Beyond Methods – Kumaravadivelu – Being and Work The Parameter of Particularity The parameter of particularity requires that any language pedagogy, to be relevant, must be sensitive to a particular group of teachers teaching a particular group of learners pursuing a particular set of goals within a particular institutional context embedded in a particular sociocultural milieu. The parameter of particularity then is opposed to the notion that there can be an established method with a generic set of theoretical principles and a generic set of classroom practices. From a pedagogic point of view, then, particularity is at once a goal and a process. The Parameter of Practicality The parameter of practicality relates to a much larger issue that directly impacts on the practice of classroom teaching, namely, the relationship between theory and practice that was discussed in Chapter 1. The Parameter of Possibility The parameter of possibility is derived mainly from the works of critical pedagogists of Freirean persuasion. Figure 2.1. Like this:

Alternatives to Book Reports Being able to consume, critique, and create media is so important for our 21st century students. While I love to write about books in my book reviews, lots of children don't share my enthusiasm. If your kids or students groan at the mere mention of writing a book report, consider some alternative ideas. Instead of a book report, have your kids make a book trailer! You can find many examples of downloadable book trailers suitable for children at Book Trailers - Movies for Literacy. Making a book trailer or any short video with your kids/students is a perfect time to discuss copyright with them. Instead of a book report, have your kids design a poster. Instead of a book report, have your kids design an advertisement for the book. Instead of a book report, have your kids design a cartoon or comic. Instead of a book report, kids can turn their family, pets and friends into stars. Instead of a book report, sum up a book (or movie or song) in four icons.

50 Inspiring Children’s Books with a Positive Message “The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”―Dr. Seuss EDITOR’S NOTE: Don’t miss Part 2 of this list that has been published HERE. With technology developing at a record pace and kids mastering iPads before they’re even out of diapers, it’s more important than ever to instill the love of reading in our children. Although it’s never too late, the importance of getting kids to develop a love for reading early on often correlates with a love for learning, a passion for lifelong reading, and so many other positive traits that ultimately lead to the empowerment needed for success. In our home we have acquired quite the collection of literary gems—in fact, we have more books than toys. Since reading is a passion for us, we wanted to share some our favorite children’s books that contain a poignant, powerful message.

What is TBL? | Task-based Learning Special Interest Group There is no universally adopted definition of Task-based learning (TBL or, depending on its proponent’s sensibilities, TBLT, TBLL, or TBI). In its broadest sense, TBL refers to an approach to teaching and learning which views the completion of meaningful tasks through authentic communication as an effective way to improve language proficiency. These two adjectives, ‘authentic’ and ‘meaningful’ have entered the academic discourse of EFL instruction to the extent that they can sometimes appear to mean whatever the writer wishes them to. However it is important to remember the crucial methodological difference between authentic and meaningful approaches such as TBL and those adopted in many junior and high schools in Japan and many Asian EFL contexts. At the heart of TBL is the task. It is generally accepted that the idea of task-based methodology arose from the work of N.S.

Home | Practice Makes Perfect gnitive Differences Between Adults & Children Author: Jeff Durham - Updated: 15 September 2012| Comment There’s an old saying that goes “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” and, whether you believe that or not, the same principle cannot be applied to humans. In fact, adults can learn just as easily as children but there are several basic differences between what works effectively for adults and what works best for children. Experience Of Life As an adult, you’ll have had far more experience of life in general than a child and whilst this can help an adult more than a child when it comes to learning, it can also hinder them and a child’s lesser experiences can occasionally prove more beneficial. How Adults And Children Use Different Techniques For Learning For an adult learner, their experiences of life will have been far more vast and diverse than that of a child’s and their brain’s maturity will enable them to apply their learning through relating it to certain experiences they’ve had. The Significance Of ‘Purpose’ In Learning
