Empowering English Teachers: Essay Writing Workshop Success

Amman, Jordan - August 16, 2023 - Our dedicated English Network teachers recently took part in an enriching Essay Writing Workshop held in Thiban and Al-Ramtha Directorates, as a vibrant component of our comprehensive English Program.

During this engaging workshop, our teachers explored effective teaching strategies designed to improve their students' writing skills. They explored interactive and structured techniques that empower young minds to skillfully craft compelling arguments, presenting, and defending their opinion with confidence and based on evidence.

These programs are implemented with the support of the Canadian government, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and the University of Jordan.
