50 ways to use music and song in the classroom

Without music, life would be a mistake.” – Fredrich Nietzsche

                                                      

We could also say "Without music, teaching would be a mistake!" Music just makes any teaching job, no matter how hard, enjoyable.

We also say, “Music makes the world go ‘round” but it also makes learning happen.  Please…

Featured Resource: Conversation Questions

Communicative Competence (CC) is the core of modern language learning theory. We learn language by actively, functionally using it and communicating our meaning so that others know what we mean. It is a very "deep" process which can be directed and guided through set conversation questions/prompts. 

We have …

fab-tree-hab-growth Teaching a language isn't as easy as it sounds - to do it well. Just showing up to a class and speaking (we call this modeling language) is only half the job. And that other half is an art form that one acquires over the years.

My own growth as a teacher has been on many levels: my beliefs as a teacher, my own classroom management skills, my knowledge of resources, my ability to design…

In Praise of Backpacking English Teachers



I think backpacking English teachers get a bad rap. Truly they do. And especially from the more "senior" and "accomplished/established" members of our profession - ELT (English Language Teaching).

A few weeks ago, I attended a plenary given by David Nunan. Now, I have nothing but great respect for Dr. Nunan. His… Continue

Technology. Amazing but nobody's happy!

This is Louis C.K. , a comedian expounding on how technology has changed everything but made nobody happier. Really funny and illuminating at the same time. I remember well those rotary dial phones and friends with zeros in their number!

Featured Resource: Quiz and Trivia Questions

I was a big trivia buff when growing up. Captain of our high school "Reach for the Top" team and proud of it. Avid Jeopardy watcher. All part of being curious about the world I guess. And I think most students are too and it is great to learn "something" while learning language.

To My Readers

I've been busy making updates to my book of selected writings. Stay tuned. 



It took a long time to edit but I wanted to do this because so much great content has gotten lost amid all the short posts, information tidbits, #1 posts etc.... It deserves the light of day, I think. But I'll let you be the final…
