These are the tools I often use during the training sessions. I find that giving teachers pedagogical workshops as an effective intervention strategy. Teachers need to be given hands-on training in cooperative strategies for them to apply the strategies confidently in their English Language classrooms. At some point, when the school administrators feel that there is a need to share the strategies with all the teachers, I am always happy to help. However, some homework need to be done when it involves other than English Language subject, in which I study some of the contents of other subjects such as Science, Maths, Islamic Education etc.
