Abstract: Planning is inherent to language teaching. We plan units, lessons, activities and projects, to mention but a few. In our zest to find creative activities and cater for our students’ needs, we run the risk of overlooking some crucial principles in education and ELT. How can we ensure that our planning does justice to the latest research and to the underlying principles in the curriculum? How can we plan having valued student outcomes in mind? This presentation aims at reflecting on these questions so that participants can find their own paths to their young students’ learning.
This activity is free of charge but online registration is essential

The winner of the free pass offered to our members to attend this year's FAAPI Conference organised by ASJPI was
María Carla Abbati.
Read her report on the event.
For the first time in many years, I was the lucky one to win the free ticket to the FAAPI Conference. At first, owing to my busy lifestyle, I doubted whether I would be able to attend. Then, as the excitement took hold, I invited a close friend to join me and off we went. This ticket was a springboard towards an incredibly enriching experience.
FAAPI 2016 was unlike any other before - it was one with a difference. It was the special 41st edition, since many dates coincided: 25 years of the first FAAPI in San Juan, 200 years of our Bicentenary as a nation and 400 years of Shakespeare´s death.
As the logo shows, the triangular figure consists of an arrangement of small triangles that interact in a variety of hues of colours, signifying collaboration and multidisciplinary work: “Growth through co-operation”. This image creates an arrow head which symbolizes the idea of growth, while resembling the mountainous landscape in San Juan.
I really consider that this logo represents what this 41st FAAPI edition was all about: a great variety of academically well-prepared plenaries and semi plenaries, concurrent sessions, commercial presentations and sponsored workshops.
Noteworthy among the excellent national and international speakers present at this event were: Silvana Richardson, Claudia Ferradas and Malena Solda, Luke Prodromou, Aziz Abu Sarah, Len Unsworth, Jair Félix, Lucy Crichton and Dave Alan.
Some of the presentations that affected me strongly were:
The array of venues, which were within a wide walking distance of each other, provided us with the opportunity to take in the fresh air as we strolled through “Parque de Mayo”. Most of the facilities have been built in the last few years, and have new and modern infrastructure with well-equipped conference rooms featuring state-of-the-art technology.
I would like to draw attention to the kindness and hospitality of the members of ASJPI (“Asociación San Juan de Profesores de Inglés”), who made the most of the everyday racing chain of lectures. They provided an ideal example of a collaborative team, an example that should be followed in the future. Also, behind them was the current Organising Committee, who were seen both on and off stage during the whole Conference, and who showed great commitment towards the organization of the event.
I would like to thank my dearest friend and colleague Jorgelina Arregui for having shared this enriching experience with me, the Rosario delegation for being so friendly and open to us and, of course, APrIR, which gave me the opportunity to attend this 41st FAAPI, which has once again allowed my passion for teaching to blossom.
