NFB - the best of "Canada" and the world in video!

NFB

I love the National Film Board of Canada and I've previously highlighted their fine videos and especially animations - for use in the classroom (or just enjoyment!). We have many classics like George and Rosemary, The Big Snit and Paddle to the Sea, in our videos.



The videos stream well and offer a wealth of authentic material and animations for use in the… Continue

Next semester, I'm teaching a course on Culture and language and will have my students make their own websites as part of their course requirements. You could also make a website for your own students or better yet, get them to make their own. Also, useful as a blogging site for your students who can easily share with each other…

More on "Killing Creativity"

The video "Every Student Counts", above in our videos, is simple and powerful. It speaks to us educators in a number of ways. The number of ways we should allow for more creativity in our classrooms - not just in language but in those most basic things we teach in the hidden curriculum - being human.



I will list my own practical ways teachers can be a lot more…

Every book has it's cover - every lesson needs a hook!

Yes, every book does have its cover and for a reason. The cover is the most important part of the book. Why? Well not because it tells the story or has "content" or "stuff". Rather, because it fires us up, it gets us motivated, it stirs our soul. It creates anticipation - that potent elexir that all students (and teachers) need to drink.



Our lessons are similar. We need a HOOK! Something to create energy and excitement about our time together. And I don't just mean chit-chat… Continue

Suggestions - The Tao of Teaching "journal"

Over the last year, I've compiled this ebook - The Tao of Teaching. It sprung up through a forum conversation and just grew and grew.



Presently, I'm editing it and will make it into a reflective journal, using the passages as a prompt, along with a nice quote about learning/teaching/education for reflective writing. A journal professors/teachers can use with pre or inservice teachers in training.



Do you have any suggestions for this? I've long been a great advocate of… Continue

Number One ** Not your ordinary endless list - just what's number 1. Just the BEST.





Wall Wisher





Wallwisher is a place where students can go and put up "post it notes" about a topic. I can think of many ways to use Wallwisher with students but none better than getting students to reply about what they want to learn in the course or what they liked best about a course.… Continue

Being a "subversive" teacher.

Postman and Weingartner in Teaching as a subversive activity talk of subversion being even a tiny act, even as tiny an act as thinking about who you are as a teacher. Subversion begins there, in that kernel of self truth.



They asked teachers,



Why do you teach?



I can control people.

I can tyrannize people.… Continue

Best Soccer Documentaries - Watch Now!

This is a truly inspiring soccer documentary, the best of the best. It tells the story of how amputees, former child soldiers in Liberia, came together and through soccer, found some healing. Told in a slow voice over, it is really easy to follow and offers a world of inspiration for anyone - especially during the World Cup season.
