
I have designed and managed a comprehensive programme with detailed lesson plans and exciting projects for a 1 month summer school. The children will learn about European History, Geography of the World, Drama (in particular, Shakespeare) and Art. I will be doing workshops Monday - Thursday for 3 hours, with the central theme of production leading through the 4 weeks. At our Gala Show the children will present their version of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, with the younger class presenting Peter Pan. In our Art classes, children will learn to make costumes, props, script-writing (with assistance) and we will produce a behind-the-scenes documentary to follow their progress and give to the parents at the end.

Circletime Studios, Hanoi, Tay Ho — English & Art Teacher
I teach Project Based Learning (Art/Drama/Creative Writing) to 2-6 year-olds and 8-12 year-olds. This means running creative workshops to teach English Language naturally in an enjoyable way. Workshops I have run so far span from 'Design Your Own Alien' - looking at The Solar System, possible life on Mars and the conditions of our neighbour planets. Another example is 'Superheroes vs. Villains' looking at Manga, Anime and American Marvel/DC, I ask the children to compare and contrast using adjectives, their abilities and disadvantages as characters. At the end, with both workshop examples, the students design - in a team or in pairs - the ideal superhero/villain or an alien depending on the planet and the properties. It works surprisingly well and they learn very interesting and usable vocabulary.
