Minifiction or the short short story in the classroom

 

 Have you ever felt the need to move beyond the one-off news article reading lessons?

 

Have you tried to squeeze readers – either original stories written for learners or adaptations of well-known books – in your class syllabus?

Setting positive limits in the classroom

This is the first in a series of three blogs I’m planning to write about setting positive limits in the classroom.

 

How many times have you found yourself in a situation where you didn’t have the courage to say “no” to the students that you love?

Imprinting on our learners 3 (and on teacher motivation to achieve it)

Setting an example is not the main means of influencing others, it’s the only means” Albert Einstein.

 

Now, how can we feel happy, satisfied and committed to our teaching and learners? They say, a teacher who’s motivated is capable of inspiring their students.Great, I agree, so how can we motivate ourselves to give our best?

Imprinting on our learners (Part 2)

This is the second in a series of three blogs about teacher-student motivation I’ve started to write.

 

I wrote my first blog about this topic having an inspiration from a video about animal imprinting. In that video a newborn duckling started following a puppy upon coming out of its egg. Apparently, ducklings follow the first moving object they see as soon as they hatch.

Disruptive behaviour in adult classes. Part 3.

Last year I was teaching a group of “junior professionals” and I was really enjoying the ride. The participants were highly motivated, so they loved coming to class. Most of them were cooperative and easy-going. However, there was one student (A) who relished contradicting absolutely everybody.

Disruptive behaviour in adult classes 2

This is the second in a series of three blogs I’m planning to write about what to do when our adult students misbehave in class. The idea is to share your views on these real experiences and what could be done in future similar scenarios.

A few years ago in my in-company classes, my class management skills were really put to the test.

Disruptive behaviour in adult classes

What should we do when adult students “misbehave” in class? I have all sorts of examples. However, I’m going to comment on a few of them and see if we can share ideas. This is the first in a series of three blogs I’m planning to write about.

Rapport as a primary element to teaching

I have already written the first part of a series I'm intending to write about my experience with Franco-African children, which proved that teaching in the target language is possible. Neither these children nor me had any knowledge of our respective mother tongues but we made it.
