Nik's QuickShout: Which ELT blogs do you read?

I'm carrying out some quick research to find out which ELT blogs teachers are reading these days. Many of the ones I used to consult seem to have died and I'm interested to see who is still blogging and if there is a new generation of ELT bloggers emerging. Please share links and vote for your favourite ELT specific blogs.

Ceepi - Les 5 premières minutes

Il a été élaboré à partir d'une pratique en SEGPA de collège (Section d'Enseignement Général et Professionnel Adapté). Utilisation privée, merci. Les cinq premières minutes de classe ont un intérêt particulier même si ce démarrage n'augure pas, en lui-même, de la qualité de ce qui va suivre. L'objet de ce travail n'est pas d'analyser tous ces éléments. Mais ces cinq premières minutes, quand elles ont été bâclées, quand des éléments simples n'ont pas été pris en compte, ces cinq premières minutes peuvent également barrer irrémédiablement la possibilité de travailler dans des conditions convenables.

The Big List of Class Discussion Strategies. Listen to this article as a podcast episode: Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 38:22 — 53.1MB) Subscribe: iTunes | Android | When I worked with student teachers on developing effective lesson plans, one thing I always asked them to revise was the phrase “We will discuss.”

The Big List of Class Discussion Strategies

We will discuss the video. We will discuss the story. We will discuss our results. Every time I saw it in a lesson plan, I would add a note: “What format will you use? The problem wasn’t them; in most of the classrooms where they’d sat as students, that’s exactly what a class discussion looked like. So here they are: 15 formats for structuring a class discussion to make it more engaging, more organized, more equitable, and more academically challenging. I’ve separated the strategies into three groups. Enjoy! Gallery Walk > a.k.a. Basic Structure: Stations or posters are set up around the classroom, on the walls or on tables.

There appears to be a clear need for a design framework that focuses specifically on IWB materials for language teaching.

Materials design: criteria for IWB-supported language teaching

In response to this need, we have developed a set of criteria for the design and evaluation of IWB-based language learning materials. These criteria were developed during the teacher training and data collection phases of the iTILT EU project, and refined during the analysis and interpretation of the findings. These guidelines are intended to support teachers in their use of the IWB as an effective tool to integrate digital technology in the regular language classroom and in particular to a) enable the visualization and apprehension of concepts b) facilitate engagement with and understanding of complex notions, and c) enhance interaction and collaboration among learners. 1.

More on that Amazing Clip of Ashley Hinton (Video) Over on the TLac Facebook page we posted an amazing video of North Star Academy’s Ashley Hinton using non-verbals to correct minor off-task behaviors while still teaching.

More on that Amazing Clip of Ashley Hinton (Video)

The clip met with instant response. Meanwhile in a fascinating view behind the curtain of Uncommon‘s culture of constant improvement, I thought I’d share the following exchange between Joaquin Hernandez, who works on the TLaC team, and Yasmin Vargas, who’s Ashley’s principal at NSA. After we posted the clip, Joaquin sent a heads up to Yasmin to celebrate Ashley’s achievement and make sure everyone on staff knew we’d posted an exemplar video from her classroom.

This is really important to us! Teachers deserve not only to learn from one another but to feel honored for their great work when their clips are used to share solutions with others. In addition to passing along the good news, Joaquin sent along some talking points–basically a quick summary of some of the things we loved about the clip.

Very useful books
