Cultural Conflict and Understanding

One of the things any ESL / EFL / ESOL teacher cannot avoid is "culture". We deal on this playing field, a classroom/school where cultures meet and collide, even if only our own and the native culture. So it is imperative that we teachers have a sensitive, refined understanding of how culture works and how when… Continue

EPIK Justino Lives!

Still around, just been lurking as of late. For the last couple of months I haven't refused a night class or English Camp that has come my way. Signed a new contract with EPIK for a third year. This time around I will be only working at one middle school.



I have a speaking engagement at a university in Daegu next week where I will be sharing my lessons with about 100 teachers. I have never spoken in front of that many Koreans before. The fact that I do not like speaking in public… Continue

Juicy Geography

I occasionally read Noel Jenkins blog, Digital Geography and came across this wonderful interactive graphic he has created of the resources he uses as a geography teacher- web2.0 Toolkit.



Take a look at the image- each of those branches is a link to a tool or resource. Such a cool way to organize the info! He used a… Continue

Teaching Recipes - Got one?

teaching recipes



I've long been a fan of very simple teaching ideas - the basic core of all good teaching. My Lessons in a Can are part of that. Now however, we've got a new Web 2.0 resource which you can be a part of - Teaching Recipes.



The idea I came up with is to have a very basic site where teachers can share their lesson ideas. Just small notes to help other new or newer or just wanting to be re"newed" teachers. A… Continue

Must be because I had the flu for Christmas...

I was ruminating the other day on the first songs I experienced socially in my early adolescence, first boy/girl parties, that kind of thing. Well, it made me laugh -Lola, Take a Walk on the Wild Side, Come Together, and that all time anthem of outdoor festivities your parents wouldn't approve of, Love the One You're With :D



Well, one thing led to another and I came across these demo tapes made by Crosby, Stills, Nash and a little Young, circa '69 and '70. Stills can sing.. I… Continue

Manipulating VS Using language

Recently, I came across two lesson activity ideas online. On the surface both seem like good activities however one I don't think really "passes muster" for reasons I will explain. They contrasted nicely with each other and highlight the difference I see between USING and MANIPULATING language.

First the activities.



MANIPULATING Language
: Cut up letters of the alphabet and put into an envelope. Maybe 5 sets of the alphabet. In pairs or small groups,… Continue

Text to speech using Ultranormal: some examples from a writing class in Japan



This semester I have been teaching a writing class. One of the tasks was a movie review. Many of the reviews were excellent. Some were reviews of Japanese movies that I've not seen, but want to see now. I wanted to post some on my blog, along with some other examples of the excellent writing students in this class have been doing. Through… Continue

Games

Games can be learning objects.

Students can play educational games, so they practice what they study. They can also think, investigate, etc.

My students create their own online games to practice vocabulary and grammar. These games are easy to make and play but they learn contents and have fun. Games are a learning object for them. They work in pairs and change games with others.

I've used four useful tools this school year. I have prepared this presentation to introduce them and… Continue
