1.  Just share some links to my older posts with great suggestions for using authentic materials

2. Discuss the implications surrounding the decisions to "go authentic" or not.  Suggest that there is now a much greater "grey" area between these two types of…

Featured Resource: Words

The amazing video WORDS is one of the most used resources on the community.  The video by Radio Labs is captivating and perfect for language instruction. It teaches students the meta skill of "language awareness", something very important for all language learners (and part of the realm of "noticing" that allows learners to become self - directed learners). 

 

The video has sets of…

Nosirree. There are great authentic materials everywhere which we can harness, control and use for presenting great classroom material, all…

On Praxis

Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one's thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.

- Johanne Wolfgang von Goethe

How do we take our teaching to the next step? From mere classroom activity and into the wide, open world?

The world is changing so fast, we don't even know for what world we are preparing our students who will graduate many years away. Isn't it…

Going To Pieces

Most enthusiastic language teachers "Go To Pieces", meaning they literally use material that is in pieces and compels students to practice and communicate. At its heart, "pieces" is a way of teaching that puts communication at the core of language teaching and learning.



Think about it. "Pieces" as an approach or frame, stretches over a wide swath of materials, methods…

Using Video - The Coming Revolution

voicerecognition My work over the years has brought me into thinking heavily about the role of video in language instruction. Even more so now with my work with EnglishCentral. I'm a big fan and have been from the get go. I saw its power as a university T.A. - tramping around the campus showing heavy "reels" of film to mesmerized… Continue

I made this "street scene" video for the One Day in the World project, held on 10.10.10. An effort to collect video and create a picture of the world on that day.  It was a beautiful day in Vancouver and as I sat on Robson St. having a beer and listening to Yes, Nice play across the street - I put my FLIP camera up and just recorded people as they came and went. Note how the…
