Langues vivantes - Cadre européen commun de référence (CECRL) Le CECRL : une base européenne pour l'enseignement des langues Le Cadre européen commun de référence pour les langues (CECRL) est le fruit de plusieurs années de recherche linguistique menée par des experts des Etats membres du Conseil de l'Europe.

Publié en 2001, il constitue une approche totalement nouvelle qui a pour but de repenser les objectifs et les méthodes d'enseignement des langues et, surtout, il fournit une base commune pour la conception de programmes, de diplômes et de certificats. En ce sens, il est susceptible de favoriser la mobilité éducative et professionnelle. Télécharger le CECRL (896,37 ko) Ce n'est ni un manuel ni un référentiel de langues. Le cadre est un outil conçu pour répondre à l'objectif général du Conseil de l'Europe qui est de " parvenir à une plus grande unité parmi ses membres " et d'atteindre ce but par l'" adoption d'une démarche commune dans le domaine culturel ". Le cadre introduit au moins quatre nouveautés : La notion de " tâche " New Study Finds Advantages To Collaborative Learning.

EnglishCentral. The Best Resources For Using “If This Animal Or Image Could Talk” Lesson Idea In Class. A fun writing lesson for English Language Learners is showing videos or images of animals and asking them to write down what they think they believe the animal might be thinking.

I’ve written a number of posts related to these kinds of lessons and variations on it (having paintings or parts of the earth talk) and thought I’d bring them, and additional resources, all together in one “Best” list (feel free to contribute your own ideas!) : Video Challenge For Students: What Is This Lion Thinking? “What Is This Animal Thinking or Saying (If It Could Talk)?”

What Would This Animal Be Saying And/Or Thinking? What Are People In This Painting Thinking? I share similar ideas in my New York Times post headlined Teaching and Learning About Animals.

You can also take a look at my 2nd Big List of Christmas Videos - ...e!) Ahh Christmas. The tree, the stockings, the mistletoe and - of course - the holiday television programming. Some of my fondest Christmas memories were spent in front a of television watching such classics as the animated Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer or one of the myriad versions of Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol'.

Check Out my related New York Times post The Best Fun Videos For English Language Learners In 2015 – So Far Movies and television shows can be an effective tool for teaching and learning English (or, for that matter, any academic subject) if used strategically and not as a “babysitting” device.

I thought it might be useful to prepare a “The Best…” list resources that teachers might find useful related to using video in the ESL/EFL classroom. I’ve appreciated the suggestions that readers have offered and, even if they didn’t make my list, I’ve the titles that they have recommended near the end of post. Before I list specific movies or shows, I’ll begin by some ideas, and sites, where you can get more recommendations on how to use video in the classroom.

Here are my picks: Funny films | Search Results. Shadow puppet | Search Results. As regular readers know, I’ve begun posting my mid-year “The Best….” lists. There are nearly 1,500 regularly updated lists now. You can see them all here. As usual, in order to make this list, a site has to be: * accessible to English Language Learners and non-tech savvy users. * free-of-charge. * appropriate for classroom use. * completely browser-based with no download required (however, I’ve begun to make exceptions for special mobile apps). Some sites I’m including this year are primarily geared towards teachers creating content for classroom use, but could also easily be used by students. It’s possible that a few of these sites began earlier than this year, but, if so, I’m including them in this list because they were “new to me” in 2015. You might want to visit previous editions, as well as The “All-Time” Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education; The “All-Time” Best Ways To Create Online Content Easily & Quickly and The “All-Time” Best 2.0 Tools For Beginning English Language Learners.

Fantastic Videos For The Holidays. I’m a huge fan of video and especially during holiday time when teachers are in need of strong language learning material in video. Video is something the class can share and celebrate the end of the semester as class. Of course, there are so many other great reasons to use it daily in class. Here are a few of my “go to” Xmas video lessons. EFL Classroom 2.0 members can get them with full resources for teaching + hundreds more full video lessons. Just click through on the title of each. A unique thing about the community is you know the video is always there unlike Youtube where often these perfect videos you spend time making lessons for, disappear. Also, on EFL 2.0, you can download most videos for reliable, offline viewing.

I use short, funny video clips a lot when I’m teaching ELLs, and you can read in detail about how I use them in The Best Popular Movies/TV Shows For ESL/EFL (& How To Use Them). In short, there are many ways to use them that promote speaking, listening, writing and reading (including having students describe – in writing and verbally – a chronological description of what they saw). I’ve posted quite a few of them during the second half of this year, and I thought it would be useful to readers — and to me — if I brought them together in one post. I’ve also published quite a few during the previous seven years of this blog.

Response: Strategies For Dealing With An 'Awful' Textbook. This week's question is: How can you handle an awful textbook? Many of us teachers have little or no say in what official textbook is used by our students. And many educators and students would agree that it's not unusual for us to be stuck with an awful one. How can we deal with such a lemon in way that keeps us out of hot water with administrators, but also provides a rich educational experience for our students? Today, educators Mary Ann Zehr, Christopher Lehman, 2015 National Teacher of the Year Shanna Peeples, Kristina J. Doubet, Jessica A. Hockett, Kimberly Carraway, and Libby Woodfin share their suggestions on how we can deal with this challenge.

Before I turn this column over to my guest, I'd like to share a few of my own thoughts. Textbooks can be a two-edged sword -- they can be efficient, provide order, and save teacher's time, they can provide good models, and they can provide a guide for learning. The level of textbook flexibility provided to teachers varies, however. Try this: MENH1012598A.

Article 3 - L'arrêté du 19 décembre 2006 portant cahier des charges de la formation des maîtres en institut universitaire de formation des maîtres est abrogé. Article 4 - Le secrétaire général, le directeur général de l'enseignement scolaire et les recteurs sont chargés, chacun en ce qui le concerne, de l'exécution du présent arrêté, qui entre en vigueur le 1er septembre 2010 et sera publié au Journal officiel de la République française.

V4.0 was published in March 2015 but I knew I was onto something useful when I first put the Padagogy Wheel together in July 2012. So why the need for Version 2.0? We need to have transformation at the core of what we do: If it is all about the students, where do you start with curriculum and/or teaching design – surely it is with what do you want your graduates to look like?

Technology integration into the fabric of learning and teaching: is where we should be heading with all we do as teachers. Finally, can you help with V3.0? New Padagogy Wheel Helps You Integrate Technology Using SAMR Model. Sometimes a visual guide comes along and it just makes total sense.

That’s how I felt about Allan Carrington’s clever ‘Padagogy Wheel‘ which we featured on Edudemic last week. Check out the previous version then view the one below to see the differences. From what I can tell, putting the wheel on this site has generated a bit of buzz and I’m glad we could help spread the knowledge. But I was quite amazed this morning when I saw that the Padagogy Wheel had been updated. Now at version 2.0, it features another band around the edge focusing on the SAMR Model and on helping teachers (and admins) effectively integrate education technology. In this new model Allan sorted the dozens of apps and steps of Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy into the SAMR Model (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, Redefinition).

27 Tips For Effective Classroom Management. Getting students to pay attention, let alone actually learn something, is a challenge. It takes grit, determination, creativity, and a close eye. Teachers, in-classroom parents, assistants, and administrators need to be as up to speed as possible in order to be effective. When it comes to effective classroom management, there are a couple dozen things you should know. A wonderful visual created by Mia MacMeekin has me contemplating and thinking a bit differently about what it takes to effectively manage a classroom. From how to properly engage students to what it means to “lead” a classroom, there’s a lot to know. This graphic touches on a couple dozen powerful (but brief, not to worry!) Ways to get a classroom humming right along. Personally, I like the ‘signal’ idea where you have a predetermined sign or signal that shows the students are either off task or simply not paying attention.
