CA successful teaching year usually entails transforming our classrooms into close-knit communities. Whether our students are meeting each other for the first time or learning a new language, we can help them begin to build relationships with their peers through icebreaker activities. With teenagers, it is a great way to prevent bullying and cliques. These activities also help teachers manage classroom behavior. In this presentation, Shelly Terrell will show you engaging icebreakers for teens and adults that would be helpful in both mainstream and ESL/ELL classrooms
