Cambridge Day 2016

Some of the most renowned experts sharing their experiences, studies, theories and applications with ELT professionals from all over Brazil - this is the Cambridge Day. In more than 15 editions, in addition to the educational and pedagogical nature of the event, we also encourage social contribution to all partners and participants by exchanging registration for food donation.

And with the same excellence and quality of the Cambridge University Press publications, Cambridge Day 2016 will be a true experience of knowledge and learning. Are you ready for this experience?


Positive Education

The concept of positive education seeks higher academic achievement, alongside the development of well-being. This places an emphasis on the whole child with a focus on social, emotional and psychological skills. Research demonstrates, that when qualities such as curiosity, resilience, a growth mindset, perseverance and relationship skills are developed in pupils, there is an increase in motivation and they are more successful not just in school but in wider society. In this presentation, participants will be introduced to a model that brings these ideas together and can be incorporated into the life and work of the classroom.

Learner labels: What are they for? 

There is an increasing tendency to categorize learners, but these labels are rarely neutral and can take on lives of their own, independent of our learners’ actual opportunities to acquire language. This talk explores alternative ways of understanding learner identities, following a narrative rather than a paradigmatic approach.


Ben Goldstein

Raising young Learner´s motivation to improve student involvement in their Learning

One of the issues teachers in Brazil face in Primary schools is classroom management. To 'grab' the students’ attention and foster a love of learning are both challenging tasks. This session will cover some practical ideas how to tackle the issue based on content from the new Primary English course - Guess What!. Teachers will also get a glimpse of how and why Guess What! was developed, and what motivated the writing of the material.

She has conducted educational workshops throughout Asia, The United States, Central and South America, and Turkey. Lesley hopes that Guess What! will help students build social skills and obtain information that will benefit them in their futures. She earned her Masters in Teaching from The School for International Training in Vermont.
