For our second post on mediation we spoke to Ángel Briones, a teacher at EOI Embajadores in Madrid. Over the past year Ángel has been writing materials to both teach and assess his students around mediation. He is currently working for Pearson to design extension mediation activities to accompany our new general adult course book, Roadmap. Here’s what he had to tell us about some of the things that need to be taken into account when writing mediation tasks.
Question: Angel, you have been involved in writing teaching and assessment activities around mediation for your students. What are the biggest challenges in your view?
