AVLYST: Gyldendal's English seminar
Dear English teacher!
Join one of our seminars for a thorough presentation on how our new textbooks E1 and SKILLS, along with their digital resources, can help you meet the new requirements in Fagfornyelsen.
Moreover, Tove Bjørgaas (NRK) will fly in directly from the US with the very latest on American politics. She poses the question: Is The American democracy in a crisies? If so, what does it mean for you and me? Martine Johansen will also give us five reasons to hold poetry slams in the classroom, and teach us how to go about it.
Everyone attending will receive a review copy of each book. The seminar is free of charge and will include lunch and snacks.
