50 tasks for teaching with only a blank piece of paper

I've always been a "constructivist", meaning that I believe especially with language, students "construct" knowledge and are active participants in the creation of what they know. They don't just swallow and file away ideas but learn through their own filter, culture, personal world as they construct from their own foundation of "knowing". 

My own basic approach for…

Top Power Point Games

powerpoint Still enjoying the series on games!   Power point games are something I REALLY know a thing or two about. I have made hundreds and also designed dozens of my own games from scratch.

5Ws in our lessons

Using the journalistic technique of the 5W questions is really effective for any listening / reading activity. Students can read or listen to  the news item or story and then write out the 5 questions that would cover the story. They can then quiz each other for comprehension instead of the teacher asking the questions.



Here is a clip from newsround (below). I give students the task of writing the 5 questions for one news item. So students only have to listen in detail to a… Continue

Teaching Writing - Helpful Websites....

Teaching writing isn't easy but despite being a "high order skill" it is an invaluable thing for any student who will work in an all English environment. Or for any second language speaker who'll communicate online (or by snail mail - people still do that, you know!).



Fortunately there are many online sites to help teachers instruct and for students to visit and get much needed feedback and practice.…

The "draw" of drawing

As a language teacher, I often use drawing as a way for students to "learn" language. Students love drawing and it is a very motivating tool that almost every student enjoys Even those students who have difficulty drawing can have fun given a teacher that shows their own inept drawing ability and keeps things "light".

 

I wrote "learn" because the real purpose of getting students drawing is not so they "learn" language but rather unconsciously acquire language.…
