Teaching online ( do not panic)

Now, four years later me looks back again and say ‘ well, I made the fairytale come true, but is it really?’

My name is Fatima Taha, and I have been teaching for 12 years (two of which are online).

Who would have thought that online teaching, which was heavily criticized as a less effective way to deliver a lesson owing to the physical distancing and the lack of eye to eye contact, as argued by some, would become the first option for many fellow teachers?

The creativity I regretted!

This post is a reflection on a previous experience of assessing a project that was relying heavily on creativity.

It was in celebration of the international women's day that we at Al Azhar English Training Center started a poster competition to celebrate it. The competition was to create a poster around a female role model who had an impact on society, which was two weeks before the 8th of March and it was open for all levels.

"Extensive Reading" a gate to promoting critical thinking

 

Critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication are the ( 4C) first idea that comes to mind when talking about 21 century skills. There are various means of integrating these skills into the classroomز

Today, I am sharing my experiment with the use of "Extensive Reading" (ER) as one of the methods to integrate 21 century skills into our ESL/EFL classrooms. I will first share the Methdology then my experiment with this methodology and a guide of how to apply this Methdology to integrate the 21 century skills into your classroom

"Methodology based" Vs, "go with the flow" teacher

" so how can I plan this lesson using the TBL approach" Said Ms.Y
" easy, pre-task, task, report, analyze and maybe add a practice at the end just to test the students" Said me
"God, I never know the name of the approach I am using.I just teach the what and how I see right"said Ms.Z


That conversation took place yesterday where I and other 30 qualified teachers holding the Cambridge TKT 2014.
