Side by Side: Competition & Workshop for teachers

In 2018 the MLTAWA will again run the Side by Side Competition (inaugurated in 2017 as part of the Languages in the Mainstream project). The competition involves two students of a similar year level sitting or standing side by side and holding a conversation by asking and answering questions about any topic using familiar language that has recently been explored in class. Find out more about the competition on the Side by Side page.

During April we will be running 2 hour workshops for teachers who want to know more about:

  • incorporating Side by Side into their day-to-day teaching
  • understanding the competition and submission requirements
  • effective oral communication tasks that link to the WA Curriculum
