14th BTIC Program - BRAZ
D
Dear BRAZ-TESOLer,
I can hardly express how happy we are to have you
here to spend the next few days with hundreds of
colleagues to share, learn, and celebrate English
Language Teaching in Brazil and the world.
We can say that 2014 is a year of change for BRAZ-
TESOL. You have probably noticed that our major
event is no longer called a National Convention
but an International Conference instead, a title we
believe better suits its current configuration and
purpose. One more aspect which is specific to this
edition of the conference is its date. As mentioned
before, the occurrence of the 2014 FIFA World
Cup™ in Brazil will certainly magnetize everyone’s
attention, therefore we believed the best decision – albeit bold – would be to hold our
own event in April/May for the first time in the history of BRAZ-TESOL.
This time around, the theme that binds the conference together is “Emerging Identities
in ELT”. Definitely a fortunate and sheltering concept in times of globalized ideas and
practices which redefine – even challenge – our beliefs towards what we do in our
everyday professional practice.
We are confident you will find a myriad of opportunities for reflection on these emerging
identities throughout the diversity of presentations in the schedule, so be sure to make the
most of the program. Apart from numerous talks and workshops by ELT professionals
working within Brazil and abroad, we will have varied plenaries by important speakers in
the field, we will run the first ever Open Space event in a BRAZ-TESOL conference, and
we will have two stimulating Signature events taking place. But don’t forget to put some
time aside to enjoy the company of new and long-time friends and to savor your visit to
beautiful João Pessoa.
And, once again, we have been able to count on the support of all our members and
partners. On a personal note, I must add that even though I’ve been with BRAZ-TESOL’s
leadership for over 15 years now, the incredible goodwill our association attracts from
the ELT community in the country and overseas never ceases to amaze me. Such
support was essential to make this special edition of the BRAZ-TESOL International
Conference one more remarkable reality.
I should close by saying that this is only possible because of you: our committed
members, our solid partners, our welcoming host institution, our dependable office staff,
our dedicated volunteers, our determined board members, our enthusiastic first-time
participants, our generous presenters, our considerate national and international guests;
because of each and every one of you who devote your time, effort, energy, joy, and true
belief in the prosperity of our association and the ELT profession.
Because of you, our conference is bound to be a success even before it starts.
Welcome to the 14th BRAZ-TESOL International Conference!
On behalf of the General Council,
Marcelo Barros
President

What is
braz-Tesol?
BRAZ-TESOL is a not-for-profit organization of teachers of English. It is an
affiliate of TESOL International, a professional association of Teachers of English
to Speakers of Other Languages, based in the U.S. and an associate of IATEFL
(International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language),
based in the UK. Both TESOL and ITAEFL represent teachers, researchers, and
materials developers throughout the world.
BRAZ-TESOL represents TESOL professionals working in both the private and
public sectors in Brazil. In addition, it publishes a quarterly newsletter for its
members, organizes Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and Regional Chapters. In
addition to organizing a biennial conference, throughout the year the association
promotes conferences, seminars and meetings to stimulate professional growth
as well as the improvement of ELT standards in Brazil.

PCI OVERALL AIM:
The question about technology integration in the language classroom is not if,
but how we should design learning experiences that are significant, engaging
and motivating for our students. In this full-afternoon Pre-Conference Institute,
BrazTESOL EduTech SIG, we will discuss, consider tech integration frameworks,
reflect, and share practical ideas that can be used in your next lesson plan.
Join us for a full afternoon of tech-infusion that will make a difference in your
everyday teaching.

hAND IN hAND:
SPEAkERS:
Thelma Marques
Eliane Zamboni
PCI OVERALL AIM:
Everyone speaks with an accent, no matter where they are from. Accents carry
our “identity card”: they tell people who we are. Due to globalization we now are
exposed to a wide range of accents. Furthermore, communication of non-native
speakers using English, the lingua franca, is more and more frequent and challenges
non-native speakers to understand and to be understood. This PCI invites you to
discuss these and other issues that can influence the learner in the process of
achieving an intelligible and competent English. It also shares practical suggestions
to be used in class with Brazilian learners.
Intercultural Language Education SIG

SPEAkERS:
Isabelita Peixoto - Linguistic Prejudice in ILE: the cases of English and Portuguese
Andrea Assenti del Rio - Multidisciplinary readings (and actings) in ILE: Theatre of
the Oppressed
PCI OVERALL AIM:
Intercultural language education embraces all aspects of teaching culture and
language as an integrated whole. Language education is inter-cultural when the
learners’ own culture and identity is fully engaged in an encounter with other cultures
and identities. These encounters can be physical or they can be virtual, as when
travellers with different language backgrounds meet up, here or there, or when they
interact online. Intercultural language education encourages learners to become
active explorers, both of their own culture and of other cultures. It involves making
the familiar strange, and the strange familiar. This session brings together language
educators with experience in South America (Argentina, Brazil ). They have a strong
track record in intercultural language education and in developing materials for the
classroom. One of them was involved in developing an Intercultural Resource Pack
specifically for Latin America; another one took part in a Master´s programme in
Globalisation and Critical Citizenship Education. They will share their experiences,
their enthusiasm and some of their practical classroom ideas at this special event,
which will launch the Braz-Tesol Intercultural Language Education SIG.

Young Learner SIG
ThE WISDOM OF ChILDhOOD
SPEAkER:
Lucy Crichton
PCI OVERALL AIM:
The chief aim of this PCI is to focus on childhood education and its cur)rent
challenges. Why do we have so many students in our classrooms with emotional
difficulties and learning problems? What are the roots of these questions and how
can we help our young students to develop into harmonious adults.
OBJECTIVES:
In order to achieve the overall aims, participants will go through the following stages:
1.
Identify the basic needs in childhood by looking at their physical, emotional and
spiritual needs.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Look at family structures and educational beliefs.
Discuss current and contemporary educational methods.
Look at the use of healthy images, stories and play as a therapeutic activity.
Talk about the essential role of the teacher in early education (0 - 2 years).
regional Chapters of
braz-Tesol
BRAZ-TESOL is one of the few Teacher Associations in the world that is truly
representative of members from all over the country. Although our main office is located
in São Paulo, more than half of members nationwide come from other states, where
the benefits of membership are consistently reinforced through regional chapter events,
seminars, webinars and link-sharing by BT Chapters for professional development of
local teachers of English.
It is quite likely that your local chapter needs your support and if there is no local or
regional chapter in your area it means there is an opportunity to start one. Why not ‘get
the ball rolling’ yourself? Contact the Board or the Advisory Council for support then call
a meeting of teachers from different institutions in your city/state.
The chapters have been active all year round in Belem, Brasília, Curitiba, Goiania,
Londrina, Manaus, Recife, Rio de Janeiro and Salvador.
8
Many have also adopted an innovative approach towards the organization of teacher
development events. The Brasília Chapter co-hosted the first ever Image Conference
in Brazil, alongside IATEFL’S Learning Technologies Special Interest Group (http://
theimageconference.org/previous-conferences/about-brasilia-2013/). The Rio de
Janeiro and Recife Chapters crowd-funded Luke Medding’s “Teaching Unplugged”
three-day course in both cities. The Curitiba chapter hosted a special two-day event last
year to celebrate its 15th anniversary.
There are regular updates on Chapter activity in the BRAZ-TESOL newsletter, so if you
would like to let members know about events and opportunities in your area, please send
a report to the newsletter editor at [email protected] Those of you involved in
running local chapters may also like to join our group on Facebook: BRAZ-TESOL Local
Chapter Committees.

Listen to Thrive - or the 10 vs. 2 times 5 principle.
The most inspiring, effective and successful teachers I’ve
ever met had one thing in common: They were good -
no, make that great - listeners. In this talk, I will try to
address a question that looks so simple and obvious on
the surface that it doesn’t get asked as often as it should:
14
What kind of listening skills do you need to develop in
order to thrive - rather than only survive - in ELT?

“No Listen the Ask”:
Emerging Englishes & Transnational Spaces
How do we present ourselves in today’s digital world?
Using examples from You Tube and other sources, this talk
shows how identities are constructed through repeated
performance and how people adopt pragmatic strategies
to engage with each other online. English’s role is crucial
in this as a dynamic, emergent and social phenomenon
and one that is increasingly under discussion.

Are you game? Gaming and gamification principles in
teaching and learning a second language
This plenary talk aims at discussing the concepts of
gaming and gamification and their potential benefits as
catalyst of the cognitive processes involved in second
language learning and teaching. Participants will be
familiarized with an array of gaming principles, which can
be adapted to the gamification of activities in their faceto-face language classes.

Study, Work, Life:
Developing transferable skills across domains
Despite predictions, English teachers have not been
entirely replaced by software! This session looks at what it
is that we bring to the educational process as people who
are effective in their professional, academic and social
lives. We consider the need in our English classrooms
to help students prepare for an unpredictable, rapidly
evolving future, with particular focus on developing
transferable skills that will allow them to meet future
challenges with flexibility, adaptability and confidence.

The teacher and response-ability
One thing teachers have to do in classrooms – virtually
all the time – is respond: to questions, silence, mistakes,
success and failure, etc. I would argue that the way in
which a teacher responds during a lesson is a defining
characteristic, and therefore worth some analysis and
reflection. This talk explores some of the aspects of a
teacher’s response-ability.

Getting older … and wiser?
The aim of this plenary is to make you think a little, make
you laugh a little, and leave you with some ideas to take
away and use both inside and outside the classroom. We
will experience stories, poems and anecdotes that relate
16
to different stages of life and provide interesting food for
thought for those of all ages.

Sacred gift or faithful servant?
Focus and creativity in the classroom
According to Albert Einstein, the intuitive mind is a sacred
gift, whereas the rational mind mind is a faithful servant.
So what then, (if you agree with him) does this mean
for the kinds of activities we ask students to do in the
language classroom?
Following on from my presentation at BRAZTESOL 2012,
I want to look again at the ‘force of focus’ and try to pin
down the kinds of learning opportunities which allow
students to focus in on the way language works whilst at
the same time encouraging them to use their intuition and
creativity to ‘go further’.

Brazil IELTS scores, hours of
English study and band-score gain
How well are Brazilian IELTS-takers faring in comparison
to their fellow BRIC peers? Which skills are they strongest
in? And which skills are weaker? How does the English
level of Brazilian students aspiring to study overseas
compare to that of students from the recently coined
‘’MINTs’’?

TRINITY COLLEGE LONDON
how can we help language learners
to express their identity?
The neutrality of lingua francas, such as English, can
give speakers the opportunity to use the language to
articulate their personal and national identity and build
their confidence through the expression of self. In this
presentation we will consider how we can help learners
to personalise their language and find their ‘voice’.
PAUL SELIGSON
RIChMOND
helping Brazilians to like their English Identity
Learning to speak EFL necessarily involves assuming a
new, vulnerable identity. Success depends on learning to
live with/like your ‘English self’.
Stop treating students as deficient ‘imitation nativos’.
Instead, adopt an affective, ‘Brazilian-friendly’ approach;
Portuguese- specific, culturally and linguistically-appropriate
topics/texts/tasks, feasible short-term goals, etc.
Tailor courses to celebrate their many collective strengths,
highlight common weaknesses, to improve/accelerate
learning, so learners thrive more quickly in English. How?
Come find out! Full of practical ideas.

Mentors, Myths, and Memories: The Dream Lives of
Teachers
The first stage of Teacher Development is to look
inwards. Our growth as professionals is rooted in
personal narrative, understanding our lives as teachers
and examining the different paths we might take. We need
to ask ourselves: What type of teacher am I? How did I
become this way? What type of teacher would I like to
be? What do I need to do to get there? Through the lens
of personal narrative, we will look at different ways of
developing – for example, through courses, mentoring,
and deep reading – and engage in some enjoyable
activities designed to explore our identities as teachers.

Emerging identities: The Learning Body
Identity is situated in the body as much as in the mind.
The separation between mind and body – a fundamental
‘truth’ in modern Western thought – is succumbing to
a view that thinking, and hence learning, is ‘embodied’,
i.e. that the mind extends beyond the grey matter of the
brain, and is realised, at least in part, through gesture,
movement, and physicality. What might this mean
for (second) language learning? In this talk I’ll review
developments in this exciting new field, and (very
tentatively) suggest some applications.

Rhythm & Connected Speech
The workshop aims at investigating some features
of connected speech and identifying their symbiotic
relationship with rhythm. Participants will experiment with
patterns of vowel reduction, blending, and elision, among
others. They will also experience rhythmic activities and
consider ways to help their students learn these aspects
of pronunciation.
Reading in the Classroom
For several reasons, reading has been left aside in
the EFL class. The workshop aims at analyzing this
phenomenon and eliciting what can be done in class to
change this scenario. Participants will share some tasks
and techniques to help get their students prepared for
reading English texts effectively.
Cultural Awareness
The workshop will quickly discuss the importance of
cultural awareness in everyday class and will then elicit
some common traits of American behavior regarding
body language, physical contact, social interactions, and
appropriate language that have to be taught to students
of English, in order to improve their communicative
competence.

Stories that help and heal
Many behaviour problems that crop up in our classrooms
can be addressed by using a therapeutic story. From
teasing, laziness, and dishonesty to separation anxiety
and bullying, this workshop will demonstrate how to tell
this type of story, and through simple, practical examples,
discuss what can be done to help.

The world it is a-changing:
implications for teachers and learners
In this session, we will:
• compare participants’ teaching contexts, and the ways
20
in which these are changing.
• look at the priorities for today’s learners.
• discuss these in relation to available resources.
• identify relevant methodology and content for our
present context(s).
• decide how we can make best use of the old and the
new to satisfy present and future realities.
WILLY CARDOSO
PILGRIMS
Critical Open Space
Is it the role of language teachers to address social issues
in the classroom?
By constituting identities, both personal and social,
language gives us the power to inform and transform
our lives. Our education system today, like never before,
puts a high premium on information. Unlike twenty years
ago, oddly enough, now we can even say there is a case
of ‘information overload’ in some contexts. What about
transformation? Is what we experience in the language
classroom today nurturing creative and ethical minds
who can cope with the changing world and contribute
positively to this change?
The possibility to engage in a pedagogy which negotiates
identities, critiques information, and strives for social
transformation can be empowering, liberating and
invigorating. But it can also be extremely challenging,
oppressing, and exhausting.

Communication built on solid foundations
Grammar and vocabulary are essential for communication
in a language. You can learn about skills and functions but
without the blueprint and building blocks of a language
(its grammar and lexis), you cannot express your ideas.
What do students really need to know about grammar and
vocabulary to become efficient communicators?

Critical open space
Is it the role of language teachers to address social issues in the classroom?
By constituting identities, both personal and social, language gives us the power to inform and
transform our lives. Our education system today, like never before, puts a high premium on
information. Unlike twenty years ago, oddly enough, now we can even say there is a case of
‘information overload’ in some contexts. What about transformation? Is what we experience
in the language classroom today nurturing creative and ethical minds who can cope with the
changing world and contribute positively to this change?
In this Open Space session we will discuss and collaboratively find our answers to this
question.

Developing communicative competence has been a goal since the 1960’s. Despite the
popularity of the term “communicative” in ELT, it seems that the structural aspect is still the
main focus. We will show the results of a study which analysed if teachers value/explore
competences other than the grammatical one.

The whole process of conceptualizing, planning,
organizing and actually implementing an
event like the 14th BRAZ-TESOL International
Conference is based on the joint effort of a
aCknoWledGMenTs
whole team who are committed and passionate
supporters of the BRAZ-TESOL mission.
These collaborators remain, on the whole, in the background and will have helped at different moments,
providing varying degrees of support. We thank everyone who has helped in any manner. However, it is
important to extend special thanks to some people without whom this event would not have come off
the ground.
BRAZ-TESOL is indebted to the elected National Executive Board: Marcelo Barros, whose leadership as
our President was fundamental in national and international spheres in order for us to successfully change
the date of the event; Valéria França, as Vice President and Academic Chair, who unwaveringly managed
to negotiate the presence of key guest speakers and sponsors and plan the details of the conference;
Virginia Garcia, 2nd Vice President and newsletter editor, who brought a more exciting and contemporary
look to our publication; Adriana Lima, our Secretary, who has worked alongside the Vice-President in the
contacting of speakers and who designed the highly effective advertising campaign run on social media;
Bianca Palumbo, our Treasurer, the lady with the money, without whom we wouldn’t have been able to
cost the event.
Huge thanks go to the Advisory Council, which has been active in all stages of the process. Graeme
Hodgson, who came up with the fantastic title of the conference and who has helped with proofreading;
Fernando Guarany, who has been a partner in thinking up ways of expanding our outreach as an
10
association and for the conference; Jeff Stranks who has helped in all aspects of conference organization,
providing invaluable advice to the Vice President; Henrick Oprea and Versuka Gallo who have organized
the Minders; Viviane Kirmeliene who runs our social media presence online and helped with proofreading
and, last but not least, Sara Walker, ex-President, who has been instrumental in guiding us as regards our
contacts and general procedures. Thanks also to Carla Arena who helped us with technological doubts.
And where would the Association be without our valuable and trusted office staff, Claudia Cavalcante
and Marlene Justino. Without you both, we would probably not have a fully functioning association or
conference.
We need to thank Sistema Escola Viva and more specifically Escola Internacional Cidade Viva for agreeing
to be our conference venue. Thank you Zé Marcelo and Shalomir Saunders for working alongside us and
always clearing up our doubts.
Our very special thanks to everyone from the different Chapters who donated their time to help with
proposal reading: Alberto Costa, Anderson Maia, Carla Arena, Cecilia Lemos, Eduardo Santos, Edmilson
Chagas, Marcelo de Cristo, Monica Freire and Vinícius Nobre. Thanks also to our APLI associates who
helped: Janaina Cardoso and Michele Schwertner and, of course, the Executive and Advisory Board
members.
Thank you to Carolina Simionato for the program booklet design and Camille Marcatto, at Marca Layouts
and Instalações, for the conference logistics.
Sincere thanks are also due to ALL our sponsors, and in particular to the major supporters of the event
mentioned here:
