Learning Designs

Started by Elise in Teaching and Methodology Mar 27, 2019. 0 Replies

I was wondering what you all thought of learning designs pertaining to English language teaching? What are the ways in which you design your lessons to achieve better learning in your students?Continue


I teach English Language Learners at a high school in Sacramento, CA.

I'm impressed with the work Dave (and others!) have done developing this site, and look forward to learning from EFL Classroom 2.0.

My "regular" blog is at

I really have appreciated "your story" and it is inspiring and shows how the best teachers in many ways, come from diverse and different backgrounds. This varied perspective really helps us as teachers. I "fell" into teaching after falling off a building and spending weeks in the hospital. But my farm background and construction side, really has made me a better teacher.

I'll be emailing you about podcasting shortly. We have a real good and professional podcastor member and I hope to get him, come Sept. to plan some podcasts with members discussing relevant educational EFL issues. Hope you'll be open to participating.

I've linked your Link blog site on our main page. Cheers,

Hi Larry, just visited your blog - what a wonderful resource! The reason I'm here is to tag you with the 8 random things meme tag - rules can be found here techteachr sorry for putting you on the spot like this, when we don't even know each other

Sorry about that, I hadn't finished posting these are the rules:
1.Post these rules before you give your facts
2.List 8 random facts about yourself
3.At the end of your post, choose (tag) 8 people and list their names, linking to them
4.Leave a comment on their blog, letting them know they’ve been tagged

I think this kind of activity could be a great icebreaker for participants in distance collaboration projects.

Here goes (I also cross-posted this on my own blog):

It's a fairly simple one -- list 8 random facts about yourself. I'll keep it short, since I think it's unlikely that many people are really that interested....

* My family has a neurotic Rescue dog named Bella.
* I was born without a sense of smell.
* My first car was an AMC Gremlin.
* I am a regular, though mediocre, basketball player.
* I went to a college (Goddard) that expelled Steve McQueen for driving his motorcycle in the dorms (that happened well before my arrival).
* Reese's Peanut Buttercups call out to me every time I see them in a store.
* I won the "Best Hustler" award at the 1970 Milwaukee Bucks summer basketball camp.
* Community organizing was my profession for nineteen years before I became a public school teacher four years ago.

Officially, I'm supposed to "tag" another eight people. However, I will only pick Christina Niven to get back at her for tagging me awhile back with another meme.
