The learning outcomes for the series of workshops suitable for both primary and post-primary teachers are based on the EPI method of teaching languages.

The aim of the workshops are to:

  • Showcase the creation of Sentence Builders for Irish language learning classes
  • Design a MARS EARS unit that compliments the Sentence Builder of any given unit
  • Highlight the variety of MARS EARS tasks and resources available that lend to the learning needs of the students

Is iad príomhchuspóirí na gceardlann siúd ná:

  • Eolas a chur ar fáil maidir leis an modh múinte EPI/MARS EARS nó 'The Conti Method' agus é curtha in áirithe don rang Gaeilge
  • Tabhairt faoi chur le chéile Sentence Builder do ranganna Gaeilge
  • Cur i bhfeidhm aonad MARS EARS a réitíonn le Sentence Builder an ábhair a léiriú
