Teacher Training Workshops and Lectures: Puppetry for the ESL Classroom

On 4th September 2014, Kay Yasugi visited Sydney University to speak with the Third Year Primary Education students about using puppetry with ESL (English as a Second Language) students. She ran the puppetry lecture with Kate Harris, who is a primary school teacher and tutor at Sydney University. The session included a wide range of puppets suitable for various ages and needs; instructions on simple puppet making and operating; and practical ideas for using puppetry in daily teaching. Kay ran a similar workshop for Primary Education students at the University of Technology Kuring-gai on 24th March 2015. Puppetry is accessible to all ages across the primary years and beyond, as well as uniquely engaging for students with Special Needs or Non-English Speaking Backgrounds. It is a powerful tool for communication and fostering literacy in the modern classroom to make learning fun, meaningful and dynamic!
