YOUR TEACHING STYLE - TEACHING QUIZZES

I'll be using this space to add and post teaching quizzes. Many out there meant to give a teacher insight into themselves and thus, better their teaching. "Know thyself" is an important thing to a good educator.

Teaching styles are important to know. We all have a tendency towards one kind of style and this effects the learning in the classroom and what happens. A good educator knows their style and in this awareness, adjusts the style to suit the learners or…

Why blog?

I am writing a short article to be published on a magazine for EFL teachers in Israel. It is about blogs. I thought I might write a few things that I intend to have published on that article, just to see if you, colleagues, think that I am on the right track.

I will just post here a few of the things that I have already prepared. The article (I have submitted a first draft which may be edited) is a bit longer.…

Great Teachers - What stuff are they made of?

Download Super Teacher.ppt Download America's Best Teacher.doc

I've always wondered what is the "je ne sais pas quoi' , that magical quality that great teachers have.

Hi!

THE POWER OF STORY

Whatever the subject, I believe that stories should play a vital role. We are hardwired to learn through stories and more importantly to "embed" within our subconscious mind, the lessons and learning of life, by way of story. Wisdom is a story.

I have used stories in the EFL classroom and especially funny stories (there are some good ones in my teaching folder, about 25 simple ones. ) I have also had a lot of success using folktales and they are especially effective…

Monkey Chat -my one online activity that was a real hit

It's funny how sometimes you spend hours creating an activity, sure that the students are going to really enjoy it and learn something too, only to find that you were wrong and the activity is a total flop. Then other times you pull something together quickly and it is a success, go figure!

A few years back I discovered www.PandoraBots.com a site which hosts AI chat bots that you can use in your websites. The chat bot itself on a web page is…

Use the Book!!! The tyranny of print!

I have always had a very cautious view about using a book to teach language. For many reasons which I'd like to elaborate on. I've had a few discussions recently about this, regarding new teachers and their need for a book. Most people advocate that a new teacher use a book -- or any teacher for that matter, use a book. I'm not so sure. I see the benefits and I myself as a beginning teacher enjoyed those. The structure, the ability to "seem" in control and perform as what…

Digital Stories

I teach my teachers a course on storytelling and part of it, I deal with Digital Story telling and especially getting their high school students to use their cameras, tech skills and tell their own stories. I have many examples on the video part of my site at www.ddd.batcave.net Stories are sssooooooo powerful and are in my opinion (and always will be) the nexus of teaching. Even science and biology are courses held together by this…
