13 trucs de gestion de classe qui instaurent le respect. Quand vient le temps de gérer sa classe, on a souvent l’habitude d’instaurer un système d’émulation ou des règles et de supporter toutes ces règles par des punitions. Très vite, on apprend que ça fonctionne (du moins partiellement !), mais ça a le vicieux défaut de devoir demander une vigilance constante de la part de l’adulte en plus de miner considérablement l’apprentissage de l’autonomie de la part des élèves. De plus, ça réduit les comportements qu’on veut voir disparaître, sans toutefois les enrayer définitivement. Résultat : On s’épuise et on s’endort en réfléchissant sur comment on pourra mieux contrôler le lendemain… Il y a d’autres voies ( ?), moins visibles et surtout moins bruyantes (faisant partie du gain de l’autonomie de la pédagogie 3.0),mais combien plus payantes sur le long terme! P.S. 1-Le respect commence dès l’entrée en classe. Chaque matin, personne ne peut me déranger lorsque les élèves entrent dans la classe. 2.La porte individuelle. 4. 5. 6.Le regard 7.L’humour 8.

First Week Plans For the past three years, the beginning of every year has meant a new school, new students, new classes. Last year I had FOUR preps, one of which I didn't know about until a week before school started. So my first days of school have always been pretty mundane. Here's the syllabus, here's your book, here's the rules... blah blah blah. After reading the #mssunfun and hearing(reading) so many posts about not starting the year like a robot I'm inspired to not even mention my syllabus until our third (and first full 90 minute block) class. Google doc survey. And then in no particular order, here are some of the ideas I stole off the Middle School list, 360 FREE Warmers, Ice-Breakers and Fillers For The ESL Classroom Planning a lesson is no easy task, especially if you're about to introduce a difficult topic. Sometimes, you need a little bit of something extra to really make your lesson flow. For this reason, ESL teachers usually use warmers and fillers. Warmers are used in lessons to ease the students into the topic you're going to present. Along the same lines, fillers are used to reinforce topics or follow up with extra practice for students. BusyTeacher.org has 363 warmer and filler worksheets to make your lesson run smoothly without skipping a beat. The beauty of using warmers and fillers is that very little planning goes into using them. These warmer and filler worksheets can be used in several ways. Another great feature of these warmer/filler worksheets is that most can be used for all levels. Don’t worry about registering or subscribing, since all worksheets on BusyTeacher.org are free to download, and there's no limit to how many you can download!

Apprentissage du français écrit : mythes et réalités | profblain Depuis plusieurs années, l’encre coule à flots au sujet de la qualité du français dans toute la francophonie. Les opinions exprimées sont souvent fondées sur les représentations d’une réalité, d’une expérience ou de ce qu’on a entendu dans les médias. L’objectif de mon texte est simple : réfuter ou nuancer quelques idées souvent véhiculées en me basant sur les travaux d’experts dans le domaine. J’aborderai ici les trois mythes que j’ai entendus ou lus le plus souvent depuis 1987, année qui marque mes débuts en enseignement du français : les jeunes écrivent moins bien qu’avant; apprendre à écrire est facile, rapide et naturel et; pour aider les jeunes à améliorer leur langue écrite, il faut leur dire qu’ils sont faibles. Mythe numéro un : les jeunes écrivent moins bien qu’avant Quand j’avais 20 ans, je me souviens que les « vieux » de 50 ans disaient de ma génération qu’elle ne savait plus comment écrire. Je viens de décrire ce qui se passe dans le cerveau d’une personne unilingue.

Detective Game by Peter Pappas I did not waste the opening week of school introducing the course – my students solved mysteries. I took simplified mysteries and split them into 25-30 clues, each on a single strip of paper. Read my blog post on how I used this lesson. I used a random count off to get the kids away from their buddies and into groups of 5-6 students. This activity demonstrates to students the need for considering the contributions of every group member and gives them practice in organizing cooperatively to accomplish a task. You will need a set of clues for the case for each group. Link to Murder Mystery Clues Link to Bank Robbery Clues Note - These clues were adapted from: Learning Discussion Skills Through Games Gene and Barbara Dodds Stanford Citation Press / Scholastic Books 1969 Students are seated in a circle with the teacher standing outside the group. "Today we are going to play another game that will help improve your discussion skills.

Icebreakers that Rock We’re coming up fast on the beginning of another school year. That means a new batch of students to get to know, students who need to be made comfortable in your classroom, and who need to get to know each other. It’s essential to start building relationships with your students right from the start. And how to accomplish this? I planned to create a nice big post with dozens of icebreaker ideas you could choose from. They require students to take massive social risks with people they barely know. So I have scrapped my plan to curate good icebreakers from the Internet. In my own classrooms, with middle school, high school, and college students, I have played all three of these games with great success. Each of these will likely sound familiar to you, although the names may not be exactly what you’ve known them as. Blobs and Lines Here are some sample prompts you can use for this game: Concentric Circles Do you play any sports? This or That Sample questions for This or That:

Tips for Commenting on Student Writing | The Teaching Center Instructors who require their students to write papers dedicate many hours each semester to reading, commenting on, and grading student writing, and they often wonder if the time they have spent translates into improvements in their students' writing skills. For their part, students want constructive feedback on their writing and often express frustration when they find their instructors' comments on their papers to be mysterious, confusing, or simply too brief. The following tips can help you improve the effectiveness and efficiency with which you respond to your students' writing. These tips focus on the process of writing comments on students' papers (whether on rough drafts or final drafts), rather than on the process of grading papers. These tips are organized under four categories: Course PlanningWriting Comments in the MarginsWriting Final CommentsWhat Else Can You Do? Course Planning You might also find it helpful to develop a sequence for writing comments. 5) Be specific. Bean, J.

First Days of School Now for the lesson... I prepare a list of facts about myself, ranging from where I was born to I manage my own fantasy baseball team, and other similarly "interesting" facts.. I fold each one and put them all in my fact jar. I have a large piece of white butcher paper taped to the board with my name circled in the center. (this introduces the freeform concept mapping activity I use regularly in class) I ask for volunteers and one by one the students illustrate the fact and students guess what it is... when someone gets in right, they illustrate the next fact... Each class produces a free form map of me! The next day - I leave all the classes maps of me up, and pass out a 20 question "quiz" in multiple choice format, and tell them to feel free to use the "visual resources" on the wall. We then go back to the KWL list and I have each class contribute 3 new things they know about me...

Warm-up Ideas Warm-ups help your learners put aside their daily distractions and focus on English. If they haven't used English all day, they may take a little while to shift into it. Warm-ups also encourage whole-group participation which can build a sense of community within the group. For new groups, see the list of ice breakers further down. Brainstorm (any level, individual or group) Give a topic and ask learners to think of anything related to it.

Usages pédagogiques des cartes mentales Pour explorer des pistes d'utilisation des cartes mentales par, avec et pour les élèves. 1 Les étapes de la recherche d'information 1.1 Mobiliser ses idées / Faire émerger ses représentations / Déterminer des pistes de recherche «Pour s'informer, il est nécessaire d'avoir des idées» [1]. La démarche de recherche d'informations débute nécessairement par une étape de mobilisation d'idées. Il s'agit de faire émerger les acquis, les hypothèses, les réflexions, les représentations sans recours - au moins dans un premier temps - à une quelconque source d'information.
