Tips For Teaching Languages.....





If I had to say my number one tip for teaching languages.....I couldn't. There is no No. 1, top dog, big cheese. Why?



Well, I think us teachers are all so different. What works with one, with another it bombs...... All depends is the defining language....



But if I were forced to state something, I'd probably first say -- "Make it necessary". There has to be a need and a teacher can go a long way in providing that fundamental emotive drive and desire.… Continue

Summer Stress

I have been very busy lately. The semester is wrapping up here and things are heating up. I have been running myself ragged preparing things for my new visa and for EPIK Adventure 08.



Between the fact that exams have concluded about two weeks ago and the hot weather (none of my schools are air conditioned, which apparently is not the norm here.) It is useless to try and teach the students. Even trying to… Continue

Can You Help Me Create Change?



I have been mulling over an idea in my head for a couple of months now. The above video inspired me to disclose it today. Above is the video log from the Uncultured Project. Uncultured was started by a college student from the US that was so moved by a speaker at his school talking about practical solutions to the issues that aggravate world poverty. Shortly after he moved to…

Teacher Leaders Network Is it true you can’t go back? I’m about to find out.



Six years ago, after a 26-year career as a classroom teacher, I opted to become a middle school literacy coach in the Los Angeles public school system. It was a stimulating… Continue

The "other" side of being a teacher.

This month I've had my head full of "spring" and in particular that spring 40 years ago in 1968 when students around the world became very "educated" and aware and sought to change things for the better. I didn't live through that spring and I don't condone everything that happened then BUT it was something I feel…

The chaos begins (NOT) - jumping into the deep end with my ESL students

Well we're taking the journey further into the world of Ning in my class.



Today we went through some different features of our class Ning and we jointly composed a response to a Forum topic and a Blog post (before I deleted it when I accidentally pressed backspace - Memo to self - teach students about saving drafts). The shared writing gave them a much needed foundation. It seemed to help them when they were in the computer lab.



As they're learning so many new multimedia… Continue

Global connections

Yesterday I showed the students my personal ning page with the class videos section. I've made the videos 'just for pals' to ensure their security so only a few people can see them. They were so excited when they saw the few comments there especially knowing that they were from teachers in other parts of the world. Very big smiles all around.



On a different note, we also watched some interviews the students had shot the previous week at our Showcase (… Continue

Inspiring & motivating - how it should be

I'm a newbie here.



I teach ESL (settlement English) to adult refugees and immigrants.



My class has been working this term to create short movies about 'How to catch public transport' for students at a lower level. It has been a steep learning curve for us all but oh so inspiring in so many ways. They have just gone for it. They're engaged, excited and teaching each other along the way. I'm stepping into the background - there to support if needed.



Now we' re… Continue

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.…

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…

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…
